Expatriates could cut their likelihood of suffering from stress-related conditions by setting aside a short period of time every day to worry.
This is according to chartered psychologist and Abicord chief executive Graham Price, who said 30 minutes every evening could be sufficient.
"If you find yourself worrying at any other time, defer it to your worry time," he suggested.
Then, when this half-hour arrives, a person should see whether or not they can remember all of the things they are concerned about.
They could also defer these issues to tomorrow's worrying period, Mr Price suggested.
People generally are worried because they are exaggerating either the consequences of something bad happening or the likelihood of the event occurring, the psychologist pointed out.
He recommended individuals identify what they are blowing out of proportion, which will help them to put their fears into perspective.
Furthermore, they should recognise their worries are "both irrational and futile", Mr Price continued.
Sufferers could focus on how they could control their problem or accept they cannot change what will happen and accept their concerns, he added.
People with anxiety could be considerably more likely to have a health complaint that will require treatment through international healthcare insurance policies than those who do not have the problem.
According to Livestrong.com, one of the conditions worry and stress can cause is insomnia, or difficulty falling and staying asleep.
When a person is anxious, their body releases adrenaline, which causes blood vessels to constrict, muscles to tighten, the heart to beat faster and breathing rates to increase, which can prevent the individual from dropping off.
Continually feeling uncertain or fearful can also cause depression, the healthy living website noted.
Furthermore, anxiety can result in stress to the digestive system, as blood flows to muscles instead of the internal organs, it stated.
This can result in people suffering from chronic diarrhoea, as well as heartburn or acid reflux, which can progress into gastroesophageal reflux disease.
