What Makes A Great Place To Live?

Finding the right place to live might be a lifelong quest – you can never be sure where you’ll find a home in the modern day and age, and only when you settle in and know it in your heart that you’re where you’re supposed to be will you be satisfied with the home you live in. You want a place that’s fun, that allows you to put down roots and expand a little, and you want to feel relaxed and safe.

But there’s some things that can help you out on this kind of quest. After all, if you’ve labored long and hard to get the money together, and now you want to know that the mortgage you apply for will be spent on the right four walls, surely there’ll be some tips out there! Look at getting good windows contractors to get your house filled with natural light and look stylish at the same time. So, with this in mind, let’s go through some of the things that make a place great to live in.

Green Space and Quiet Places

One of the main things you want when moving to a new area is the promise that greena and open spaces are nearby, and that they’re as peaceful and secluded as you would need them to be. Even when living in a city, it shouldn’t be a hard push to find a park in the center or on the outskirts, where you can go for fresh air or to walk the dog.

Take London, Ontario as a good example here – London is an great place to live because of its emphasis on natural environments and the need for them in day to day life. It’s known as the ‘Forest City’ because of how green the whole place is, and that’s important for both your current and future happiness when trying to find a place to call home.

Facilities to Suit Your Family Situation

If you’re someone with a big family, you’re going to want plenty of child friendly places to take the kids on weekends and days off. Similarly, if you’re someone with elderly parents or a disabled sibling that you help to take care of, you’re going to want to move somewhere that has accessible facilities and a great local community support.

All in all, you need to move somewhere that’s suitable to your current living situation, and not just a place you think would be good for the future.

There’s an Eco-Friendly Plan in Place

And finally, make sure you’re moving somewhere that has a green plan all set and ready to go, and is taking steps to reduce the carbon footprint of the city as a whole. After all, you want to move somewhere sustainable, where you can do your bit for the planet, and that’s key to feeling happy and fulfilled in your home setting! Cities are growing quite rapidly, and the environment is struggling to keep up; move somewhere you can be sure you’re helping to offset the problem.

What makes a great place to live? Ultimately, it’s up to you!

Working @ Home Starts

Well it has started. I wasn’t expecting it since they said that the dispatching of office systems to our homes will take some time but we are now not working from the office officially from today. There are still a few people still at the office premises but we were told not to come in as it isn’t essential for us to do so. This information was passed onto us by the afternoon (we usually work late evenings to early morning).

We have shared our address details (some are from outside of Cochin and hence can give either their current address or their home address) and we are waiting for the office systems to be dispatched to our homes and then have them setup VPNs for us. This could take a few days as I and my team are considered to be part of the support staff and thus the frontliners get preference. So it’s a matter of waiting until they turn up and do the setup for me.

We can attend calls and continue taking e-learning sessions from our home pcs/laptops but I would prefer working on them using the office pcs. It seems so weird as I have all this free time but cannot go anywhere. Oh well, there is a lot of stuff to watch on tv (streaming and dvd). I will sleep a lot too I guess.

No, this picture below is not of me – though I love Star Trek I do not own a cat or a Mac (used to).
