A RELAXING LIFE AMIDST NATURE
Wind down every day at home in Seremban 2
Picture yourself at work facing the computer, feeling cold and counting the hours until you can leave the office, just to get stuck in a massive traffic on your way home. Many Malaysians choose to live in the city for a multitude of reasons – work, opportunities and being the centre of it all. While living in a modern concrete jungle does have its upsides, with it also comes stress and an unbalanced lifestyle.
Now imagine commuting with ease back home where nature awaits. Upon reaching the town, which is strategically located in Seremban 2, you admire the lush greenery that lines up both sides of the road as you are driving – they remind you that home is near and dear. A short distance more and you’ll reunite with your beloved family after a long day’s work to bond and relax.
A natural environment serves many irreplaceable roles in maintaining a balanced ecosystem that, in many ways, benefits our overall well-being, and Seremban 2 understands this very well. Being surrounded by nature makes us feel relaxed and safe. When choosing getaway destinations, most of us would look for quiet, peace and a blissful natural environment. This is because spending time in the natural outdoors has been scientifically proven to reduce stress levels, rejuvenate our minds and reenergise our bodies.
“The 1537 ha of land that is now called Seremban 2 has a rich natural history which started as a fertile agricultural plot but with little investment value. After being bought over by IJM Land, we knew that its natural roots are what make it special, and we wanted to keep it that way. Hence, we devised a development plan to keep the area as close to nature as possible while providing people with more viable options for homes and investments,” said Dato’ Hoo Kim See, Senior General Manager (Central Region) of IJM LAND.
One of the reasons why Seremban 2 has become such a thriving township in Negeri Sembilan is its strategic implementation that leverages on vast green spaces spread across the township, offering a peaceful and relaxing lifestyle with complete community friendly amenities and facilities that can help residents to wind down while enjoying the simpler benefits of nature.
The 45 acres of park space that extends across the township is one initiative by the developer to keep to their promise. Within the total dedicated park space, 15 acres are reserved for the S2 City Park which accommodates a variety of activities for residents such as kite-flying, playground fun, tai chi and other sports. With an abundance of greenery around, the availability of fresh air is sure to improve blood pressure and one’s sense of well-being. In the brain, the serotonin neurotransmitter is crucial in maintaining one’s mood, appetite and overall mental health. By spending time in the park and breathing fresh air, serotonin levels can be regulated which promotes happiness. Research has also shown that a common soil bacteria can act as a natural antidepressant while indirectly alleviating health issues such as heart disease and diabetes.
The rest of the park space is dedicated to the 30-acre Hill Park which is also known as the Dinosaur Park as it features intriguing dinosaur sculptures. More than just a park, it is a stimulating hang-out spot for families situated 400-feet above sea level that offers panoramic views of the entire Seremban 2 township. As the highest point of Seremban 2, Hill Park promises sufficient sunlight to make it an ideal location for residents to soak up Vitamin D which promotes calcium absorption and reduces risks of multiple conditions such as high blood pressure, heart diseases and more.
A healthy and happy lifestyle is also commonly attributed to consistent physical activities that stimulate our physical and mental health. For that, Seremban 2 features a 30-acre sports complex which provides an abundance of sports-related activities that encourage fitness. This complex features an Olympic-sized swimming pool and offers other facilities such as a hockey stadium and badminton courts that cater to endorphin-producing sports activities. Known as the brain’s feel-good neurotransmitter, pumped-up endorphin levels can make one feel relaxed and calm.
“The land of Seremban 2 is a nature’s wonder through and through, and IJM Land has always taken into consideration throughout the decades of city planning by prioritizing well-being and progressive lifestyle for our residents. Being in touch with the natural world has provided boundless advantages to a contented life. In celebrating our 25th anniversary this year, we will be reminded to continue our efforts in maintaining and developing Seremban 2 as a breath of fresh air in the property industry offering an escape from the daily hustle and bustle of a city life,” Dato’ Hoo added.
