Living in Lakeland Sandpiper Golf Community Homes: Why Playing Golf is Good for Your Health

If you are looking for a  Lakeland Sandpiper Golf Community home for sale, you are actually doing your body a favor. Playing golf has been proven to be good for your health.

Golf is often seen as a leisurely sport, but it’s actually a great form of exercise. Studies have proven that people who get at least 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise at least 3-4 days a week reduce their risk of heart disease, bone disease, stroke, and arthritis.

Golfers who carry their own clubs get the benefits of both cardio and weight-bearing exercise. Since most golf games take between 3 to 4 hours, you can get the recommended amount of cardiovascular exercise with only one game of golf  at Lakeland Sandpiper Golf and Community Club.

Aside from carrying your own golf equipment, the walking required in playing golf is also a great form of exercise. The average 18-hole golf course is between 5 and 8 miles. If you keep a brisk pace while walking from hole to hole, you definitely get a good cardio workout. Walking back to the clubhouse from the last hole is usually a mile, so with all the walking from hole to hole and back to the clubhouse, you can burn up to 250 calories or more.

If you play golf a few times a week in Lakeland Sandpiper Golf and Community Club and combine it with a healthy diet, you may start shedding a few pounds.

Since golf is an outdoor sport, golfers and residents of Lakeland golf homes are able to soak up more sun and more Vitamin D, which is a vitamin that a regular diet may lack. Since golfers absorb more Vitamin D, which is the “feel good” vitamin, their general well-being improves. They sleep better, have higher energy levels, and their calcium absorption and cell growth improves.

Golfing also improves one’s self esteem and happiness because it is a social activity. Interacting with others who share the same interest is scientifically proven to increase one’s self esteem and happiness. Golfing can lift depression and improve your outlook in life, which greatly improves your mental health and leaves you with a feeling of satisfaction.

 

All these prove that although it is not a hardcore sport, golfing is good for your health and overall well-being. If you want to enjoy the benefits of golf all year round, buy a Lakeland Sandpiper golf front home for sale now!
