Whether you are going through a divorce or just looking for a change of pace in your life, moving to get the fresh start you are seeking can be an excellent and life-changing decision.
Become Who You Want
If you have been stuck in a life that does not match your expectations 100%, moving may be able to give you the freedom to change your perspective and become who you want. Many people question this motive, finding that moving is simply escaping existing problems; however, studies have proven that in fact moving can give individuals new mental freedom that cannot come from staying in their current home. Transitioning to a new space allows you to see the world in a different light – and often, create a lifestyle that fits your wants.
Get A Clean Break
If you have recently experienced a break-up or even a divorce, then moving can give you the fresh start you need to get your life back on track. You may feel lost, especially if you had been with your significant other for an extended period of time. The neighborhood may remind you of your time together, bringing up both positive and negative emotions. Creating a new life in a home where you had a life with an ex-partner can be extremely challenging – therefore, moving to a new home can bring about an opportunity to not only redecorate but also to find yourself and discover who you are outside of that old relationship.
When you stay in the same home for an extended period of time life can become simple, filled with the same people and the same routines. You learn the ins and out of the neighborhood and how to exist with ease. Although this may sound appealing to some, to others it creates a sense of dissatisfaction with life – it makes individuals feel stuck. Moving to create challenges can be a healthy decision, forcing you to meet new people and try new things. Not only can this reduce your feelings of complacency but it can actually improve your mental health and increase overall happiness.
Escape A Bad Situation
Life is full of unexpected surprises and often it is hard to find solutions to those problems. For example, if your child’s school district is not challenging them to their full potential, or if you have a dispute with a neighbor that cannot seem to get resolved. Unfortunately, these situations happen and sometimes staying in your present home only intensifies the problem. If this has happened to you, you may want to consider moving for a fresh start – say, to get your child into that new program that helps them grow or allows you to escape the persistent neighborly dispute. Moving to escape does not admit defeat, but instead represents courage as it is difficult to admit you need a new start and even more difficult to take that leap.
Expand Your Relationships
If you find yourself living in a neighborhood that lacks community interaction, you may be experiencing a sense of loneliness. Since the 1990’s there has been a reduction in the amount of interaction Americans have with their neighbors. In fact, many Americans report that they do not even know their neighbors. This can reduce one’s satisfaction with their living situation – If you are living alone it may enhance the feeling of isolation; if you have a family it may create challenges in meeting people for weekend activities. Therefore, moving to a neighborhood that is focused on community events and interactions can assist you in expanding relationships and getting a fresh start to a new life.
Taking the Leap!
It is estimated that in 2018 only 11% of Americans moved. Although you may be thinking that this is because Americans are happy in their home, it is actually due to the fact that people avoid moving at all costs – it is time consuming, can be expensive, and creates unwanted stress. However, for those that do take the leap and start fresh in a new home, they often report an increase in happiness and satisfaction in life.
