Got cabin fever? Here are 3 reasons you need to move – now!

Sitting around your apartment with no real inspiration to clean up or be productive? Don’t really feel like going to the same bar with the same friends for the same drinks anymore? Are you really feeling the pinch of your neighbourhood and can’t wait until you can find something new?

Maybe it’s a good time to think about moving! Moving is a huge step, but if you’re not happy where you’re currently living, you should always consider it. Your life is yours to live, after all, so why not feel great about where you are?

You’ve finished school but you’re still in a University town

Moving across the country to go to school is a time-honoured way of getting away from your parents and your childhood. It is also a great way to earn independence for the first time. What happens when you’re out, though? Once you graduate, do you really want to be stuck in the same place you lived for the past five years or so? A change of scenery can really drive home the fact that you’ve made it – you’ve graduated! Why not go somewhere new for the next chapter of your life?

You’ve been in your current place too long

Maybe you’ve been living in the same apartment for so long you’re going a bit stir crazy. It’s been years and your neighbours won’t stop annoying you and the landlord is terrible. There’s a heck of a lot of noise in your neighbourhood and the dog from across the street just won’t shut up. Sure, it’s a big pain to move, but why not try going somewhere you will be much happier? It’s never too late to find the apartment of your dreams in a place you really love!

It’s been hard to make friends

Sure, you hang out at the local bar on weekends and see the same faces. You say hi to people you recognize at the grocery store and the cafe down the street. But it’s been hard to really connect with the people you see day-to-day. Maybe there’s just something going on that’s trying to tell you, you don’t belong here! Toronto has such a massive diversity of neighbourhoods, it might be time to try something different. You might just encounter friendlier people, cooler cafes, great weekend markets and an atmosphere that totally jibes with you.

Erin Cardone

Born on the Prairies, Erin Cardone grew up knowing there was more to life than canola fields and AAA Alberta Angus. So she escaped, living in Europe and Australia, white-knuckling it through plates of calf brains and raw horse meat, and learning languages she can't remember anymore. After a stint as a jaded, skeptical journalist, she changed tack and began writing rather awesome blogs and showing businesses that advertising is dead, so long live social media, with her businesses Legendary Social Media. She now splits her time between various Canadian cities, Costa Rica and wherever else the wind blows.
