Expatriates could cut their likelihood of being treated for stress-related conditions with international private medical insurance policies by engaging in regular exercise, statements from a specialist have indicated.
Dan Roberts, cognitive therapist at danroberts.com, called working out "one of the best stress-busting approaches there is".
He pointed out activities such as cycling, jogging and walking do not cost anything.
Previously, the expert had said these tasks are good for the heart and the brain, as they promote the circulation of blood.
Scientists have called it "the single best thing we can do" to improve the function of the brain, he noted.
Other suggestions to reduce negative emotions outlined by the specialist include speaking to people about problems.
This conversation could occur with partners, family members, friends or specialist charities, Mr Roberts declared, adding: "Bottling things up will only make it worse".
Furthemore, stressed individuals can benefit from anything that relaxes them, which could be massages, reading books, listening to music or taking a "long, hot bath", he remarked.
