Small Town Living
One of the benefits of living in a small town is the fact that you become much less reliant on vehicle travel. People walk places in a small town. You use your car less often, which also means that there is less pollution in a small town since there are less carbon emissions. It also means that there are less car accidents!
Another benefit of small town living, that is abundant in Campbellford is the beauty of nature. Parks, trails, trees and stunning views of the lake are everywhere. When you look around, you see green. The brick, concrete and pavement that surrounds you in a city is softened with nature and space in a small town. In towns like Campbellford, nature becomes part of your lifestyle. You go for walks in the park. You head to the lake to watch the sun set. You start to slow down and enjoy life and the world around you.
Small towns also have a lower cost of living. Often times land tax is lower and the homes often cost less as well. This means that you’re keeping more money in your pocket for choosing to live in a small town.
Recreation is incredible in small towns. Town usually have fun events and festivities throughout the year for all residents to participate in, such as festivals and fairs. The recreation in Campbellford is even better because there are so many water activities that you can participate in, such as fishing, boating, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding and more.
Small towns have much lower crime rates than cities, which means that it’s a great place to raise a family. You know that song from the show Cheers? “Where everybody knows your name”. Well, small towns are great for being friendly. You’ll get to know all of your neighbours. People will stop and say hi while you’re out running your errands. You’ll know your local doctor by name. You’ll know who is teaching your kids in a much more personal level. People are more neighbourly in a small town are more likely to help you shovel your driveway, or keep an eye on your house while you’re out of town.
A lot of people in the city feel a constant busyness that is part of city living. People are always on the go and are it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of it all. Small town living runs at a slower pace. People are more likely to have better work/life balance when they’re able to slow down and truly enjoy living.
More and more companies are jumping on the remote train because they realize how much better it is for people and for the environment. This leaves room for more people to be able to leave the city and enjoy that small town lifestyle that they’ve always been curious about.
Living in Nature
Research has shown that urban environments can be associated with higher stress levels. Recent studies have shown that people who live closer to nature and do things like take hikes or walk along wooded trails are less stressed. It can also help to reduce anxiety.
People who live close to nature tend to also be physically healthier. Hiking, walking on trails, swimming, canoeing and all of those wonderful activities get you outside, enjoying the sunshine, and exercising. Because you’re enjoying the exercise, you’re more likely to do it more often and for longer periods. Not only that, but the uneven terrain means that you’re working your body in a much more effective way than if you were to hop on a treadmill. Plus, you’re getting vitamin D at the same time, which is also a bonus.
A study from the Journal of Environmental Health Perspectives also showed that people who live closer to nature might actually have longer life expectancies. In this study, they found that those who lived close to nature were 13% less likely to die from battling cancer, were 35% less likely to suffer from respiratory diseases, and were 30% less likely to be depressed.
