4 Healthy Retirement Habits to Help You Live Well in AZ

Our health should always be a priority.

Our health should always be a priority. But as we age, it’s even more important to focus on our mental, physical, and spiritual well-being as a whole. When you choose a retirement community, be sure to look for a place where you can practice healthy retirement habits. That’s easy to do at a place like Solterra Senior Living. That’s why we want to share our top four healthy retirement habits to help you live well in Arizona.

Stay Active

You should get physical exercise throughout your life, but it’s essential to stay active as you grow older. According to the AARP, remaining mobile can improve your overall heart health. Of course, you have to work within your physical limits, but even moderate activity, such as doing housework and gardening, can reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease.

Solterra recognizes the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. To help you live well at our Arizona communities, we have a variety of amenities and on-site wellness activities centered on keeping residents engaged and active. Whether you want to have regular visits with a physical therapist or simply enjoy leisurely strolls along one of our scenic paths, we can provide a care plan for you to stay physically fit.

Exercise Your Mind

At Solterra, we believe in nurturing the mind, body, and spirit. We encourage you to keep your mind sharp and exercise the brain just as you would your body. We have several wellness offerings to help you do just that.

For instance, our communities offer a private library so you can do research or sit down with one of your favorite books. Studies have shown that regular reading enhances the lives of seniors. Reading regularly can not only help strengthen the memory, but also reduce stress, improve sleep, and delay the onset of Alzheimer’s and dementia.


As we grow older, it can be easy to lose the connection of close friendships. We become busy or lose track of time, and suddenly we haven’t spoken to an old friend in quite some time. But we believe in the importance of maintaining close social connections. To foster close relationships, we have activity programs where you can bond with other residents over a shared passion.

If you want to simply relax and have some fun, grab a friend and shoot some pool in our billiards room. Or schedule an appointment in our full-service beauty salon, where you can enjoy a day of pampering with your best pal. We also offer restaurant-style dining so you can plan a dinner date with a few friends. The only problem you’ll have at Solterra is managing your busy social calendar.

Find Purpose

Everyone is looking for a sense of purpose and fulfillment in their lives. That doesn’t change when we retire. The care team at Solterra encourages you to continue to pursue your passions during retirement.

Whether you have a goal you’re working toward or want to give back to the community by volunteering, we will support your passions. We offer transportation services to get you out and about, enjoying the same quality of life you’re used to having.

At Solterra, we believe it’s your life. We simply want to help you live it to the best of your ability. And there are plenty of opportunities for you to live well in Arizona when you choose to stay with us.
