Things to Consider Before Relocating
While some locations might appeal for the nightlife or simply the warmer climate, it's essential to consider the impact moving will have on your overall health and wellbeing. The cost of living can vary substantially when considering different cities, particularly in large metropolis areas. Make sure you take an honest look at your budget before deciding to find a new residence or face a housing crisis when you can't afford living accommodations.
Likewise, it's always important to consider your current career before relocating. While many jobs exist in different cities, you'll lose any seniority you've built with your current company, along with any health insurance. The salary for these positions may also vary greatly, depending on the job's demand. Make sure you apply to several new job positions before moving, especially if you need a specific salary to survive after the move.
Amenities are another vital consideration you need to consider before relocating. While larger metro areas are likely to offer similar products or services, smaller locations may not. If you enjoy specific luxuries, for example, it's always wise to research their availability. Before moving, you'll also need to establish any current services like dog walking, gym memberships, or health providers.
If you have a strong family connection to your current city, you must consider the impact moving will have on your mental health. Close contacts are essential to maintain, regardless of distance. Some may enjoy phone calls or quick video chats; others may need physical interaction with their friends and family. Always be honest about your expectations of friends and family before leaving. If you'd like to have them travel or visit, find out the probability of that happening.
Determine how holidays, celebrations, and momentous occasions will be celebrated. Will you travel back home, or would you like to host? Is driving possible, or would you need to fly? If you need to fly back home, will you financially be able to afford the expenses after your new living arrangements are calculated? These are small considerations that hold substantial impact on your happiness in your new city.

Is physical learning a more effective form of learning than e-learning?
One important lesson to be learned from the COVID-19 situation is that the traditional physical teaching method with eye-to-eye contact is still the most effective form of learning.

Using an online educational platform provides a better balance of professional and academics, so no sacrifices are required.

Why should we not adopt eLearning forever?
The present E-Learning tends to isolate and contemplate students. As a result of the absence of social interaction, many students and teachers who spend a lot of time online might develop social isolation. Lack of communication and social isolation typically leads to mental health concerns, including stress, anxiety, and negative thinking.
However, in an eLearning environment, there are fewer external factors that motivate students. In many situations, students are left to their own devices during learning activities with no encouragement. Students pursuing E-Learning courses will frequently be expected to master a tricky subject in the comfort of their own homes, without the extra pressure of traditional universities. As a result, students who lack motivation and time management skills may struggle to meet regular deadlines when studying online.
Unfortunately, one of the significant drawbacks of E-Learning is cheating. In Online mode, students can easily cheat in examinations since they are in their own surroundings, with no supervisor and disciple around. This takes the essence of a test and assessment away from the life of a student. Without a video stream, pupils cannot be directly watched during exams. Also, without appropriate identity verification, students taking online tests may allow a third person to take the test in their place, resulting in a false test result.
