If there’s one thing these challenging times continue to instill in us, it’s to not take life for granted and to spend more time doing what we love. When was the last time you sat on your porch and chatted with a neighbor? When was the last time you played a game with your significant other after dinner? When was the last time you sat in your bathtub and read a book? If you don’t know the answer to these questions it sounds like you would make a great candidate to transition to maintenance-free living at The Cottages at Village Green in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin!

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average time spent working declined by 17 minutes per day from 2019 to 2020,  reflecting a decrease in the share of the population that was employed. The average time spent in leisure and sports activities increased by 32 minutes per day, from 5.0 hours in 2019 to 5.5 hours per day in 2020. Leisure time increased by an average of 37 minutes per day for men and 27 minutes for women. How does your living situation play into your leisure time?

“I have lived in Kenosha most of my life, and my family is in the area. I like the country feel of the Cottages at Village Green yet, I still feel close to the action. I felt very secure to move here because I didn’t want an apartment style condo and my entire checklist was fulfilled. It’s perfect for me and the camaraderie in the neighborhood is great,” shared Kathy Norris, Owner of the Second Unit Built at the Cottages at Village Green.
