As you may or may not know I have spent the last year training to become a health coach. I am literally days away from certification – YAY. I have been actively involved in health and wellness for a few years now in an effort to be the healthiest version of myself. I have also been an expat woman for over a decade.
This past year the move to Zurich was one of the hardest moves I have ever done. I know what helped me survived and now want to help expat women that may be going through a similar experience. Moving to a new country can be exciting and fun, but if you experience the dark side of it – loneliness, alienation, lack of confidence, weight gain, depression – it can be the worst experience ever affecting the entire family.
A lot of women put themselves last during a massive family transition when they really need to move their needs to the top of the priority list. The wives/moms are the ones who bear a lot of the burden to ensure a successful move for everyone. It’s easy for women to get lost in the shuffle and their health is neglected. This is my own opinion after going through a difficult adjustment period. Some women may be able to relate to this more than others.
I would like to focus on expat women during or after an international move. I have created a survey that would help me do my job better and just gives me a little bit of insight before I head down this path. If you are an expat woman or have lived abroad before, please take a moment to answer this quick 10 question survey. Click here for survey.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME AND HELP!
