It seems to come about around the time that people decide they are going to retire; they get that desire to move to a warmer climate, if they live in a colder one anyway. They have many reasons for moving, sometimes it’s just the adventure of the change in scenery. Maybe they simply want to move someplace with more people their own age, or someplace that is more laid back than where they currently reside.
Old or young, here are a few great reasons to consider moving to a warmer climate. You know, someplace that is warm more of the year than it is not, like Florida or California.
Beaches And Sunshine
OK, this is probably the best reason to move to a state like Florida – it’s almost always warm and sunny. Yes, they have bad weather, but it’s not often that it gets below zero or that snow falls and sticks around. If you enjoy the spring and summer months, and detest winter, then a warmer climate is definitely the right place for you to be.
You can enjoy the sunshine, spend more time outdoors, and spend all the time you can stand on the beach. You could get a job as a surfing instructor, captain a fishing boat, or do any other number of fun and creative outdoor jobs. Or, if you’re retired, you can just enjoy peaceful walks on the beach.
Rest Your Aching Bones
If you find that winter brings on more aches and pains then you may prefer to live somewhere less cold. People that suffer from things like arthritis know for a fact that cold weather can bring about great pain. Instead of spending all your time cranking the heater or using a heating pad, you could spend more time in natural warmth, and in less pain.
Of course, for some people the humidity can also factor into their pain. Florida is pretty humid, so a warmer state out west may be the better option for you if you find you have a problem with this. It’s not something that affects everyone, though.
However, the humidity in Florida may mess with you if you suffer from allergies. Allergy sufferers that want to live in a warmer climate may want to move to a place like California or Arizona. The dry heat might do wonders for you, although you’ll need to live there a little while to feel it’s effects.
Of course, this also depends on your allergies. For someone allergic to flowers and grass moving to the desert is a good answer. However, if you’re allergic to dust or just have general year round allergies it won’t matter where you live!
