Posted by Judy Anne Cavey on Dec 19, 2011 in , , | No Comments

You’ve moved. Now what?

Each year, people relocate to find jobs or to go to college, only to discover being in a new location is unsettling.

Tips to help fight relocation blues:

1.) Since geography plays a role in weight gain, it’s a good idea to examine how the new location changes your routine. Maybe your old neighborhood was next to a park where you jogged every morning, but the new place has no park nearby. Time to find an alternative–one of the following–a gym or school track where you can jog. Seek out groups dedicated to jogging. This is a great way to make new contacts. Ask coworkers or classmates where they workout too.

Before you call the movers, there are many factors to take into consideration when relocating for a job opportunity.

Moving within your own state is costly and traumatic enough, but when you’re looking beyond the state line, even more needs to be weighed carefully.

Here are a few important items to think about before you make a move, the key is proper planning:

1.) Is the unemployment rate where you are now higher or lower than the area you are exploring? If it’s lower where you live, think twice about relocation. Be very cautious about figures. For example, the state unemployment rate might be much less than the county you are researching.
