When you think of purchasing luxury homes in Hawaii the first thing that comes to mind likely isn’t your well-being. Most want to enjoy a respite from our hectic world, a place where they can indulge their senses, relax, and simply enjoy their surroundings. Did you know that in 2016 the state of Hawaii held the top spot in the U.S. for the highest level of well-being? Last year a survey conducted by Gallup-Healthways found that Hawaii is beneficial and restorative in terms of health and well-being.
Not surprising, considering the spectacular waterfalls, beautiful beaches, golf and hiking opportunities, water sports, and the nice weather year-round! Whether on the Big Island or other islands in the state, many of the more than 177,000 interviewed in conducting the survey agreed that Hawaii fulfilled their lives in terms of financial security, sense of purpose, physical health and active lifestyle, social relationships, relationship to the community which directly impacts their quality of life, productivity in the workplace, and healthcare costs.
Considering the abundance of sunshine and access to magnificent beaches, hiking, fishing, snorkeling, golfing, biking, and other opportunities for those who enjoy the outdoors and an active lifestyle, it really isn’t all that surprising to most that Hawaii stands out when it comes to well-being. Whether you’re vacationing, or for those who live and work in Hawaii, there’s much to be said for the stunning waterfalls, volcanoes, pristine beaches and spectacular landscapes that make up our islands. When a few days or a week can benefit your mental/physical well-being and reduce stress while vacationing, just imagine how living in such splendid surroundings can affect your life.
