Probably many of you have thought about a better life, or a life that you can enjoy, by changing your lifestyle. Like moving to another country or just a different location, from a busy town to a quiet village, or from a damp wet, cold country to a warmer Mediterranean paradise. But most of you will go on dreaming and keep moaning about your life, working from dawn until dusk only to find that at the end of the month the money is finished. I’m not saying that at the end of the month you will be loaded with money, because on that score it’s much the same wherever you live, but you may as I did, find a lifestyle that suits your needs.
It’s much easier than you think! To change ones lifestyle, you just have to know what you want in life. For me it was a more outdoor life, where I can go trekking or mountain biking in the winter, then swimming or snorkeling in the summer. But to achieve this you have to give up something’s as well and live on a lot less income, you can subsidies income by growing your own fruit and vegetables, by planting trees that will give you wood for the wood burner later, catching your own fish, hunting for mushrooms, by doing all your house maintenance and repairs, you will be surprised how much you save. The same with your car all routine maintenance is carried out by you, once again a massive saving. All these things have now become my work, but I do it when I feel the need. You can also supplement you income by doing English lessons or translations, or maybe renting out holiday homes like I do in the summer. This I enjoy immensely, as it’s a great way to meet people. Now money is not important to me anymore, and I am happier with my lifestyle for sure. If anyone has any questions or is thinking of doing the same; please comment.
