In this 90-second speed read, we look at the things people are stopping and starting in October.

The One Thing that Doesn’t Look Like Stopping in Manchester in October Is …

2020 will go down in history as the year when life stopped, albeit temporarily.

And with local lockdowns still coming into force, that feeling of stop-starting stuff is still around.

It’s a little like the hokey cokey but with stop-start replacing in-out.

This all makes it a little ironic that next month is now synonymous not just with falling leaves and trick or treating, but with people trying to put a stop to bad habits and start healthier new ones.

Stoptober – Stoptober is back for 2020, to encourage the UK’s smokers to try to quit for October and beyond. The NHS has strong evidence that if a smoker can quit for 28 days, they are five times more likely to quit forever.

Sober October – It started out in Australia more than ten years ago and is a way of encouraging people to ditch the booze for 31 days. Many use this challenge to raise money for charity while not lifting a glass of alcohol to their lips.

The multiple health benefits of stopping smoking and cutting down on alcohol seem increasingly attractive as medical experts are urging us all to do things to boost our immune systems.

Non-Stop Property Market in Manchester

From a property perspective, the market hasn’t stopped flying high since the national lockdown ended.

The summer months of July and August are traditionally slower months for the home moving market, but this year there’s been no stopping it.

Whether they’re looking to buy, sell or rent, people are remaining active, and this looks likely to continue until December at the earliest.

Good luck

So, if you are looking to start a new chapter in your life by adopting a positive new habit, ending a negative old one or finding a new place to call home, we wish you well.

We can help with the moving part, but ditching the drink and cigarettes is down to you, good luck.
