What is Relocation Therapy?
Relocation therapy is one of the solutions recommended by physicians when patients experience roadblocks in their lives. Roadblocks may consist of a loss of a spouse or loved one, loss of a job, a midlife crisis, or a divorce. These roadblocks can cause a significant impediment in people and may require relocation to fully heal. Here are some benefits of relocation therapy.
Change of Scenery
Moving to a new state, like New York, can offer a change of scenery. There is so much to see and do in New York City that it is easy to forget all of your troubles. If you’re into shopping, museums, coffee shops, or amusement parks, New York has it all, and you can spend your days full of participating in fun events with different types of people.
New Networking Opportunities
There are new, untapped networking opportunities in new cities. When you go to new cities like New York, you can start over meeting people who can accept you without passing judgment on your previous position. This is especially important for a person who is changing careers. Sometimes a fresh start can help a person become re-energized, and this will bring about new job opportunities.
NY real estate is expensive, but the neighborhoods are easy to get around, and the communities are supportive. NY real estate agents can help people find new homes near like-minded people who they can meet at coffee shops at the spur of the moment. When you are in a new home, you will make new memories with new people, and you won’t have as many memories of your deceased spouse or a spouse you have divorced.
Try Relocating to Make Life Easier
Many past studies show that moving is one of the single most stressful events, but new studies show that relocating can actually make it easier to cope with life’s changes after the patient is settled. New furniture, new home, and new friends can make life easier. Experts do recommend waiting one year after a major loss to make a move to ensure it is the best decision. Other than the waiting period, the only other major issue is finances. When your move fits your budget, you are ready to go.
