There are many people in the world that just wouldn’t be able to function in a rural environment. Whether it’s the high-speed always-on internet, the convenience of delivery services or fast food restaurants, there’s a lot to love about living in the city. However, there are just as many, if not more, advantages of working in a rural location.

Fewer distractions

Rural environments offer fewer distractions, meaning you can get your work done quickly and easily. There’s no traffic, no large crowds and you’ll be surrounded by beautiful landscapes and nature.

Lower cost of living

Purchasing or renting a home in a rural area is a lot cheaper than the city which could drastically lower your costs of living.

Improved work/life balance

Because rural can reduce the amount of stress in your life, it’s the perfect way to achieve an improved work/life balance.

Unique opportunities

Rural opportunities are diverse and unique, especially if you’ve worked in a city for most of your life. It’s the perfect chance to try something new and potentially take your life in a different direction.

Freelancer’s paradise

If you’re a freelancer, then many of the conveniences of working in the city (such as public transport) usually won’t apply. This makes it a great place to live for a lower cost while also improving your wellbeing and without disrupting your work life.

A chance to do something positive

We’ve added an infographic that explains various solutions for social work in rural communities. It goes to show that rural areas are in need of help and that those areas present countless business opportunities, but also a chance to have a positive impact on society which can lead to stability for your company.
