Living in the city comes with many advantages, but it goes without saying that it can become tiresome.

City life is chaotic, hectic, and can stress people out if they aren’t prepared. It’s an entirely different lifestyle from living in the country, but there are a couple of advantages to living closer to nature.

 

Why would people want to move out of the city?

The city offers many conveniences. Deliveries are faster, public transport is abundant and there is plenty of entertainment on offer. It’s a fascinating place, especially for someone that has lived on the outskirts of a town most of their lives.

There are plenty shops, parks and even concerts to go to. However, there are times when you just want to get away from the hustle and bustle and get closer to nature.

Remote locations offer plenty of advantages. For starters, there’s less air and noise pollution which means you’ll feel less stressed out hearing car engines and sirens all day. The air is clean and crisp which results in better health, and it encourages you to get out and exercise and walk more instead of driving your car.

There is plenty of entertainment if you look for it as well. From hiking to fishing or even camping with your family, the great outdoors offers some wonderful advantages that can be experienced on a holiday as a taster.

Remote locations also make great retirement homes. They are perfect for enjoying the simple pleasures in life, and if you learn to live with fewer luxuries then it can open up many new ways of living that you previously found difficult or impossible by living in the city.

Requirements to live away from the city:

There are two main concerns: your income and your home. Finding mountain homes for sale is as easy as looking on the internet, but you could also pick seaside homes too. It all depends on where you want to live, so make sure you do plenty of research in order to find your ideal home.

Next, your income. Unless you can find someplace to work near your desired location, it’s actually possible to live as a freelancer. Freelancers have the freedom to work their own hours and they can do it by just using an internet connection, something which is becoming increasingly more accessible in remote locations away from cities.

There are many freelancing opportunities available and they’re all profitable ways of earning a living from your home.

These are just some of the basic requirements. If you have family or plan to have a family, you’ll want to ensure that there are local schools and amenities to help your children grow and live fulfilling young lives.

Cities offer many conveniences, but the suburbs and rural areas are nice places too. It depends on your desires, your family situation, your career, and your finances on which is best for you.
