Sometimes, you just want – or even need – to make a real change in your life, and to take things in a completely different direction to the one you have been heading in.

There are a lot of different things that people do in order to try and transform their lives in one way or another, ranging from joining clubs, taking up particular hobbies, looking for “accountability buddies,” and much more.

In many cases, however, the most impactful life changes come from decisive action that involves significantly restructuring your physical environment – or even moving somewhere else altogether.

Calling up the international removal experts and planning a move to a distant locale is at once daunting and exhilarating. It offers the possibility of real change.

Here are a few ways that changing your location can change your life.

By helping to break old habits

Our habits are very often tied to our physical surroundings, in a variety of different ways. Changing your location can help.

People who are recovering from addiction, for example, are often instructed to avoid their old hangouts and social circles, so that the behaviours they are trying to get away from are not “triggered” again.

Moving to a new location – especially one that gets you far away from your old habit triggers and their associated contexts – can be a tremendous help in breaking old habits that you want to cancel out, and allowing you to begin reinventing yourself without the same degree of inner turmoil and uncertainty.

By giving you a sense of starting again with a blank page

The reason why New Year’s resolutions are so popular is that the idea of “starting again” with a blank page is something that we all fundamentally identify with on a deep psychological level.

Some people are quite critical of New Year’s resolutions and feel that one day should be as good as any other for making a particular change. But this overlooks the symbolic and psychological weight of particular rituals such as entering a new year.

Moving to a new location is perhaps one of the most powerful ways of activating the sense of having a “blank page” to work with.

By opening up new opportunities that might have been missing before

The simple pragmatic reality is that not all locations offer the same opportunities, either in terms of job and career availability, or in terms of public infrastructure, social connections, or any number of other things.

If you find it very difficult to live your life in the way you want to in the particular location you currently inhabit, it might be that moving to a different location could furnish you with a whole range of new opportunities that were missing before, and which you can then proactively take advantage of.
Maybe you want to be an artist, for example, but there are no classes, art galleries, etc, anywhere near where you currently live. In a case like this, moving to a different location can have a real impact.

Is changing your location what you need? Why not give it some thought.
