Five Reasons to Run in Anaheim

February 11th, 2017

Running ShoesIf you’re seeking ways to keep fit and active, you should consider taking up running. Following are  five of the many benefits that residents of apartments in Anaheim can get from developing a running routine.

It’s a Great Cardiovascular Workout

Running on a regular basis provides an excellent cardiovascular workout. You’ll lower your risk of heart disease and related conditions such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels. It also might help reduce the risk of developing Type II diabetes and certain types of cancer. It’ll also keeps your joints healthy and in good working order, and the healthy glow you’ll get from running on a regular basis will be noticed by everyone.

It’s a Stress Buster

Running also helps release endorphins, leading to reduced stress levels among those who practice this form of exercise on a regular basis. Some mental heath experts even advocate running as a way to ward off anxiety and depression. There is also evidence that exists that show that it might be instrumental in helping people overcome drug and alcohol addiction. Many runners claim that they use their time while running to work out their problems.

It’s a Calorie Buster

Few exercise methods are more effective at slaying calories than running. If you’re like most people and are short on time due to the demands of employment, family or education, you’ll appreciate an all-in-one workout that provides an efficient way to stay slim and healthy. Many people begin a running program as a part of a weight loss plan and become running enthusiasts for life.

It’s Low Cost

You don’t have to fork over your hard earned cash for a costly gym membership to get the benefits of running — all you’ll need is a good pair of running shoes and some workout clothing. Some people decide to purchase a treadmill, while others prefer to take advantage of the excellent weather offered by the Anaheim area by doing their running outdoors. Even if you opt for a treadmill, it’s still a less expensive option than joining a gym — and one that offers you far greater flexibility.

It Might Make You Live Longer

It stands to reason that happier, healthier people enjoy longer lives than their less fortunate counterparts, and several studies back this up. If you want to live a long life, running on a regular basis just might help you to achieve that goal.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us at your earliest convenience if we can be of assistance in helping you live the best possible life in beautiful Anaheim, CA.

5 Hobbies You Need to Try

December 6th, 2016

ArcheryOur hobbies keep us sane.  We find a spark of life in perfecting our backswing, opening our sketchbook, or burying our flower bulbs.  However, sometimes life lags, and picking up a new hobby seems downright necessary.  Instead of scouring the web for choices, the folks at The Crossing Apartments in Anaheim thought we’d propose these five hobbies for you to try today:

1. Climbing at Sender One

Sender One in Santa Ana, CA can get you outfitted for climbing your first wall.  Offering trained instructors, Sender One also offers equipment rentals while also requiring you to learn the basics of climbing.  So, if you’re new to climbing, expect to enjoy the smell of chalk dust, tug of the rope and the fun of wall climbing that’s a feeling like no other.

2. Calligraphy

Despite calligraphy’s age you can still find it all over the place.  Writer Cristina Vanko shows in a 2014 article for The Atlantic how she used calligraphy to text message.  In a 2015, a The New Yorker piece written by Alexandra Lange introduces readers to calligraphy on Instagram.  Clearly, calligraphy has lots of uses, and it’s easy to get started by searching online.

3. Archery

It’s true you won’t be splitting arrows with dead-on accurate shots in any archery competitions.  Yet you can still have fun and hit the target, especially if you ask someone to show you proper form.  Beginner set’s are available for under $40, a relatively low initial expense.  Be forewarned, though, that archery’s something you can really get into … meaning there’s always a better bow, arrow and target for you to add to your collection.

4. Disc Golf

Disc golf is more than throwing frisbees at baskets in the park.  To start with, there are various shapes and weights of discs and none of them feel like your cheap old frisbee.  Many beginner courses offer few obstacles, relative flatness, and a par 3 or lower.  However, more advanced courses sport tougher terrain and trees, stumps or rocks that get in the way of your hole-in-one.

5. Geocaching (and EarthCache)

With geocaching, you use GPS coordinates to look for secret caches in town or out.  Register a free account on geocaching.com and start finding easy or hard geocaches near you.  Bonus points for finding an EarthCache, which features an interesting geological feature and requires some extra steps before you can log it.

The ideal hobby is one you live near and can do throughout the season or year.  Fortunately at The Crossing, lots of these hobbies can be done within a few miles.  Why not call us at (877) 719-4818 to reserve your apartment today.

4 Tips to Help You Sleep Better

October 3rd, 2016

Getting a full six to eight hours of sleep at night can make you feel healthier and more energized throughout the day. Unfortunately, many people either have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. In an effort to help residents of our apartments in Anaheim, California feel better, we are providing tips that will hopefully help you sleep better.

Sleep Tip #1: Create a Schedule and Stick to It

It might be tempting to want to sleep in on the weekends or take a day off of work to lay around, but that could cause severe problems when you try to go to bed. Our bodies are designed to operate on a schedule. If you interrupt that schedule by sleeping an extra hour or two on the weekends, you could find it difficult to fall asleep not just that evening but for days afterwards.

In an effort to improve your sleep, create a sleep schedule and stick to it. This means getting up and going to sleep at roughly the same time every day whether it is a weekday or weekend.

Sleep Tip #2: Remove All Electronics From Your Bedroom

Removing all electronics from your bedroom will help you avoid the temptation to check emails, start watching a movie or play a game online. Without this temptation you will be able to focus on falling asleep.

Removing temptation isn’t the only reason to get rid of the electronics in your room. Many scientists believe that the blue light comes from some types of electronics, such as cellphones or laptops, could work as a stimulant and make it difficult for you to fall asleep.

Sleep Tip #3 Avoid Caffeine Before Bed

Caffeine is a stimulant. Drinking it right before bed could cause problems when you try to fall asleep. Try to stop drinking all caffeinated beverages approximately 4 to 6 hours before you need to fall asleep.

Sleep Tip #4 Try Taking a Hot Bath Before Bed

Relaxing before bed can help you calm your body and make it easier for you to fall asleep. A great way to relax before bed is to take a nice, warm bath.

Of course, even if you follow these tips you won’t be able to fall asleep unless you feel safe and comfortable in your home. The Crossing Apartments have wonderful lofts, 1 & 2 bedroom apartments and townhomes that will make a perfect home for you and your family. Call us today to schedule a tour of our apartments in Anaheim.
