Are you thinking about moving home this year? You might want to consider moving to the countryside, away from the city. There are lots of benefits to this decision, and it could be the perfect option if you are starting to think about settling down and forgetting about your busy lifestyle. If you are beginning to wind down and slip into a routine, this could be the right move.
Peace And Quiet
There’s no doubt about it, if you move to the countryside, you’ll find that it’s far more peaceful and serene than you are accustomed to. This can be grating for some people at first and a little daunting. Particularly, if you’re using to the constant buzz of traffic. But if you’re tired of the noisy hustle and bustle of the city you’ll love this, and it’s not just the noise. The lights disappear in the countryside too. At night, if you buy a secluded home, it can be pitch black. Again, this can be a little uncomfortable at first, but you’ll love it when you get the best night of sleep you have had in years.
The problem with living in the city is that you’re packed in. if you’ve ever lived in a block of apartments, you’ll know how claustrophobic it can feel. If you live in a center apartment you’ll have one person above you, underneath and at least two next to you. As such, you never have space to breathe. That’s not the case in the countryside. The houses are built far enough apart that you’ll never hear your neighbors, even in the middle of the village. When you look at homes for sale, you’ll see just how to spread out they are. But don’t worry, they are still close enough that you can enjoy a shared sense of community spirit.
This is a great benefit if you are starting a family. Your kids will have space to play where you will feel assured that they are safe.
Perfect For Pets
If you’re an animal lover, the country is the best place for you to be. There is plenty of space for them to roam and if you have a dog, lots of possibilities for long walks. In the city, there are rules about always keeping your dog on a lead. You won’t find that in the country. Usually, they are free to roam as long as they are well trained, particularly on long walks.
Research has shown that living in the country actually reduces levels of stress. The only problem is the commute, but these days that’s not so much of a problem. Many suburbs now have great transport routes to get you exactly where you need to be for work during the day. As such, you can easily escape the hustle and bustle of the city through the week and enjoy your weekend, relaxing in private.
