2019 is right around the corner – and if you’re like many people, your resolution for the new year is to live where you love.
Life’s too short to be stuck in a place that doesn’t make you happy.
And the beautiful beach communities along 30A can make you happy.
Live Where You Love: Why 30A is the Best Place to Be
When did you first discover South Walton’s white sandy beaches and emerald waters reminiscent of an exotic coast line far from the clutches of the day to day schedules and routines? Were you on vacation? An escape from the cold, or a getaway from the big-city buzz?
Maybe you fell in love with 30A years ago, or maybe you’ve only been here recently but you’re kicking around the idea of making a big move. No matter how long you’ve been visiting or how many times you’ve come here, you know that the exceptionally well-planned beach communities along 30A have plenty of character – and that there’s a place for everyone here.
Settling Into a Place You Love
Psychologically, it’s healthy to live where you love – where we live affects our levels of life satisfaction. A study published by researchers from the University of Helsinki, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and the U.S. says that “the strength of associations between personality traits and life satisfaction depend on neighborhood characteristics” and that “people’s life satisfaction depends, in part, on the interaction between individual personality and particular features of the places they live.”
