Life In Hickory

What’s more, Hickory, NC, is a wonderful place to be able to live. Far enough away from Atlanta to feel distinct (and a long enough drive away to not have to worry about traffic nightmares) Hickory offers a wealth of attractions. From boating on Lake Hickory to experiencing why Hickory has been named one of top cities to travel to (specifically that it’s “Hipster-friendly” — whatever that means!) to trying one of our many fantastic restaurants, it’s great. Sadly, we don’t have enough time in today’s post to give a complete representation of what makes life in Hickory so special, so we’d encourage you to browse through our past posts to get a better feel for Hickory activities!

Apartment Living Tips

Whether you have been living in apartments for years or you’ve just set out on your own and are excited to see what living alone is all about, today’s post might have something for you. We hope you enjoy this practical, if not arbitrary set of tips that concern your wellness and everyday living habits. Enjoy!

Let’s Start With Some Light Stretching

If you are of the ilk that tend to sit behind a desk all day, the odds are you could use some semi-regular stretching to feel your best. Your muscles are probably too tight from day after day of key-punching (the modern-day equivalent of pen-pushing, we presume) and sitting on your rump, you might deal with shoulder, back, neck, or leg issues.

We aren’t doctors or physical therapists, let’s get that clear. We are advocates of your health though, so that’s why we’ll tell you to get a foam roller and a yoga mat (you don’t have to do Yoga unless you want to, don’t worry). Next, target the area that is giving you issues, and roll that muscle out by putting some weight on it while you go back and forth with the roller. See? No yoga required, although we will warrant that doing some yoga from time to time will help you feel great. Plus, you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home to do it. Keep in mind, however, that The Legends Apartments of Hickory offer a first-class fitness center onsite — you know, if that’s your thing.

Control Your Humidity Levels

You might be well familiar with the fact that the humidity level of your home can dramatically impact the health of your hair, skin, and general well-being, but you probably did not know that it can also affect the health of your home itself? Whether you call our luxury HIckory apartments home or not, the humidity levels of your home should be right around 45 percent. Anything above 50 percent is too high, and anything under 30 percent is way too dry and will likely lead to dry skin and worse.

But determining if you are in that range isn’t always practical. But there are easy ways to tell if you are in a good range. If you are too humid, you’ll probably see condensation build on windows along with moisture and even mold on the walls. If your humidity level is too low, there might be an increase in static electricity, along with dried out millwork and paint. Here in North Carolina, we run a lot of AC because of the heat and humidity outside, so our issue ironically has to do with the former. We recommend going with a humidifier in order to solve this issue. Getting a decently affordable and portable humidifier will let you choose between warm and cold mist — so it will be comfortable the whole year round. Keep in mind, however, that most portable humidifiers are not without their upkeep, as the reservoir should be filled every day or so.

Luckily, The Legends Apartments is able to keep your environmental settings at optimal levels nearly 100 percent of the time. That’s just one more reason our residents love to call our Hickory community home!

De-Stress Your Bedroom

We do our absolute best to make sure you are set up with a calming, elegant bedroom and apartment in general, here at The Legends. Even still, there are a few bad choices people can make when it comes to how they set up their room — choices that can lead to the inducing of stress.

Perhaps chief among them is poor air circulation. You need to make sure that there is airflow present throughout the room. An air purifier, in tandem with the aforementioned humidifier, should help in this regard. You also need to wash your windows often to make sure everything stays fresh and clean.

Another issue you might have is doing work in your bedroom. Maybe you set your office up in your bedroom from the start, or maybe you never intended to work so often from your room — but it grew into a bad habit over time. Maybe, you aren’t even aware of it being an issue. However, we’d submit that keeping your bedroom a sanctuary of rest is vital. You need to associate it with pleasant, relaxing, calming things that help you unwind — not vice versa.

Finally, make sure you don’t have too much clutter in your bedroom. It might sound silly, but having a clean space can dramatically impact how much peace you get from being in your room. To remedy the bad habit of these piles forming in the first place, try to force yourself to put away items that you’ve used (including your clothes at the end of the day) when you are done with them. You can do it! We believe in you, and you’ll be better off for it.
