Moving is not an easy decision. We can simplify it as much as we want and we can try to rationalize it, but when it comes down to it, the fact remains – moving is pretty tough. At least, psychologically speaking. Sure, you can get to a new place, but even if that is the best decision, you may still feel overly stressed. Or you may stay at your current one, and wonder whether or not you are making the right choice.
In order to help you with all that, we want to tell you some signs when the time to move is clearly obvious. If you fall into any of the categories below, you better start packing your items in some nice plastic moving boxes!
It’s All About The Job!
Since we spent at least 8 hours of our day at our job and another 6 to 8 hours sleeping, it makes sense that these things should someone be related. And they are! Because for all intents and purposes where you live plays a major role in your work.
If you have to travel 2 hours a day just to get to your job that is at least 4 hours of wasted time. But, okay, we hear you – 2 hours are way too much. What about 2 hours altogether? One in each direction seems fair. And that is exactly what quite a lot of people are doing. Well, this still accounts for 2 hours lost in commuting. Not great, right? If you can cut that to just 1 hour, won’t you be better off? So that’s the first sign you need to move!
Too Big, Too Small
Size matters! Especially apartment size. One of the major reasons people move is because their place feels inadequate in size. Sure, in the beginning you fell in love with it. But then some things started bugging you. Wouldn’t it be great if you had a little bit more space? Or maybe it would be nice to have a cozier place which you don’t have to clean for 5 hours each week.
This should be considered quite a major factor when it comes to moving. Because let’s be honest – life is too short to settle for things that bug us. And as we have already mentioned, we spend at least a third of each day in our home. Do you want a third of your day to bug you out so much? We don’t think so.
Money Doesn’t Grow On Trees
We get older and hopefully we get wiser. But with that wisdom often comes hurtful realizations. Maybe you are spending way too much of your paycheck to cover your rent. Is it so? It turns out that is the case with many people. In the beginning, where you don’t have that much expenses, everything may seem alright. But then when time passes and you get ideas to start saving and cutting your expenses, all of a sudden your rent seems a bit too steep for your liking. Well, you know what to do – move!
