No matter where you’re located, or how deep your roots are, your location has a huge effect on your work environment. Varying weather, scenery, people and above all, traffic, can positively or negatively affect your disposition to enjoy your job.

Many candidates have taken a ‘location first’ approach when it comes to choosing jobs. If you’ve got your eyes on greener pastures, now might be the best time in a long time to give things a shot.

Not only does the place you live affect your attitude about your work; it affects your attitude about life. In his book “The Blue Zones of Happiness,” Dan Buettner writes about how physical location relates to happiness levels of the residents. “Where a person lives determines their level of happiness more than any other factor,” Buettner says. 

One of the largest external factors on individual happiness levels pertains to the weather. If you’re averse to rainy weather, Seattle might not be the best location. If you lead an active lifestyle, you’re going to be happier in a climate that encourages that activity.
