Alexa helps with New Year’s resolutions

Ah, those famous New Year’s resolutions: easily made, but not so easily kept! We had every intention of exercising zealously, eating healthier, prioritizing family together time, and more—but as 2019 ticks on, our once-ironclad resolve loses its oomph. We need a buddy to keep us accountable, somebody who can bring excitement to our resolutions, and help make them happen… That somebody, like a magical Mary Poppins wired into Lennar’s new homes, is none other than the helpful and efficient Alexa!

Residents of Cascata at MiraLago, The Edge on 15th, and Magnolia Trails—three beautiful Lennar communities in Broward County—know first-hand the benefits of having Smart Home Technology with activation and support by Amazon and voice control by Alexa. Daily life is enhanced and simplified by technology that can do everything from providing a delicious recipe to suggesting games the whole family will enjoy.

Going back to New Year’s resolutions, was exercising on your list? Alexa can provide quick 7-minute workouts and even remind you when its time to pull out your exercise mat! At Cascata at MiraLago in Parkland, a state-of-the-art gym, aerobic center, lap pool, and sauna will nicely complement your routine with Alexa.

Alexa can also schedule regular family outings to your sparkling pool—which all three of Lennar’s Broward communities feature. Splashing around with the kids and playing Marco Polo may not feel like the arduous work many associate with exercise, but you’re getting your heart pumping and doing your body good, while also spending quality family time—possibly another of your New Year’s resolutions! Speaking of combining family togetherness with exercise, at Magnolia Trails, a lovely townhome community in Davie, residents may wish to ask Alexa for a list of nearby ranches where they can discover horseback riding. This wonderful activity may just become your family’s new favorite!

If eating healthier is on your radar for 2019, Alexa is a great resource and ally. She can help you find top-rated recipes that give you all the yummy taste, minus the bad stuff. For example, she can teach you how to thicken a sauce with cooked, blended vegetables, instead of a traditional high-fat roux. Or make irresistibly moist and tender brownies with beets. The children will never suspect that you’re sneaking them veggies—and Alexa is good at keeping secrets!

Not only will Alexa make cooking extra fun, you’re sure to enjoy spending time in your handsome, well equipped kitchen. Featuring quality stainless steel appliances, ample countertops—and often islands—as well as attractive cabinets, Lennar kitchens invariably inspire home chefs. Even residents of the Edge on 15th, an urban Fort Lauderdale community, will prefer to show off their culinary talents at home, rather than go to one of the area’s many world-class restaurants!

Another frequent resolution involves finding ways to increase productivity. Multi-tasking is a snap with Alexa at your side! She’ll schedule meetings and appointments for you, check credit card balances, bring you breaking news, or read an audiobook as you prep for dinner and straighten your home. On the other end of the spectrum, should you be committed to finding ways to relax, Alexa can give you tips for meditating, and play soothing sounds, as well as podcasts conducive to feeling centered and peaceful.

Whatever your resolutions for 2019, we’re pretty sure that Alexa can help you succeed. In just a few short months you’ll be reaping the rewards of a smart lifestyle, and probably wondering how you ever managed without this advanced home technology! From every point of view, life is simply better in a Lennar home. Thank you, Alexa!
