5 Ways Moving Changes Your Life

Simplifying Lifestyle
By taking a smart strategy and thinning out your belongings before the move, you will be left with far fewer books, clothes, dishes, cookware, etc. And you’ll end up using and wearing everything that you own instead of having it filling up your house. This creates much more freedom in their lives because they feel less weighed down by their stuff.

Change In Personality
A recent study from researchers at Michigan State University and the University of Illinois found that personality is typically a change for those who move. The study found that moving to the Northeast can make people more anxious, and moving to the South and West can make people more laid back. The researchers found that people usually absorb the values and practices of those around them.

Might Be Short On Friends
If you move with a partner or your family, this is typically not an issue. But if you are completely alone in a new city, you might find loneliness and feelings of depression moving into your new place with you. The best antidote is discovering places you can go to meet new people. The internet is a fantastic place to find fun organizations for just about everything – sports, book clubs, biking, running, etc.

You Might Find A happier Outlook
You’ll be happy in your new place. If you keep a positive attitude, you’ll find yourself fitting in in time. Most people make a move because they want a change, and something about the new place makes them think it will support that change. Or they are moving for a new job that will help them grow in their career. Or they are moving to be with a special someone. Whatever the case, let time do its thing. After a period of getting adjusted, you may find yourself falling in love with your new location.

The Weather Will Change
In South Carolina, the weather is mostly sunny and warm but, it has a winter, although not as bad as the Northeast. Seasonal Effective Disorder (SAD) is a real affliction. In many cases, it means winter and cold months can bring you down. It should be noted when moving to a new location.
