Research Suggests That Moving Abroad Will Make You A Better Human

People choose to pack up and move abroad for a bunch of different reasons. Perhaps they’ve snagged a dream job, fell in love on holidays and never want to return or are just after a change of scenery. Whatever the case may be, moving abroad is one sure-fire way to secure a fresh start.

And studies say it might even make you a better person.

Aetna International, an international healthcare provider, surveyed expats from around the world to identify the perks and challenges of living in another country. Among the questions, respondents were asked about how they view themselves since moving abroad.
