Are you tired of the endless sludge of traffic clogging up the roads in the city? Do you hate the hustle and bustle of the crowds, the heavy pollution and the constant noise and lights? Perhaps it’s time to move out of the city and even the suburbs into a rural area, far from the stresses of urban life. Research has shown that living in the countryside is actually better for you and will lead to a healthier lifestyle. But there are many benefits to living outside of the city that you might not even be aware of.
Peace And Quiet
It doesn’t take a genius to know that if you live away from the city, you’re going to get a lot more peace and quiet. You won’t have to worry about the constant blares of traffic. Even if you do live near the main road, you’re going to find it’s a lot more peaceful than a typical city street. In fact, if you have double or triple glazing, you probably won’t hear it at all.
Life Slows Down
You might not know this, but research has shown that psychologically life has actually sped up in recent years. Due to the increase in speed, it takes more out of us and gives us less enjoyment. The reason for this is that we are always in a rush to get somewhere and never where we want to be. That’s not true when you live in the countryside. Life slows down because you can take your time without being worried about getting stuck in traffic or rushing from one point to the next. It’s an easier life.
Build Your Home
If you live in a rural area, you don’t have to settle for a home that’s already built. Since there is plenty of space, you can actually building your own. According to BuildLogHomes, it’s actually remarkably simple to build a log cabin. So, you won’t have to worry about the expensive costs of a building company, and you can get the exact type of home that you want. The other benefit, of course, is that by building your home, you can choose exactly where you want to live. So, if you want to be completely secluded and cut off from the rest of the community you can. Or, you can build where there is already a growing development of home.
Better For Pets
If you have pets, you should definitely think about relocating to the countryside. Pets like dogs and cats love exercise, and they want to be free. Cats want to wander around by themselves and dogs want to be let off their lead occasionally. You can only do that if they have space to roam. Let cats out by themselves in the city, and there’s a good chance they will get run over or hurt. As for dogs, you might think you can let them roam in the park. But unfortunately, many city parks have strict rules on not letting a dog off its lead. In rural areas, you’ll have woodland and fields to explore with your pet.
We hope you see now why a home in the country might be exactly what you need.
