Smart health apps for expats

Let these mobile apps help you to take control of your physical and mental health wherever you are in the world. From fitness apps to sleep monitoring. 

Being away — from your home, routines and support network of family and friends — can wreak havoc on your overall health if you’re not careful. When that’s combined with stress and lack of access to healthy food options or favorite fitness activities, the impact is even stronger.

Thankfully, today’s technology makes it a lot easier for you to take control of your physical health and emotional well-being no matter where you are in the world.
