We all want the best for our children, right? We spend our days working hard to earn the money we’ll use to provide for them, we wipe their tears away, and we do our utmost to ensure they always eat healthy foods. However, a recent survey revealed that kids growing up in hot countries like Australia, with the best climates on earth, tend to live much happier lives. So, today we’re going to look at some of the reasons why this might be. Of course, it won’t be the same for every young person, but the vast majority of them could benefit in a number of different ways.
With that in mind, take a few moments to read through all the points I’ve made below this paragraph, and you should come away with a better understanding of why moving to the sun could have such a significant impact on your child. I’m confident, after that, you’ll be looking at websites that specialise in land sales in no time. At the end of the day, building your own house in the sun will mean you have to spend less money, which is obviously favourable.
1. They’ll be happier
I know I’ve already said this, but I think it’s worth explaining exactly why they’ll enjoy life more. You see; all renowned psychologists and counsellors understand that weather can have a significant impact on human moods. Indeed, many people who suffer from depression find their symptoms are increased when skies are gray and they’re having to deal with constant drizzle.
2. They’ll have healthier interests
When you look at the number of children who spend more than one hour each day sat in their bedrooms using whatever the latest games console might be, you’ll notice that most of them live in countries with a poor climate. So, moving to a warm location will mean your kids are more inclined to find outdoor hobbies.
3. They’ll have more interesting friends
This point ties in with the last one, in that all the other children living nearby will also have more of an inclination towards spending their free time performing outdoor activities. Obviously, this means your own kids will be surrounded by intriguing friends who’re much less likely to get them into trouble during their teenage years.
4. They’ll be at less risk of obesity
With the United States of America being the only exception, children who are brought up in warm climates tend to eat less junk and more healthy food. This is thought to be because they spend more time outdoors getting the energy they need from the sun. Sadly, those who live in colder countries need to eat junk food most of the time to stop themselves from feeling tired.
5. They’ll become more intelligent
You know how you spent days outside as a child climbing trees and building secret hideouts? That was character building, right? Well, kids that come from cold countries no longer partake in pastimes like this, which means they often lack the social skills needed for entering the working world upon leaving school.
So there you have it moms and dads, you’ve just read five compelling reasons why you should consider selling up and moving abroad sometime during the first few years of your children’s life. I sincerely hope you take heed and provide them with the best start possible.
Thanks for reading!
