  • Yes of course

    Scientists have confirmed what every urbanite has long suspected – life in the city is more stressful.


    Researchers have shown that the parts of the brain dealing with stress and emotion are affected by living among the crowds.


    The findings help shed light on why those who are born and raised in urban areas are more likely to suffer from anxiety, depression and schizophrenia than those brought up in the countryside.

  • City people lack priorities

    In all the hustle and bustle of the city life we tend to overlook the things that last and truly matter. The things that last (eg. Love, natural environments, happiness) are all overlooked as we wastefully spend our time seeking promotions so we can consume more of the things we think make "living better" and lose all sense of what's moral and important.

  • Urban people are missing the life they need to be living

    REASONS: pollution, overcrowded, crimes and killings, can't trust people in the city and higher property costs in general. Also need permits in urban areas just about all the time, traffic is terrible which means horrible transportation other than the wired people on metro. TRASH IS EVERYWHERE. UNDISCIPLINED FOOLISH PEOPLE NOT ALL BUT MANY IN THE CITY. Lastly You can do all most whatever the hell you want as long as you keep the peace and it is legal. One more thing to add is food comes from rural areas and into food markets, wildlife is cleansing to the mind, teaches you how to respect creation and life itself as well as other people, can build cool inventions, prospecting for natural minerals like ores, hike, back pack. Build forges, know everybody in the community.There is a lot to do in rural areas if you just put your mind to it and life is simple and not authenticated by full force governed living. Rural living is very peaceful.

  • Obviously , its common sense

    I would prefer to live in a city as there advantages overcome the disadvantages someone may argue that living in a village means it’s possible to know everybody. However, it’s difficult to keep yourself to yourself also living in a city ensures your safety. Although the air can be polluted in cities, it’s still safer as if you had an accident you would nearer to a hospitable. Whilst talking about the topic of travel living in a city means that it is not necessary to travel for long distances just to go to school, shops, doctors etc. Besides, what’s the point when your school could be a corner away?
    Another reason is that the job opportunities are minimal as there is not much work. Consequently, it would be difficult to be able to have enough money. This may lead to travelling long distances to your workplace. Moreover, transport links are quite rare in villages whereas in cities transport varies. Most cities have better transport facilities there lots of cars, buses and train making transportation much easier. City residents can communicate easily, and they enjoy a more comfortable and enjoyable life.
    Furthermore, city life is much more comfortable. There are more opportunities for people to develop in their lives and make money. Also, children who live in the city have access to good education, because there are better schools in the town than in the village. Living in town is better village life because in town we meet people different kinds of people; socialize with them and learn a thing or two from them. As a result, our view of life changes as we begin to see things in a different light.
    Overall, there is more efficient transportation as well as more hospitals. It also has more opportunities as well as diversity and competition. This will make you strive to be the best that you can be. People get to explore and get knowledge of different kinds of things, culture, religions. Whereas in a rural area its less cultivated with other cultures.

  • Rural is better

    This is better because in rural you have alot more privacy and you get more relaxations of the wildlife . And entertainment is free or low cost (hiking etc.) so many more reasons that rural living is btter and there are no terrorist attacks in rural area but in urban terrorist attack are liely just like the 9/11 attacks. Thank you for reading this and sub to me on youtube for consiparcy therys at youtube.Com/user/TheBossAndClaw

  • Rural living is peaceful, healthy and allows time for reflection and connection with nature. It is also much more independent.

    In rural areas, entertainment is free or very low-cost (hiking, wildlife photography, paddling), whereas in urban areas everything is overpriced and there is nothing to do unless you have money. On a rural homestead you can produce some of what you need (gardening, harvesting firewood, wildcrafting, producing renewable energy). In urban areas your homestead is a house, land is secondary so you have no corresponding property to produce any portion of what you need or use. Rural living is peaceful, quiet, and inspiring. You have the changing of the seasons, the stars above, the sounds of birds and animals to remind you that life is much bigger and more profound than the societies that we've created. In urban areas, the entire world revolves around humanity and human-created distractions like shopping, competing, etc. The rural world revolves around your environment (necessarily), the urban world revolves around money and humanity.

  • Rural life is more relax

    You don't need to worry about houses or cars.You can go any places without traffic problem. And the food is green and safety. You also don't have much pressure for working and living. Sometimes an easy life can makes more meanings than a busy life. Though you don't have much money, you have happiness and it can't be got easily.

  • People living in rural places

    They tend to have more close-knit communities and people there are friendly. On the other hand, those living an urban lifestyle are very "distracted" because of their very open and social life. They get to busy with their electronic devices and lose things that are even more beautiful. Such as nature, forestry and truly eating and talking to family members for dinner.

  • More contact with people

    I'm currently weighing whether to go to an urban campus college, or rural, and really I'm liking a bit more rural than Urban. I'd probably say sub-urban is the way to go since u get a bit of both, and if you seem to like one side better than the other, than you can always move(hopefully). But preferably, i'd steer more towards rural, where you are more connected to nature, interpersonal relationships flourish, and more space to party, whereas in cities there is no space! =P

  • The case for living in the country

    Big city glamor? Balderdash. Try big city cost. If you want to live like a king (or at least be your own landlord), move to the country.

    1. It's cheap. You have to actively try to spend more than $20 on a meal, even a good one. A movie still costs single digits. No one has a clue or cares what brand of clothing you're wearing, let alone whether your shoes, purse or belt are this year's season or last. And did I mention housing? You can live in a real house with multiple bedrooms, multiple bathrooms and a garage. Maybe even a pool. And you can own it for under $200,000. Yup, you read that right. I didn't leave off any zeros.

    2. There's space – for you, for your dog, for your kids, between you and your annoying neighbors. An ad on the NY subway sums up: "Raising a baby in an NYC apartment is like growing an oak tree in a thimble." In the city, you live on top of each other. Your kids and your dog barely know what grass is. In the country, you have something called a yard. You run around, kick a football and chase fireflies. You go sledding and build snowmen on fresh snow that hasn't been trodden by hundreds of others. You can actually identify constellations because you see lots of them each night. You are fascinated by a lot more interesting animals than squirrels, and your dog acts like a dog, you don't have to carry around bags for its poop.

    3. There are no billionaires. And frankly, few millionaires. To put it another way, there's a lot less income inequality. Since the cost of living is much lower, even those on the median family income (about $50,000 in the US) can have a decent life. You don't feel poor as you do in big cities where even those earning six-figures still believe they're "just getting by". In the country, you aren't constantly aware of your socioeconomic status. You worry a lot more about the weather.

    4. You aren't reliant on public transit. You don't have to push your way onto an overcrowded subway car only to find yourself squashed next to someone who smells or elbows you. You aren't late because there's been a delay and some robot-like voice has to tell you about it over and over on the speaker. You can drive yourself where you want, when you want. Even if there's traffic (and there isn't much outside of cities), you can usually find another way to go. You are in control, and there's plenty of (free) parking.

    5. You don't get suspicious when people are nice to you. People say hello and "how are you" and generally mean it. You go to the grocery store and have a decent chance of seeing at least someone you know. Your doctor actually calls you back the same day you call with a concern. People don't size you up constantly based upon your job, social status or income. Volunteer work isn't something you do for your resume. You feel a part of a genuine community, not just one peon out of millions.

    The case for living in the city

    The countryside? It must be nice if you're retired … or dead. If you want to have a semblance of a social life and like to do wild things like, oh, going to the cinema on a Monday night, the city is for you.

    1. Walking. It's a thing. Forget about having to spend a quarter of your paycheck on a car. Forget about feeding your second-hand beater gallons of earth-destroying gas on a weekly basis. And (unless you live in LA) forget about spending two hours a day stuck in traffic. Living in the city means that walking is often an option. And if it's not, commuting by public transport makes you feel like you're part of the world: you and others are on the same boat, so to speak, taking time to pause and read, or listen to music, before reaching work or going home. And, from London to Paris, Amsterdam to Vancouver, chances are you will be also be lucky enough to be able to bike everywhere – making you both fitter and happier.

    2. You will never be the underdog. As Daria would tell you, it sucks to be the odd one out. If you're a goth, head to London's Camden Town, which will love to have you. You like playing in all-female netball teams? You'll find a club. Love mushroom-hunting? Start your own group. In Sydney, where I live, my local park alone is the home to joggers, skateboarders, tai chi lovers and tight-rope walkers. There's something for everyone. And kiss bigotry goodbye, too: if you're gay, you will easily find both a welcoming environment. And better dating prospects.

    3. The entire world is (almost) on your doorstep. I don't know about you, but it would be a shame to die on the way to the hospital – or give birth on the side of a road. Which probably won't happen in the city. You can order anything from online stores and – miracle! – receive it the next day. Museums, galleries, libraries are easily accessible, a lot of them free. And food: enough said. Who likes to have the choice only between a grim pub serving dismal burgers or fish-and-chips and the local Subway branch at the back of a derelict mall? Not me.

    4. It teaches you tolerance. The world is a diverse place – and in the city, you learn that fast. There's a reason New Yorkers are considered to be the most thick-skinned people on earth: nothing fazes them, because no one has time to be fazed and they've seen it all anyway. Someone is rude to on the subway? Move along. Someone cuts you while queuing in the supermarket? Get ahead and get even. But cities also teach patience and empathy because, after all, you're all in this together. Compromise is in the very fabric of city living. Neighbours complaining about your Saturday party? You have to reach an agreement. People who don't act, think, or speak like you do? Kids who annoy you by listening to rap music in the bus? They share your space, too. And you, theirs. It's an imperfect and fragile microcosm, which, no matter its many drawbacks, seems to work. Almost like magic.

    5. The countryside is not like living in Gilmore Girls. If you think the countryside is like living on the idyllic Gilmore Girls' set, you're mistaken. Nor are you likely to live the Good Life, a la Helen and Scott Nearing, who fed themselves thanks to their homestead until they both died. True country-living means backbreaking work, including thankless chores performed before dawn. Here in Sydney, I pop to the corner shop to get eggs at midnight if I want. And if you're not a true back-to-the-lander living on a 120-acre farm in the middle of nowhere, you then have to live in a community where everything you do will be scrutinised. Privacy will be hard to maintain. No such thing will happen in the city, where people couldn't care less whether you like to walk around with your pet snake, like to wear mini-skirts in sub-freezing weather, or sing Bryan Adams' Everything I Do I Do It For You out loud while on your way to buy a baguette. Short of becoming a hermit, if you're a private individual or an introvert, city life is for you.
