Whether you moved into your apartment during the height of the coronavirus pandemic or have just recently signed a lease with Harborside Village, we understand how daunting it can be to live alone when Maryland is practicing social distancing. For young adults, social distancing can feel incredibly difficult — especially when you’re living alone. According to the United States Census Bureau, young adults are more likely to report anxiety and depression from living independently than older generations. With Harborside Village, living alone doesn’t have to be depressing. As the spring season begins to arrive, you can enjoy our additional amenities: pool, gym, and more. Here are a few tips for millennials living alone in their apartment.
Living Alone in an Apartment: Regularly Work Out
At Harborside Village, take advantage of our gym to ensure that you’re regularly working out. You can even walk around our property by Gunpowder Cove for some fresh air whenever you need it. The perks to working out? Your body will naturally release endorphins, which can help improve your mood. When the pool opens, consider swimming as an additional activity to add to your workout routine. Regular workouts can help young adults who live alone to feel happier, healthier and boost the release of endorphins.
Self Care in an Apartment and Eating Healthy
At Harborside Village, our kitchens feature eat-in dining room space that can help you stay aware of what food you’re choosing to eat. By making healthy choices for yourself during the pandemic, you can feel good about caring for your health. It’s also important to focus on self-care throughout the ongoing coronavirus pandemic while you live alone. Whether that means reading a book on your patio, taking a bubble bath, or simply ensuring that you’ve showered regularly — self-care can go a long way for individuals living alone.
Stay Digitally Connected with Family and Friends
It’s important to remember to keep in touch with your family and friends while you’re living alone. Even if you don’t feel comfortable seeing your family and friends face-to-face, you can stay digitally connected through FaceTime and apps like Zoom for virtual gatherings. By staying digitally connected with family and friends, you can enjoy living in your living space without having to worry about cleaning up after a gathering!
