Boosting health and wellbeing in the sun
From Catalonia to the Costa del Sol, expats are feeling benefits to mind, body and soul
Those seeking an improvement to their quality of life should look to Spain. Expats report improvements to both physical and mental wellbeing, all while enjoying an incredible climate.
While Siestas in the workplace may be a thing of the past, later start times and leisurely lunch breaks are common in Spain. Indeed, a more flexible approach to scheduling is typical of the relaxed working environment, something expats have seen a direct impact from as work life balance generally improves for those that move to there.
More than 80 million holidaymakers visit Spain each year and the tourism industry has a lot to offer expats when it comes to career prospects.
The allure of Spain for expats goes beyond the climate, however, and expats report feeling better in both body and mind as a result of living there. In fact, expats in Spain are the most likely out of any country to say their mental wellbeing has improved as a result of living there.
While Spain doesn't receive the same plaudits for career progression and salaries as it does for its relaxed pace of life and scorching summers, expats there are happier, healthier and their aspirations are to live comfortably amongst beautiful surroundings.
