What makes you want to move out of state?

Are you thinking about moving out of state, but just can’t make up your mind? Check out these 7 benefits of moving out of state to help you know if moving to a new state is the right choice for you!

  1. Independence. Moving out of state is a great way to learn how to take care of yourself and gain independence. You’ll be on your own when it comes to things like buying groceries, doing your own laundry, cleaning up, and paying the bills. 
  2. New things. A new city means new things. New foods to try. New things to do and see. Who knows, you may even discover a hobby you never knew existed. For instance, if you live in the mountains, you may not discover that you’re an all-star surfer until you move to the beach!
  3. New friends. This is a BIG benefit of moving out of state. While you may miss your friends at your old home, making new friends can be exciting! You can meet people through organizations, clubs, church, work, or just by striking up a conversation at the park. Here’s a helpful article on how to make new friends in a new city.
  4. Challenges. Moving to a new state can be hard. At first, seeing the benefits of living somewhere new might be cloudy. But if it’s the right place for you, it won’t take long to overcome those challenges and see clearly why moving out of state was such a good idea.
  5. Blank slate. If you like the idea of starting over, moving to a new state is a great place to start. Just remember to be yourself!
  6. Culture. As you know, the culture of the Deep South differs from the culture you’ll find in the Middle Atlantic States. Be sure to research your new city. You’ll become a better-rounded person if you are open to living in a different culture than what you’re accustomed to.
  7. You can do it again. If you don’t like your new state, you can always move again. That’s another great benefit of moving – you don’t have to be stuck in one place forever!
