While isolating can be tempting, especially in the winter, it’s important to remember that building connections will lead to greater life satisfaction. Luckily, residents of our Lincoln apartments have access to a built-in community. In addition, communal spaces and welcoming amenities make it even easier to connect with others
To sync up with fellow residents, try these activities to get the connection flowing.
Create a Club
A club offers an atmosphere where you can connect with people with similar interests. Additionally, meeting consistently provides ample time and repetition that helps form meaningful friendships. Popular clubs include book clubs, gardening clubs, and DIY craft clubs. Recreational groups, like a running club or a sports club, are also popular. With communities offering tennis courts and other recreational spaces, members already have what they need to get started.
The only thing better than volunteering alone is volunteering as a group! Therefore, connect members of your community and then lend a helping hand to serve an even broader community. Not only will you be helping the lives of others, but it’s a great way to connect with neighbors over shared values. Great group volunteer opportunities can often be found at food banks, environmental organizations looking for help with cleanup, and nonprofits that need assistance with fundraising.
Community events serve as a great way to bring everyone in a community together. Whether you’re hosting an outdoor movie night, a potluck, or a summer pool party, connecting with others in a welcoming community space will be refreshing. A great time to host an event is when there is an increase in new residents in a community. If you’re noticing new leases being signed, consider hosting an event to informally welcome new residents.
