Living as an expat comes with its own set of challenges. Understanding how other expats look after their general health and wellbeing, as well as what some of the common concerns are, can help you prepare for your time abroad, so you can make the most out of the opportunities it brings. We commissioned some expat research* to look at both of these things, and we found stress, anxiety and depression to be some of the most common concerns.
What works for expats, when it comes to looking after their general health and wellbeing? Some of the most popular ways expats deal with health and wellbeing challenges are through healthcare, building relationships and practicing mindfulness.
