But there’s no need to feel “blah”—it may simply be a sign that you’re jonesing to relocate.

In this article, we’ll take a look at five of the most common reasons people choose to relocate. If one or more of them speak to you, it might be time to get your packing supplies gathered up!

Reason #1: You Hate Your Job

Okay, okay, maybe “hate” is a strong word, but it’s not the most unusual thing for an American to complain about. Perhaps you’ve been stuck in the same dead-end post for a few years, or maybe you already know that your new job just isn’t right. 

No matter the exact rationale, it’s important to trust your instinct when it comes to a decision as monumental (and time-consuming) as a career. If you’re searching for a profession you can feel passionate about, consider that it might not be in the current place you’re living. Why not research some dream jobs and see where it takes you?

Reason #2: You Want More Excitement

A lot of cities are quite exciting: full of culture, music, great food, interesting people. But a lot of cities are quite the opposite. If you’ve been chronically searching for artistic inspiration, culinary adventure, or acoustic entertainment and been searching for naught, the chances are good that your current city or town just isn’t the right “vibe” for you. But fear not, because there certainly is a place somewhere in this great wide world that can meet your unique tastes and preferences. If you’re an art collector with a flair for seafood, perhaps you could try San Francisco? Or if you’re more of a Southern Coaster at heart, maybe you’ll find a shell that fits on the beaches of Miami.

Reason #3: You Need To Leave Something (or Someone) Behind

With Valentine’s Day upon us, it’s all too easy to remember the could-haves and should-haves from our romantic pasts. Rather than dwelling on that recent dumping episode and eating an entire box of discounted chocolates, why don’t you channel that rage towards your ex into packing up boxes and moving somewhere they would be fiercely jealous of? 

Or maybe you don’t have a not-so-special someone you’re avoiding, but your town reminds you of a really difficult time in your life and you believe that memory is holding you back from reaching your fullest potential. There’s no shame in admitting that; what would be a shame is staying in the same spot and selling yourself short.

Reason #4: Your Current Place Is Too Expensive

With rental rates skyrocketing around the country, it seems there are more places where tenants are living paycheck-to-paycheck instead of living la dolce vita. It’s understandable that many people aspire to live in avant-garde locations like New York and Los Angeles, but the simple truth is that state and sales taxes are so outrageously inflated in these areas, only those with expendable income up the wazoo can afford to stay there for more than an AirBnB weekend.

If your current place is too expensive, consider relocating to a new town or city that’s more in line with your budget.

Reason #5: You Crave Fresh Surroundings

Nobody wants to look at the same things, day in and day out. So why not try something new and get a set of fresh surroundings? Whether you stay in the same state or move halfway across the country, you’re sure to be energized, invigorated, and refreshed by the new stimuli of your environment. 

Clearly, there are many reasons an individual may choose to move somewhere new. But regardless of the exact reason behind the decision, there is no getting around the fact that relocating requires help from other people.
