All humans are living breathing creatures with emotions. Most of the time it’s because of these emotions that makes us want to move from one place to another. You may be very comfortable with your current living standards, but as we transition from one stage of life to another, our lives might change completely.
If any of these sounds like you, you should consider changing your scenery.
1. You find any excuse to complain about where you live.
Do you find that every little thing about where you live seems to get under your skin lately? When you're tired of something, it's typical to poke holes in it and find reasons for your change in opinion.
If you notice that everything about your chosen city really bothers you, it may be time to analyse why that is and see if there's somewhere else out there that's a better fit.
2. You feel trapped in your routine.
When you wake up in the morning do you know exactly how your day is going to go? Does it almost feel like you're living the same day over and over, without much — if any — differentiation?
Doing the same thing day in and day out can lead to you feeling trapped in your own life. Without flexibility and change, you are unable to explore new avenues or ideas. Moving to a new city is a great way to add spontaneity to your life and break out of your routine.
3.There's little opportunity for growth where you are.
Whether it's career or self-growth, living somewhere that supports your advancement as a person is extremely important. If you realize that your current city is making you stagnant, it may be time to make a change.
4.You feel lonely where you are.
If you love where you live, but you don't have a lot of friends, it's good to try to stick it out and meet new people. Otherwise, if you feel isolated and lonely, moving to a new place can give you that fresh start you've been dreaming about.
Maybe you live in a small city right now, contributing to this feeling of isolation. Moving to a bigger city may help to remedy those feelings.
5.You have nothing tying you to where you currently are.
Maybe you just left your job or got out of a serious relationship. In any case, factors that used to connect you to a place can change and, when they do, it's a perfect opportunity to try something new.
Figure out if you were living in a certain city because you actually liked it or because you had something tying you down and then decide whether or not to move from there.
6.Your gut says it's time to move.
When it comes to big decisions, the most important thing to listen to is your inner voice. If your gut is telling you that it's time to try something new, listen to it. While it's scary to trust your instincts — especially if your current situation seems fine — believing in yourself can lead to the most amazing opportunities.
It’s not wrong to stay in your comfort zone, but as you progress in life, your demands from life will change and this may push you out of your zone. Be brave and step out of that zone, consider moving to somewhere new to give yourself a new perspective. Who knows, it may be just the best decision you will make.
