It's no secret stress can have a major impact on your health. Not dealing with the stress in your life can lead to headaches, chest pain, fatigue, upset stomach and difficulty sleeping. Overstressed folks end up anxious, irritable and even depressed. All this can lead to overeating, alcohol/drug abuse or even social withdrawal.

Last year, a survey of 2,500 adults across America found 49 percent reporting a major stressful event over the past year. Health issues – either personal or in the family – top the list of stressors. Also on the list are financial and work worries along with parenting challenges.

Sure, managing stress is often easier said than done but there are ways to deal with the stress in your life. A key method for handling stress is through exercise and physical activity. You don’t have to invest in pricey fitness equipment to get some exercise. Often, everything you need is right outside your front door.

Residents at The Ponds in Summerville are blessed to live in a tranquil setting surrounded by nature and ample opportunities to unwind from the stress of work, major life changes, parenting and simply the busyness of life.

The Summerville Family YMCA located at the entrance to The Ponds provides fitness opportunities, and residents can enjoy a reduced membership rate. Classes include spinning, kickboxing, Zumba, Pilates, Jiu Jitsu and cardio classes. For extra unwinding, take a yoga class where you can get in some great stretching, breathing and relaxation to melt away the tension in your shoulders.

The Ponds has miles of trails available to residents who need to take a walk and clear their head. Walking the natural trails is the perfect way to quiet your mind, body and soul. Get some exercise and soak in some peace and quiet – just what the doctor ordered.

The Ponds is a true community. With Southern front porches, an open-air Pavilion for parties and gatherings, you can get to know your neighbors. Not only are you having a fun, relaxing oyster roast or barbecue but you’re also forging new friendships with people who can help you out during stressful times. Don’t just meet your neighbors when you need a cup of sugar, but make meaningful connections that will stand the test of the time and the trials that life brings.

Who knew picking a place to live could have such incredible health benefits.
