We all know the pull of a dream destination — a place in the world where you feel you could live your best life, whether that’s the beach, the mountains, the desert, or another country altogether. Now’s the time to consider your dream relocation.
As the pandemic upended our lives in so many ways, there are a few positive developments that have potentially changed our lifestyles decidedly for the better. A recent study by online moving resource platform MyMove revealed that almost 16 million people relocated during the pandemic, a 4 percent increase over the previous year, with smaller cities and suburbs in more temperate climates and scenic locales gaining an edge over big urban areas.
We now live in a time where relocating to the destination of our dreams is more in reach than ever before thanks to the advancement of virtual workplaces, remote learning and increased ease of interconnectedness (hello FaceTime chats and Zoom happy hours!).
Why not consider relocating to an area that inspires, enhances your health and wellbeing and allows you to live the life you’ve always desired?
Get a Plan in Place for Moving to Your Ideal Space
The idea of picking up and moving to Hawaii or Montana or St. Barts or France may seem daunting, it’s true. Getting a rock-solid plan in place will help make the seemingly impossible suddenly seem doable. Start with having a heart-to-heart with your families and closest friends to get their input and ideas on staying connected — chances are, they’ll be excited to have an appealing place to visit easily and often!
Next, talk to your boss about working remotely. As mentioned, with the rise and popularity of virtual offices, your company may be surprisingly open to your plans (it’s always beneficial to keep current staff happy, after all). If they are less than enthusiastic, now’s the time to start a strategic job search, whether local to your destination or with another company that is amenable to a virtual workforce. Consider speaking with a recruiter who specializes in relocation.
Next, if you have school-age children, research remote learning opportunities. This is the golden era of flexible, online schooling that allows for a more personalized and expansive lifestyle for you and your kids.
