The Perks of a Long-Distance Move

 Sometimes a long-distance move is something we want, and other times it is something we have to do. Either way, there are a lot of perks to taking yourself away from where you are and going somewhere you may have never been. 

Of course, when you have a family to consider, it does get a little bit more complicated - but that doesn’t take away from all the fun possibilities!

Family Bond

Depending on the age of your children, moving long-distance can be tricky. Older children have friends, social groups, and a routine that they might quite like. But younger children are often quite happy to go with the flow. 

After some long conversations, if you decide that a big move is the way to go - all of the new experiences you have will be something you all go through, and it can be a bonding experience. 

Personal Growth

As much as you want to be the best parent you can be, there are times when it is a good idea to put your own personal growth first! Sometimes, if we are living where we grew up, there seems to be less room to grow as an individual. 

Often people keep us pigeonholed by how we were as a teen when we don’t leave that same place. Putting yourself in a new place may allow you to explore yourself a bit more and find out who you really are. 


Long distance moving can sometimes be a byproduct of the need or want to increase career prospects - or because your current role (or your partners) have demanded it. Sometimes these moves are more complicated because they might not be something you had considered until now. But, in new places with new opportunities, you never know what might be an option. 

Fresh Start

Perhaps one of the best things about moving long distances is that you have the chance at a fresh start. It doesn’t matter to other people what has happened in the past - because they won’t know it unless you tell them. You can start over and build the life that you want to live. 

Old habits, people, and things that you don’t want with you anymore can all be left behind with a long-distance move. 


Even if you stay in the same country, every state, city, and town will have its own way of doing things. And, if you decide to move even further afield, you might get an even deeper dive into new cultures. Learning about new cultures is great for our global understanding and one of the most important ways we can grow as a human - and if we take children with us too, they start their growth earlier on! 

Moving long-distance can open up a lot of great opportunities and perhaps change your life in all the best ways. Although big moves come with a lot of moving parts, they can be the best thing that you ever do.
