In modern life, many people derive inner satisfaction from the hustle and bustle and creative energy offered by cities. If we’re all in search of a life with less stress, why is it that so many of us choose to live somewhere considered, well, stressful? Furthermore, the romanticism of city life and the appeal of architecture has lead to the demand of experiencing a favourite city or iconic structure in our own homes with a wall mural.
Why we can’t help falling in love with cities
A city buzzes and thrives with energy, wherever you look. City life entails public transport that gets you almost anywhere, a diversity of culture, endless dining and entertainment options, and highly cosmopolitan populations. By day, tourists swarm to enjoy the sights and sounds, workers energise buildings, streets and courtyards, and the hum of busy traffic fills the connecting roads, rail and waterway networks. At night things change when the sun sets. The avenues throb with far more activity. People are out and about, standing, talking and joking in front of the building, on street corners and enjoying the theatres, restaurants, and squares where citizens congregate. While some people decry the razzmatazz of city life as loud and raucous, filled with police sirens, fire engines, and honking taxi cabs, other will find peace of mind there. They develop an ability to tune things out, and for those people, city life is relaxing.
City life and city living are a far cry from country living. Nature and the natural world can be an antidote to all of life’s hustle, bustle and difficulties. In the 20th century, cities offered opportunity and a place to earn money, and when it all got too much, those that could escape to a life in the country, did it with earnest. County living became an aspiration for a more peaceful and fresher lifestyle and offered a sanctum to calm the mind and body.
But reaction to urban life endures waves and cycles. In the 21st century, investment in city centres, restoration and rejuvenation of tired historical quarters has brought back safer, exciting and trendy city-living which more and more people are falling in love with. Even those people living outside of cities a craving a regular reminder of its beauty, drama and excitement.
