What Does Wellness Mean to Lodha?
In 2023, the concept of wellness has evolved to take on a whole new meaning. No longer does wellness signify solely physical health; instead, mental health, emotional wellbeing and spirituality have come to the fore as integral components of a healthy, happy way of life. As London’s population continues to boom and cites around the world grow ever more vibrant and frenetic, balancing wellbeing with busy professional and social lives has become an important, yet complex priority for many city dwellers.
“For Lodha UK, wellness is about creating a sanctuary for our residents amidst the fast pace of life in a world city.”
Each of our projects is situated moments from some of London’s finest green spaces, promoting a connection to nature that we believe has a profound impact on mental and physical wellbeing. As many of us learnt during the pandemic, taking a short outdoor walk every morning can provide a moment of tranquillity and calm before an otherwise busy day. Recent studies have shown that even a short burst of daylight to start the day kick-starts the circadian rhythm, letting the body know it is time to wake up. This in turn has multiple benefits for our productivity throughout the day, as well as promoting a deeper, easier sleep when night-time arrives.
In each of our developments, we have worked with experts across a range of fields to ensure that a healthful and happy lifestyle is within reach for residents, whatever their age or lifestyle. Whether this be clean air filters throughout the building, or dedicated wellness floors and meditation zones, every care has been taken to provide safe and tranquil spaces for residents to exercise, unwind or relax with their family.
