Relocating to Seattle for a job or for family might potentially be the best thing you've done for yourself in a long time. Sure, moving can be quite stressful, but it doesn't have to be. If you have the right attitude and are well prepared, relocating doesn't have to cause undue stress in your life.

The psychological impact of relocating can be tremendous. It is up to you to decide if you want that impact to be positive or negative. A healthy, positive attitude will make relocating seem like an exciting voyage of discovery or an intriguing new direction in your life. A negative attitude will result in excess stress, nervousness, agitation, and depression after the move is complete.

The Benefits of Relocating to Seattle

Luckily, maintaining a positive attitude in this case isn't difficult. Seattle is, after all, one of America's premier cities. Seattle has a population of about 550,000 to 575,000 people of all races, religions, ages, nationalities, and sexual orientations. The unique blend of people in Seattle makes for an exciting urban setting with a friendly, personable atmosphere. The weather, though famously wet, is rather mild and enjoyable all year round.

Relocating to Seattle gives many people access to art, cultural activities, and jobs they couldn't find anywhere else. The city also boasts several professional athletic franchises for serious sports fans. Pikes Place market in downtown Seattle is recognized the world over and I personally think that the world's best fuji apples are sold on the top level close to the fish market.
