Choose the right desk. This is going to be an important part of designing your home office. Find a desk that not only fits well into your apartment, but also fits your style of work.

Using the Signature Pointe Pool this Summer? Practice Sun & Water Safety

Summer is in full force. If you want to get into great shape for summer 2015, start playing tennis on a regular basis. You’ll find your overall fitness improves, alongside agility, flexibility, and stamina.

If you haven’t played tennis before, check out these tips to get started:

Using the Signature Pointe Pool this Summer? Practice Sun & Water Safety

  1. Choose a lightweight and wide headed tennis racquet to give you more chance of hitting the ball. 
  2. Find the most comfortable grip for you by trying out different ways of holding the racquet.
  3. Practice forehand and backhand strokes as much as possible, and spend time practicing your serve. The more time you practice, the better you will become.

Tennis is a social activity, and you’ll find you soon make friends at any tennis club or court where you play on a regular basis.

The tennis court at our Signature Pointe apartment community in Kent is a great place to practice and challenge friends or family to games. You’ll find your tennis skills improve considerably when you play and practice regularly.

If you get too hot out on the tennis court, there are plenty of ways to cool down near our Kent apartments with an outdoor pool. Taking a trip down to the community pool is a great way to beat the heat this season. Before you do, make sure to consider these sun and water safety tips.

When swimming, always make sure there is another person present. Cramps or other things can happen while taking a swim, and having someone else nearby assures that we are being watched in some way while we swim.

To protect against the rays of the sun, wear sunscreen. An SPF of at least 15 is important with sunscreen, as well as a lotion that includes both UVA and UVB protection. Apply your sunscreen every two hours, and be more frequent if you are engaging in any activities that wet your skin or cause you to sweat. 

Wear loose clothing. Tight clothes can stick to the skin, heating up our bodies and causing dehydration without us even realizing. Stay hydrated, and keep cool by wearing clothes that are comfortably loose.
