Things to expect when moving to a warm climate

Moving to a place that has a warmer climate all year round does come with a lot of perks. The presence of vitamin D will make you feel healthier and more energetic. And, instead of spending all your free time in front of the TV, the nice weather will motivate you to go outside, be more active and social.

However, everything that comes with pros usually has some cons attached. The way you will react to those cons, of course, depends on your health condition, your life situation, and your preferences. But, there is nothing to worry about. After all, all those people moving to places with warm climates are doing it for a good reason. And, you rarely see somebody who regrets that decision. The most important thing is to be prepared! Thus, here is what you can expect when moving to a warm climate.

Your Routine Will Change

One thing is for sure, after moving to a place with a warmer climate, your daily (and probably nightly) routine, will change. How come? Well, if you are used to going to work on foot, in places with a warm climate you will need to invest in a car.

Just imagine having to walk from your office space to your home in the middle of the afternoon when the temperatures reach their peak. For instance, in Florida, 90°F is considered normal. So, if moving to Florida, get yourself well-informed and see whether you can actually endure the temperatures there.

However, besides going to work and coming back home, you will also need to change all other routines you are used to doing during the day and afternoon. But, do not worry, you will still be able to do everything, just at a different time of the day.

The Bills Will Increase

It is also important to mention that when moving to and living in a place with a warm climate, the temperatures are not the only thing increasing – so are the bills! In your previous home, you probably did not have to keep your A/C on all the time.

But, in a place where the temperature is constantly around  90°F (sometimes even higher), turning the A/C off is simply not possible. If you do not cool your body, you will not only be constantly uncomfortable but you might also risk your health.

But, of course, there is a solution to this problem too! Before you call to relocate you and all of your belongings to your new home, make sure that that home is well-insulated. Also, consider investing is fans, window shades, and a more efficient A/C model.

Your Skin Will Need More Protection

And, of course, your skin will be the one that is suffering the most. Even though living in an area with a warmer climate might seem like a vacation all year round, you still must be very careful. Otherwise, you may suffer from serious health problems. Thus, before anything else, take precautions before going outside. Here is how:

  • Use sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher
  • Wear a hat
  • Wear sunglasses
  • Wear clothes that can ‘breathe’.

If you follow these four simple guidelines, you will have nothing to worry about. You will soon see that moving to a place with a warmer climate really paid off. Just make sure to stay protected from the sun. Use natural shade whenever possible. If you plan on visiting the beach, avoid the middle of the day.

Go to the beach in the morning or in the afternoon. The great news is, you will reduce the risk of stress when moving, as you will only need to pack summer clothes as if you were going on vacation.

Your Pets Will Need Adjusting Too

You will not be the only one that has to adjust to a warm climate. Your pets will need it too. Especially dogs and cats that are used to living in places that have cooler or completely different temperatures.

Spending too much time outside in the heat can cause your furry friends to get really sick. So, you must do everything in your power to create a space that has a lot of shade or to simply let them inside during the hottest time of the day. Cats will adjust easily, of course, if they do not already have some health issues. However, dogs are the ones that will need more help.

Besides creating natural shade for them, as previously mentioned, you should also cool them down with water once a day, or even put a doggy pool in the backyard.

You Will Sweat, A Lot!

You probably saw this one coming. But, trust us, it will be worse than you thought because your body is not used to warm temperatures. However, there is nothing to worry about. Sweating is a natural thing, and it will decrease gradually.

Your body will just need time to adjust to your new home and its climate. In the meantime, do what you can to cool off. For instance, drink a lot of water, shower more often, wear loose and light-colored clothes, etc. As previously mentioned, you should avoid contact with direct sunlight, and stay indoors or at least in the shade from 11 AM to 5 PM. And, do not worry much, there are a lot of mental benefits of moving to a place that has a warmer climate. Do not let sweating stop you.
