The Slow Living Trend: Enjoy It at Harbor Club on Lake Oconee

Wednesday, May 3, 2017  |  admin  |  Latest News


Hurry, hurry! Isn’t it sad that our modern world dictates that everything must be so fast? Fast internet, fast food, fast cars to get us from place to place, well — fast. With everything moving at hyperspeed, busy people become even busier. Quick has to be quicker. Fast has to be faster. Over time, you feel compelled and almost required, to multi-task and speedy at almost everything. And with that, your stress level invariably increases.

Sure, you may think you’ll find time to decompress, but have you? And if you did, was it enough time? And better yet, what do you have to show for that down time? Was it “quality time?” If you’re like most people, the answers to these questions were a resounding “no.” Don’t feel bad though. There’s a fix!

Introducing “slow living.” If you haven’t heard of it before, Create The Good Life describes it like this: “Slow Living means structuring your life around meaning and fulfillment. Similar to ‘voluntary simplicity’ and ‘downshifting,’ it emphasizes a less-is-more approach, focusing on the quality of your life.” Boiled down, slow living is essentially slowing down to restore the balance in you and your family’s lives.

Our community is one where slow living is not only encouraged, it’s wholeheartedly embraced by our residents and members. This is a place where happy people take the time to lead fulfilling lives. How? Here are just a few of the ways we make it happen:

We spend quality time with family

When you live someplace that has numerous ways to experience family time together, more often than not, you actually get to take part in and enjoy that quality time. Whether it be spending time on Lake Oconee, playing golf together, getting fit together, or simply indulging in a special meal (where you don’t have to cook or clean!) together, it’s incredibly easy to find meaningful time with family at Harbor Club.

We spend quality time with friends

When you live amongst like-minded people, you tend to develop awesome friendships that last a lifetime. Listening to live music at our outdoor concerts at The Boathouse, dancing to Zumba, experiencing mindfulness together at yoga classes, playing trivia at our trivia nights, or having neighbors over for a nice cookout are just a few of the ways to slow down and spend quality time with friends here at Harbor Club. When you live at Lake Oconee, the possibilities are endless.

We spend more time in nature

If you live in a naturally beautiful place, it’s so easy to step outside and enjoy all that nature has to offer. That kind of ready access offers unparalleled quiet and solitude that are hard to find in more urban environments. Play a round of golf on our awe-inspiring course, take a moment to hike our wooded trails, throw a line in the water at Lake Oconee or one of our many stocked ponds, garden in our Victory garden, or grab a good book and read outside in the quiet warmth of the sun. No matter the season, you have lots of ways to truly enjoy the outdoors and nature in all its glory at Harbor Club.

What does all of this add up to? Memories — ones that you’ll remember and treasure forever. It’s all a part of what we are proud to call the “Harbor Club Life.” If you’re ready to get a taste of it for yourself, stop by! We’d love to show you around the place. Like so many others, you’re bound to fall in love with our beautiful homes, the access to Lake Oconee, and the gorgeous golf course views… but you don’t know until you try. Let’s make arrangements today.
