There’s no doubt that London is one of the most dynamic, exciting and intense cities in the world. However, if you’ve been living and working in and around the capital for a while then the non-stop pace can start to get a little much and many people begin to crave some peace and quiet.
So, if you’re living in Hertfordshire or any of the Home Counties and want to get back to the good life, here’s how you can extricate yourself from the London whirlpool.
Look for a new source of income
If escaping the rat race involves quitting your job, the first thing that you’ll need to do is find a new source of income. If your home is big enough, you could consider opening a B ‘n’ B or if not you could retrain in a new profession that offers a more flexible working situation.
Reduce your outgoings
There’s a wise phrase that goes ‘the richest man is not he who has the most, but he who needs the least’. This is never truer than when applied to a change of lifestyle.
If you can reduce your outgoings, you can free up your career options, relieving some of the pressure from your finances and allowing you the space to breath. If you have quit your job, not having to pay to commute should have a positive impact on your finances and you could always consider downsizing or moving to a home with income potential to further improve your bank balance.
Move to the country
If you’re having trouble tearing yourself away from life near the capital, a more drastic solution may be needed and by that we mean a complete relocation. By moving from Hertfordshire to Cornwall, Norfolk or Wales, you can force yourself to relax and obtain the lifestyle change that you need.
It’s always advisable to obtain help from a specialist firm when undertaking something this big so make sure you look for local services that can help.

Whether you’re moving to the end of the country or just around the corner, a change is as good as a rest and will help you feel rejuvenated, energised and ready for your new stress-free life.
