Moving from one Climate to Another

It might not occur to everyone, that moving from one end of the country to the other – or to a different country completely could lead to a lot of changes involving the climate you’ll be living in as well.

Before you take the leap and move somewhere new, we suggest a few measures in order to make your transition as easy as possible!

1. Do your research before you move – no matter which city or country you move too there could be some new or different risks. If you are moving to a city that has more rainy days than your body is used too you might have to consider season affective disorder. Or if you are moving to a highly populated city that has a lot more smog you might need to consider avoiding being outdoors for long periods of time until your body is able to adjust to the changes. The same goes for areas with higher or lower humidity levels, high altitude, or even different natural disaster risks. You’ll want to make sure you have a good idea of what you are moving into – so you can be prepared.

2. Depending on what the climate changes are may need to consider taking some appropriate health measures before you move. If you are moving to warmer climate or somewhere closer to the equator you will need to protect your skin from the harsher sun. Make sure to stay hydrated, and avoid direct sunlight as much as possible. If you have pre-existing health concerns, it is important you discuss this with your doctor prior to moving as things like asthma can be aggravated in different areas. Your doctor will be able to make specific suggestions for your concerns before you move. Once you have scheduled appointments for yourself – make sure to have your children or pets checked out to prepare for a move as they are just as likely to have skin issues or similar health problems as yourself.

3. Pack and prepare for your move as best as possible – with a different climate comes a different need for clothing or items within your home. If you are moving from a warmer climate to one that is a bit cooler you will need to make sure you have the appropriate outwear, or some extra blankets for your home. If you are moving somewhere that gets a lot of snow – consider investing in some different tires for your car and better suited footwear for the snowy weather.

4. Check in with locals or friends you have met that used to live in the area you are planning to move too. They will be able to give you tips and tricks to survive the changes in climate. If you don’t know anyone in or from the area you are living in there are a lot of resources online that will help you prepare. This will also require that you prepare mentally for the changes in your living situations – being able to exercise outdoors might not be an option for you all year round or you might have to give up easy access to some of your favorite wintertime activities! It might be helpful to reach out to people in the area to find out how you are able to adjust your lifestyle, but also ensure you are staying fulfilled!

Moving can be stressful no matter how far away you plan to go – but hopefully this will help ease any large climate changes you may be feeling!!
