Would you move into nature for health?


Would you move away from the cities for the sake of your health? Do you think you would be better in a more isolated or simpler community closer to nature and away from this high tech world? I don't like the internet and all that anymore.


I just gave the thought of leaving everything and felt a relief in my stomach I haven't felt before like a load off my whole body was dropped. The muscles in my stomach became so loose.


I just want to live in nature as humble and simple as I can.


Going back to basics. From dirt I came to dirt I return.

I kinda already live in nature, I hate the urban jungle's : /






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

I like living in non-crowded civilization that's close to nature. Would never live in a city or the wilderness.

I'd love to live in a rural community in a wooded area somewhere remote like Maine or something or in a or small quaint town something like that. The only problem is all the jobs are in the city. No idea how I would support myself living out in the sticks.

Everybody knows you only live a day but it's brilliant anyway

No, I live in the mountains and people come back from Florida vacations, bringing their viruses with them

The place in this video looks nice, minus the car jacking bears:


I live about 25 minutes walk away from farmland there are some horses around, also 20 minutes away from ****ty urban areas. I like like big cities like London, and also more scenic places, I also really like the sea. The kind of built up urban boring dead end town kind of environment is the worst. This music genre seems to have a related aesthetic of photos that look like photos I've taken before in my town from my window or while nightwalking in my town and that's on point. I was thinking about this the other day:



Think this band are from the UK too lol.

^ Some chocolate bars are too sweet, some are too bitter, but it looks like those bars were just right.

No. I'm afraid of bugs and terrified of bears and small towns are more dangerous for someone like me than a big city. I'll take my chances with the virus.

Is it just me or is it getting crazier out there.

Would it be quiet? I'm tired of hearing loud noise while relaxing at home. My neighbors, car traffic, train traffic, people talking loudly outside, construction, leaf blowers, lawn mowers, garbage trucks. I just want quiet.

You really hate those leaf blowers.

I actually sleep right through the lawn mowers and leaf blowers. Then run them right by my window. I hear them but my brain tunes them out the same way it does alarm clocks. If there's anything good about not being able to wake up very reliably by noise, it's that.

But my neighbors have started making terrible noises at all hours of the day and I can't sleep through that. Well, sometimes I can but mostly it wakes me up after an hour or so of constant banging and screeching and thrashing around like animals. Mostly this results in my being in a really pissy mood for most of the day and makes me want to start beating on the ceiling and screaming at them like a wild man.

Covid has at least been a reminder to me that you don't need much in life to be happy, and the slower pace to everything felt right to me.


Would love to slow it all down permanently and move out to the sticks, somewhere like the New Forest which isnt far from me, would be perfect

Tell 'em who the **** I am

Yes well it's a different type of noise, where I live most of the time it's birds, farm animals, foxes maybe, cats fighting & the elements making noise, sometimes ATV's & farm machinery & we seem to be on some kind of flightpath for rescue helicopters that fly too low & nearly shake the house down at 4am the odd time :-)

I've stayed in cities briefly before & I really hate traffic noise, people talking & construction noise.

I don't think I could ever move to the country. I like having people around me. Even very isolated beaches give me the creeps - I like ones with at least some people on them. I don't like them crowded but if no-one was there at all I'd hate it.

I think I would like to move to a city for a bit hah. Always been in the countryside.

What actually happens, in the countryside, is you get bored of the local scenery, because you live there, so you just stay indoors. Or that's what happens to me anyway. Be nice to walk around a city especially if it has interesting shops and so on.

I get the appeal though, but I would pick a busier place, but still one that isn't ugly. Its low priority for me though, tbh.

A hybrid would be good, somewhere like Vancouver, Victoria, or Banff. City amenities but steps to mountains, ocean, and forest.

I wouldn't be able to live somewhere really cut off from civilization, and I haven't been as happy living in a city so cut off from nature.

Not unless you really get to the middle of nowhere. My parents have 2 acres and their house seems at least as noisy as my apartment, because the neighbors are always running chainsaws or shooting guns or who knows what else, and everybody in the neighborhood has outdoor dogs that bark at every deer. The more space you have, the more surrounding noise increases to maintain the annoyance level.

And even if you live 10 miles from the nearest person you could still get an animal waking you up at dawn every day.

That only happens to me in flat places. Good 3D terrain never gets boring.
