How Moving Can Make You Healthier

moving-for-health

Are you the kind of person who seems to get sick all the time? Do you get colds, flu, sinus infections, headaches, hay-fever or asthma, or just feel off colour most of the time? If so, it may be time to move to another location. It doesn’t take that much effort to book removalists and shift all your worldly possessions to another place.

So why would moving improve your health? Often, people are allergic to their surroundings and don’t realise it. There could be a lot of dust or smog, pollen or some other thing you are allergic to in the air around you. Moving to another place can change that. But first, it’s a good idea to find out what your allergy is and make sure there is none of that in your new area.

Moving from a smoggy city to a place in the country or a smaller town where there is no smog can make a great deal of difference to your life.

It could be that you are just not suited to life in cold, damp conditions, if it’s like that where you live. Cold, moist air can make you sick, even if you keep well rugged up in warm clothing. You might have to stay inside the house with the heater on for months all winter. This is not a healthy lifestyle. Moving to a warmer, dryer climate can make you a lot healthier so you can actually enjoy life.  Cold, damp conditions also aggravate rheumatism and arthritis. Once you get to a warm climate you’ll be amazed at the difference as all those aches and pains subside.

You can get a lot more exercise when you live in a warm dry climate too; another thing that is good for your health. You could lose weight more easily because you’ll love being outside in the garden, going swimming and enjoying the fresh air and sunshine.

On the other hand, people who have really fair skin that burns easily might be healthier in a cooler climate where they don’t have to wear shorts or sleeveless tops to keep cool. Having their arms and legs covered will keep off the sun’s damaging UV rays and they won’t get sunburned at all.

When your climate suits you, there is less stress and aggravation, so you become happier and are not so likely to get the kind of diseases caused by stress. When you are happier, the rest of the family is also happier, so your whole life is likely to change for the better. It’s a good idea to do some research into the areas you think would suit you best. If possible, have a holiday there first to see if you truly like it. If you do, sell your home and make the move as quickly as possible.
