Cigna has expanded the range of services available to address mental health concerns. As a limited offer until the end of May 2022, they are offering an upgrade on all new subscriptions, by adding the Health & Wellbeing module completely free of charge and for the lifetime of the policy.

It's been more than two years since the first lockdown was announced and the pandemic changed the way we live, forcing us to adapt to a new lifestyle, especially for those who had to stay indoors. No more schools, no more cinemas and plays, no more commute, no more office work... During the COVID-19 crisis, a lot of people took the opportunity to focus on personal life, change their routines, spend more time outside, do more exercise, open their mind to new projects and prioritise their own health.

While it might have been a very good experience for some, at least initially, it became quickly obvious that the pandemic created difficult situations for a lot of us. With lockdowns and restrictions constantly changing in response to the rising Covid-19 infection rates, the impossibilities to travel and repatriate, financial uncertainty and difficulties to interact have caused a lot of stress on expats.

Health refers to our state of physical, mental and social wellbeing. where disease is absent. Positive wellbeing means not only experiencing good health but also enjoying feeling of wellness, often associated with comfort, security, happiness and content. The World Health Organisation links health explicitly with wellbeing and states:

"Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. [...] Well-being exists in two dimensions, subjective and objective. It comprises an individual's experience of their life as well as a comparison of life circumstances with social norms and values."

Improving wellbeing can take many different ways. Exercise has a huge impact on health, and there is a proven link between physical and mental wellbeing. Managing stress and learning how to maintain a good work-life balance is also critical. Sleep, positive thinking, lead to more productivity in every aspect of our life.
