The secret to living happily ever after23rd February 2017
There’s no getting away from the importance of health, but it’s easy to push it to the bottom or our to-do list, with such hectic schedules. And it’s not just about hopping on the treadmill to do another ten minutes uphill before heading home for a quinoa and salmon salad. Emotional wellbeing is just as important as physical health, and many of us forget that our environment can play a big part in our ability to relax – or not. With the busy commute to work and constant demands on our time and energy, whether we’re in the office or at home, there never seems enough time to stop and reflect. Smart phones are one of the modern world’s best inventions and our worst enemy. We are constantly at their mercy, with every ping sending anxiety inducing neurotransmissions flying around our brain. It’s no wonder we’re a nation of stressed out individuals. But, the key to keeping all this interruption and demand on our sagacity to a minimum, is to make sure our home invites the right energy to create a place where we can relax and unwind.
New build homes like The Madison offer just this and more. The architectural design incorporates acoustics, natural light and luxurious living – all the components to facilitate a holistic wellbeing. Their development team have drawn up plans for each apartment to include a meditative environment, whether that’s to spend five minutes taking in the breath-taking views across the capital while drinking your cortado, or space to roll out a yoga mat and connect mind and body. Each of these new builds in London offers just that – the space to create your own sanctuary. This combined with the fantastic gym facilities, means that it’s hard to find an excuse not to be in tip top condition.
Some of the most forward thinking developers and architects are incorporating into their planning design what they believe to be the essence of a happy, balanced lifestyle, fusing together a good live / work equilibrium. This ethos of mental and physical harmony is evident in the new build properties in London that are currently appearing on our real estate shelves. They have everything you need to create a positive home environment to make sure that your space gives you the tranquillity you deserve. For example, while the apartments at The Madison are situated only minutes from the heart of Canary Wharf, a location buzzing with energy night and day, you would never know this from the calm interior the apartments offer. With its cool, contemporary décor, use of glazing to maximise natural light and sound resistant construction, the apartments are a real haven for the soul. This is vitally important in promoting both physical and mental wellbeing. So, while it’s great to whiz about the gym flexing those muscles and detoxing with kale smoothies, it’s also time to remember to bring the Zen back into your home.Back to listings
