Arizona Perks, Climate & Health Benefits
Arizona offers all kinds of climates

Obviously, Arizona is well-known for being extremely warm. People think of Arizona as being one big, hot desert. To an extent, that’s true. However, the state’s climate actually varies widely. Phoenix is a great place to be during the winter, with highs in the 60s and 70s. Though Arizona can get hot in the summer, the low humidity tends to make it feel not that bad.
Arizona’s weather might help your health

A warning comes with this possible benefit: Your mileage may vary. People assume that low humidity and high heat can help relieve both allergies and arthritis. The Arthritis Foundation confirms that cold, wet weather (something you won’t get much of in southern Arizona!) is the worst for inciting arthritis pain. The Cleveland Clinic warns, however, “Weather has some impact on arthritis, but it’s not the be-all, end-all.” What might actually help is that you’ll get out and be more active in warm weather than in cold climates.  As for allergies, people in Arizona get those, too, though they might be caused by different plants than what affects you back home. Plants can bloom all year in Arizona, too, with no killing frost. So perhaps the best advice: Come visit Arizona for a while first to see how your health fares.
Arizona yards are extremely low-maintenance

People tend to think of green lawns as being the epitome of a beautiful yard. Not so in Arizona. Arizona is full of beautiful, colorful flora that thrives in the dry climate. This makes Arizona a good place to live if you want a nice yard with minimum effort. People tend to fill up their yards with multicolored rocks rather than grass, and it makes for a uniformly pretty experience.
