The age-old question has plagued many, “Should I live in a city or should I live in the countryside?”. There are many advantages and disadvantages to choosing a lifestyle in either setting, and careful examination of all aspects is needed to make the perfect decision for you.
Switching lifestyle is never an easy option and as much as one loves to make a careful choice there are some factors that one can sometimes not avoid. Cash flow can be a problem when deciding where to live. Wellbeing, schooling, transport are one of the leading concerns that play a major role in decision making.
Countryside has always been an integral part of money making for any nation; their old infrastructure has benefited many residents. One can save a lot on accommodation while living in countryside since its expenses are lot lesser. In countryside pollution is scarce. No smog, you can see the stars unlike city where buildings and pollution blocks your view.
Countryside offers us much more land and space to live on, with green life around one can cherish and enjoy the life that’s he has been blessed with. Alternatively city is always packed with people all you can see are heads and buildings.
Social life in countryside living is an asset and keeps the energy going amongst people. Not only in times of need but also at weddings and any other event people reach out for each other. City life being so hectic and busy does not allow people time for much interaction which results in a very isolated lifestyle, people do meet but that is if they can spare sometime.
City life is very dynamic with many opportunities for job, to earn cash, to get entertained or for exchange of cultural values. Transportation is one of the biggest advantages one can have by living in a city, unlike the countryside where everyone has to rely on their own vehicle. You can visit museums, cinemas, discos, fun centers while living in a city and learn from various other sources the way of life. Countryside life has a back draw of limited learning resources.
Travelling and education is also one of the main issues of living in countryside. As much as we would like to admit the reality that in countryside the level of education is more feasible and effective due to lesser number of children in a classroom; the limitation of higher education in countryside is a factor that triggers the idea of living in a city. The advantages of living in the country definitely outweigh the advantages of living in the city and my vote also goes to the countryside living.
