Call out business centers and clubrooms as a great place for a change of scenery for residents who work from home. Or the walking trails as a great place to take your workout outdoors. Catch up on your email from a poolside lounger (if you have WiFi). Short on evening time? Combine your fresh air fix, brisk walk, and healthy dinner by walking to a nearby restaurant.
