Slow Living: Living in a Country Club is to enjoy the simple things in life and living peacefully

Slow living is the art of living life to the fullest. And living at Belas Club de Campo means adopting a more conscious, peaceful and quality lifestyle.

In a world moving at the speed of light, knowing how to slow down is increasingly important. We are constantly living in a loop, where time seems to fly without us noticing.

From this need to slow down comes slow living: the art of living life to the fullest, enjoying every moment and doing what fulfils us, without rushing.

From autopilot mode to slow living mode

Slow Movement Portugal defines slow living as a movement that promotes a more balanced lifestyle suitable for well-being. It is characterised as a way of life where there is time and space for personal development, extending to the areas of health, education, balancing professional and personal life, leisure, life in cities and in the community, contact with nature, among others.

But how can it be applied to our daily lives? Here are some suggestions:

  1. Stay active
    Slow living does not represent a stationary lifestyle, but rather doing what we enjoy most in a conscious and peaceful way.
    Staying active through a sport, whether it’s more radical or more relaxing, such as meditation, will promote your physical and mental health. You will be dedicating some quality time to yourself or even to your family if you choose a group activity.
  2. Take advantage of all the surrounding nature
    Enjoy all the surrounding nature and go for regular walks. When walking in nature we are infected by its calm and serenity, which translates into great results in our daily lives.
  3. Disconnect
    After a long day at work, try to disconnect. Get into the habit of setting aside your phone and computer. This way, you’ll make time for what really matters.
  4. Reorganize your home
    A home should be organised just as we want it to feel and live, not as it should look like. This is because the environment that surrounds us greatly influences our physical and, above all, mental well-being.
    Slow living is about being present at the right time, with the right people, in the right place. And since the best place to start practicing slow living is at home, living at a country club may be just what you need.

Belas Clube de Campo is a Country Club that invites you to a slow lifestyle. Here, nature takes centre stage, the houses are designed to provide maximum comfort and well-being for families and where services and numerous sports activities allow you to live life with quality.

How is this lifestyle promoted at the Country Club?

Wellness & Sports

From the Health Club to the tennis and padel tennis courts, golf, trails and the spa, there are many ideal options for spending quality time alone or with your family.

Contact with Nature
As we mentioned, in the philosophy of slow living, contact with nature is crucial to live in balance. Therefore, at Belas Clube do Campo this contact is promoted through outdoor walks in the countless green spaces, bicycle paths and trails through the Carregueira Mountain Forest Park,where the Club is located.

Healthy Food
Did you know that slow living originated from the slow food movement? This concept took its first steps in Italy, in the 80s, where fast food settled a little all over the world. This philosophy comes, thus, to promote healthier food, based on organic ingredients, natural flavours, local and seasonal.
The Clubhouse Restaurant also allows you to work on this aspect of your life. In addition to the diversified menu on offer, it is a space where you can calmly enjoy a family lunch or a snack. Whether in the indoor room, on the balcony or on the terrace overlooking the golf course.
