Expat Professionals, The Panama Pensionado, And Positive Mental Health

  Posted Friday October 13, 2017 (09:31:55)   (175 Reads)


 

Our podcast guest this week is Jonathan Brown, who talks about his life in Singapore and how to maintain a location-independent lifestyle.

On Tuesday it was World Mental Health Day; Dr. Walid Abdul-Hamid of Priory Dubai wrote an article for us about promoting positive mental health in the workplace.

Of course it's important not to neglect any aspect of health - this week, we ask whether you should opt for local or international health insurance.

Professional life abroad can be a challenge - there's been an influx of expats into Japan from Singapore. We take a look at why that might be.

Not everyone works for a company - here's a guide to self-employment in Chile.

If you've worked all your life and you're now looking for somewhere warm and laid-back to retire, take a look at Panama.

Columnist Jess Faraday has some tips for expats moving to Scotland.

We have a couple of useful guides for you this week: here's a guide to driving in Italy, and here's how to deal with the bugs in Costa Rica.

We also caught up with several people who live abroad this week:

Hyun in Estonia
Kimberly in Egypt
Rama in Germany
Jordan in England
Joy in New Zealand
