Moving is a significant life change. It is one of the most meaningful life changes one can undertake next to marriage and children. Moving shakes up your entire environment and can invite changes into your professional and personal life.
As with most life changes, it’s normal to be uncertain! Moving house is scary, and it’s common to wonder if it’s the right choice for you.
Keep reading to find out what the four telltale signs that you’re ready to move are!
You feel cramped in your current space.
Feeling congested in your living environment can be from a myriad of reasons:
- You’ve just had a baby: Whether it’s your first child or another addition, babies can take up space very quickly – in the best sense! Often, however, this means it’s time for a larger home.
- You’ve just gotten a new job: Remote work is at an all-time high in this day and age, and if you’ve been promoted or hired on at a new job, this means a dedicated workspace at home for many. Suddenly that one-bedroom apartment is feeling a bit stuffy! Additionally, remote work offers flexibility in ways most offices don’t. Why not try a new city?
Of course, you don’t need another life change in conjunction with moving to a bigger spot to justify it. Sometimes you simply feel cramped and want more breathing room. If it’s in your budget, why not? Life is too short.
You don’t feel socially connected to your current environment.
Many neighbourhoods and towns cater to families, commuters, or university students – to name a few.
It stands to reason that if you have a growing family, a neighbourhood best suited to students might not be for you.
You should find a sense of community where you live. It will help you make friends, build a support system, and generally improve your sense of well-being. If you aren’t socially compatible with your community, it can be a lonesome feeling!
Your goals have changed.
Successful career changes, going to school, starting a family, getting married (or finding a long-term partner), and a socially connected community are goals that many people all over the world aspire to achieve.
If you find your goals are starting to shift, it’s important to consider where you live. If you want to pursue a secondary education yet live in a rural area – it might be time to move to a town closer to your desired educational institution.
You just know it!
Whether it be a gut feeling, your little voice of reason, or Jiminy Cricket – if you feel in your very bones that it’s time to move on from your current residence, it’s worth pursuing!
Whether your goals have changed, your family is expanding, or you just don’t feel right where you live anymore, it’s probably time to move.
Depending on where you are looking to move, your next steps will be to look into either long-distance moving companies or local moving services.
