Can moving abroad improve your health and wellness? Tune in as Kristin speaks with a registered nurse about how different lifestyles in different countries impact your health, wellness, and quality of life. Plus, how the culture in the society you grew up in (and live in) can affect your health long-term. 

 

“Just being aware that a lot of your lifestyle is also imprinted by the culture of the society is the first step. This is like an awareness that many of your daily habits can actually be pushed upon you by the culture that you live in. So, you’re also finding a lot more people who are nearing retirement age who are opting to move to different countries so they can have a better quality of life and they can have more affordable healthcare.” - Kristin Wilson
