One of the advantages of the coronavirus pandemic, is that many people have realised that they are able to continue to do their normal job from home. Of course, this isn’t possible for everyone, but many offices managed to successfully relocate their staff to allow them to work from home, and for a lot of people this has worked so well that it is something that they will continue.

One of the advantages of working from home is that there is no commute, meaning if you have a dream of living in the countryside, somewhere a bit further away from the office, if you work from home you can make that dream a reality.

There are lots of reasons that people want to move to the countryside. Of course, it isn’t for everyone, but you tend to find that you will have a larger garden and more outdoor space – so if you want to grow your own veg, keep your own chickens or simply have a larger space for your kids to enjoy running around and letting off steam, you will find that rural living could be perfect for you.

Of course, sometimes rural living can have some additional challenges – bad weather can make you more prone to being snowed in or you may have power cuts. But there are always ways around most of the different aspects of rural living – for example, many rural homes may not be connected to mains sewerage, but in this case you simply find a service such as this septic tank emptying Solihull based company who will be able to help.

For many people, they also find that moving to the countryside and away from the ‘rat race’ has the added advantage of significantly lowering their stress levels – a slower pace of life and the natural surroundings can make you feel much better.
