Why live in the country?

People live in the country for different reasons. Such reasons can be seen as the advantages the country life has over the city. Below is a look at some of such considerations:

Friendly community
There are those individuals who choose to live in the country due to the fact that people in the countryside tend to be friendly in comparison to those living in the cities. The country holds lesser populace compared to the crowded cities, and as such neighbors get together and know each other, in that way, living in a friendlier manner. In that way, the community becomes friendly and safer, keeping in mind that the crime rate will evidently be lower since one knows their neighbors.

Peaceful and slow life
The other reason a person may prefer to live in the country is the peaceful nature as well as the slow pace of life. Individuals living in cities have to deal with the noisy environment. The traffic and lots of movements make it hard to enjoy a peaceful day. This also means that one has to be on their toes to keep up with the day’s activities; else you get late, say to get to the job due to traffic or miss that parking lot. These are considerations that do not prevail in the countryside, fewer people reside there, the environment is calm and peaceful, and there is hardly traffic jam or lack of parking spaces, hence, no stressing time and traffic pressure.

Spreading nature and lower cost of living
It is pleasurable to live in the country. This is because you get to enjoy the spreading natural beauty including features such as lakes, mountains, forests among other breathtaking sceneries. Such nature works bring in calm as well as an adventurous feeling, making life in the countryside pleasing, not t forget that such pleasures come at no charges since the natural amenities are free.

Why one chooses to live in the country depends on their preferential features, all seen as advantages the countryside has over the cities.
