We explore the benefits of incorporating mind health into your daily life to support you through periods of change, when living or working away from home.
In our previous article, ‘Nurturing mind strength in a virtual world’ , we shared that investing in your emotional state is as important as physical health when living or working abroad.
However, despite increased awareness to challenge the perceptions and stigma that surrounds mental health, strengthening your mind health is still often reserved for a crisis, such as during the current Covid 19 pandemic .
We have learnt from AXA’s World of Work 2020 – Mind Health Report, that in today’s ever-changing environment, everyone can benefit from strengthening their mind health.
Whether you’re embarking on an international work assignment, emigrating with your family, or enjoying retirement in the sun - it’s crucial to have the right support to help you adjust to a new and unfamiliar environment. From speaking a new language, to adapting to a new work culture, expats and everyone needs to invest in their mind health, every day.
