Health & Wellness

Living in Shanghai, while fun and dynamic, can be physically and mentally taxing. It’s easy to neglect to maintain a healthy mind and body.

    Many expats who move to Shanghai suddenly find that they have an incredibly busy schedule, mixing work, long commutes and social events. Given the poor air quality and lack of open green spaces, it’s important to organise time and space for your health. At first, Shanghai appears to restrict your ability to exercise and find mental peace. However, the city is surprisingly accommodating, with many conventional Western-style gyms and fitness facilities. Living in Shanghai is also an opportunity to experience traditionally Eastern approaches to mental and physical wellbeing, such as yoga and acupuncture. And, given the number of expats from around the globe living in Shanghai, there’s bound to be a group or league for your sport or exercise.
