What You Need to Know Before a Move to the Country

What You Need to Know Before a Move to the Country

Is city living getting you down? Do you want to live a simpler, quieter life in the country? It’s no surprise. People flood out of big cities every year and head towards the country. The air is cleaner, and the people are friendlier.

It’s a like a breath of fresh air, but there are things you should know about country living.

There are advantages and disadvantages to living in the country, the same as there is to living in the city. You need to think carefully about what you need at this point in your life. Here’s what I think you should know before making the move to the country.

Be Prepared to Feel Isolated

If you live in the middle of a big city, you’re probably used to constant noise and vibrancy surrounding you. So, when you move to the country, the quiet and the isolation can be a big relief. But after a while, that quiet can start to get to you, and you might find yourself learning for the noise of the city.

On the other hand, you might get used to it once you’ve settled in. There are practical implications of this isolation too. Make sure you use a moving company like Golan's Moving that operate over long distances. And you’re going to need a car, public transport in the country is often unreliable and infrequent.

The Cultural Life Isn’t the Same as in the City

One of the biggest things people tend to miss when they leave the city is the cultural and entertainment opportunities. When you’re in the middle of nowhere, you can’t just decide to go to the cinema or the theatre in an evening, that’s usually not an option.

This doesn’t have to be a huge problem if you come up with creative solutions though. A lot of rural communities organize their own entertainment by putting on plays and starting film clubs.

You’ll Find a Better Sense of Community

It’s a cliche, but it’s also true. People form much stronger and more cohesive communities in the country compared to the city. It’s very easy to feel more isolated in a big city than in the country. If you find a small village, most people will know each other.

Whereas in the city, you can live next door to someone and barely ever speak to them. This is a fact of life in the country. Some people find it great, and others might not like the idea of getting involved in the community.

It Could be the Best Decision You Ever Make

Moving from the city to the country is truly life changing, and for most people, life changes for the better not the worse. If you’re looking for a more relaxed environment in which to start a family, the country is an ideal place to move to. There are sacrifices to be made, but they’ll probably be worth making.

If you’re thinking about moving to the city, hopefully, these points will have given you something to think about!
