Advantages of living in the City

By February 6, 2019Uncategorized

Why do I love the City? Let me count the ways. First of all, a city is walkable and while a trainer once told me “walking isn’t exercise, it’s a form of transportation”, I say it’s both. One of the easiest and healthiest ways to stay fit is to walk every day if you can. Even if that means on some days you just get up from your desk and walk around your office as frequently as possible, it’s a start. One of the great benefits of urban living is that you can get to so many things by foot – restaurants, the gym, the movies, theater, concerts, book stores – you name it and its right at your finger-tips, or should I say “toe-tips”. Exposure to a diverse population of all ages, colors and ethnic backgrounds provides the opportunity to get to know folks who are different from you which will broaden your horizons. And you don’t really need a car. There’s public transportation not to mention taxis, Uber and Lyft that can get you wherever you need to be, and I guarantee you will spend less than your annual car payments and car insurance. I know it isn’t for everyone, but you may be surprised and delighted to find out it’s for you.
