Moving to a difficult neighbourhood can be a big decision to make. You may have grown up there, have all your friends, family or even career there. But sometimes, it can be incredibly important to do so, for your own health and wellbeing.
There are many reasons as to why you may wish to move neighbourhoods, some more common than others, and here are a number of the biggest reasons as to why you may wish to move on to pastures new…
Getting in with the wrong crowd
One of the main reasons as to why people feel like they want to move neighbourhoods is when being there may have led to getting in with the wrong crowd. Some neighbourhoods are rife with drugs and alcohol and that can have a serious impact on your health.
It can often escalate, drinking and taking drugs regularly, to the point where drug and alcohol rehab is the only option for people, and then returning to that neighbourhood feels like a risky move, increasing the risk of relapse.
The wrong crowd can be really damaging within a neighbourhood, upping the risk of the likes of addiction, crime and not fulfilling your potential.
Starting a family
Naturally, some neighbourhoods are much more suited to beginning a family than others, and there are a number of features you should look for in one to benefit your children, from good schools to plenty of green space.
Many people want to raise their children away from the city, for example, so it may require moving from an inner city space to the suburbs. Similarly, it may be that you don’t want to subject your child to an unsafe neighbourhood so need to move for the reason mentioned above too.
Careers are perhaps the biggest reason for moving neighbourhoods, as well as many knock on effects of that. How we earn our money has a huge say on where we live, with salary dictating the type of property that you can live in, while there needs to be elements of convenience too.
The neighbourhood you are living in, might not have the transport connections for where you wish to work, for example, or the commute may be too far for you so finding somewhere closer to work can be much better for your overall health, never mind cutting costs on fuel or public transport.
Ultimately, moving neighbourhoods all comes down to changing your life for the better, and for whatever reason that may be, if you believe it’ll have a positive impact on you, then it’s always worth considering.
