Have you ever wished you were someone else? Do you constantly look for ways to improve yourself? Selling your house and moving to a new home can actually help you become the person you want to be, even if that new home is in the same area.
1. Move States
Moving can change your personality. Studies show that character traits actually vary from state to state. In a research paper in the Journal of Research in Personality’s February issue, a study was conducted that described state-based differences in attitudes about romantic relationships. This research paper found that citizens of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic are on average more anxious in their romantic relationships than those on the West Coast. In fact, Utah was found to be the least anxious.
There are many more studies like this one. Some show that Northeasterners and Southeasterners are more neurotic than westerners, and others say that Southeasterners, Mid-Westerners, and Utahans are more agreeable than other Americans.
Jason Rentfrow, a psychologist at the University of Cambridge, believes these regional attitudes develop from migration patterns, ecology, and social influences. These factors indicate that where you move could change how you act in your everyday life. Living somewhere warmer might cause you to go outdoors more and being in a more social driven area might cause you to be more extroverted. If you need a big lifestyle change moving to a new state might be the answer for you.
However, not all of us are ready to pick up and leave the state. Changing your lifestyle by moving doesn’t have to be that drastic.
2. Get More Space
You can easily change your lifestyle by purchasing a house with more space. Buying a house with a larger yard would allow your kids to have a free place to play and buying a house with a larger dining or living room would allow you to entertain more people.
3. Shape Up
If you’ve always wanted to get in shape, but don’t have the motivation to go to the gym you could buy a house with a home gym. You won’t have to pay membership fees or share the equipment.
4. Free Up Your Time
Moving closer to where you work will give you back the time you spend driving. This free time could be spent with your kids or working on your hobbies. Moving closer to where you work could also be helpful if you’re starting your own business and need to be available to assist others.
5. Settle Down
Maybe you were a big-time partier and went to clubs every night, but now you’re over it. Then moving to a suburb and somewhere a little quieter might be the right move for you and vice versa.
Sometimes the dissatisfaction we feel has nothing to do with us and everything to do with location.
