While the weather has been very cold, the communities have been bustling with activity! Pacific Springs Village brought several of their outdoor activities indoors in preparation for their February Olympic Games.
Weekly practices were held for each activity. The activities included shuffleboard, brain games, wellness jeopardy, a coordination and balance activity, and an obstacle course.
Residents exercised their brain by putting together challenging puzzles under a time limit and answering questions about the body, nutrition and wellness staff. For the coordination and balance activity, residents raced each other while carrying a small beach ball without their hands. They also carried an egg on a spoon using both hands. Finally, they ended with an egg toss with partners, creating more distance between each other until the egg dropped. The last week they took part in an obstacle course where they made their way around specific stations worth various points. These stations included a time limit puzzle, golf, making bean bags and washers, throwing a noodle through a hoop, and ladder ball.
The residents got plenty of exercise out of these activities and are ready for the upcoming competition this February! This was a great way to stay warm and active during a time of year that can often be cold and dreary.
