For many people, Hawaii is about as close as it gets to paradise on Earth. With its beautiful beaches, tropical weather, incredible food and island culture, it’s not hard to see why Hawaii is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.
For those of us that are lucky enough to reside in Hawaii, living here can seem like a dream. Then again, not everyone is living their best life on the island. According to the US Census Bureau, between July 2017 and July 2018, around 3,700 people moved out of the state—resulting in the fifth-highest population loss in the entire country.
The number one reason why residents might decide to leave the Aloha State is fairly obvious. Hawaii is one of the most expensive states in the USA to live in, and changes in finances can make living here difficult and hard to manage. Whatever your reasons for considering a move out of Hawaii, there’s no doubt that a well-planned and thought-out relocation can be a life-changing experience. Take a look at how relocation can help jumpstart your year in 2020 and set the tone for the rest of the decade ahead.
Better Career Opportunities
There’s no denying the fact that the job market in Hawaii is tough state-wide. With so many people wanting to live here, competition is high in any industry and it can be difficult to find a job in most sectors. Even tourism can be hard to break into, and the entire island is built on this field. If you’ve become frustrated with the job market in Hawaii, are dealing with unemployment, or feeling stuck in your career, moving to an area with more opportunities and less competition could be exactly what you need.
Changing gears in 2020 with relocation could lead to exciting growth in your career and the opportunities you’ve been hoping for. For the best outcome possible, research your industry and the cities that offer the most opportunities for applicants in your field.
Cost of Living
As nice as it can be to live here, Hawaii is expensive. Once you consider the fact that living on many mainland cities—like Austin or Atlanta, to mention two fast-growing cities in the US—can be much more affordable, a relocation can be worth thinking about. Do your research to see what kind of life you can afford somewhere else, and plan accordingly.
More Conducive Environment
Whether it’s about your family’s safety or the need for access to better education, cleaner air, or better healthcare costs and services, if you think there is a more conducive place for these things that you value, the start of the decade is the perfect time to relocate. Take time to research where it is best to move in order for you to be able to enjoy a more satisfying life based on your standards and priorities.
Change in Environment
Hawaii is often referred to as a paradise for the rich, the retired, and for the tourists. For the rest of us, Hawaii can offer very different versions of itself that are often far different than what the rest of the world might imagine.
In other words, it’s no secret that not everyone in Hawaii is living the dream here. If you’re feeling like getting off the island is a good idea, it’s definitely an idea worth exploring. In fact, 2020 might be the perfect time to boost your life satisfaction and move somewhere else for a more comfortable, happier life.
