Adjusting to a new environment takes some time for your body to adapt to. With your focus on adapting to your new life, you may have neglected your health as well. Keep in mind these tips to prevent catching something during flu season!     Kid Germs It's no secret that when you're working with kids, you're more prone to catching a bug. We all remember our younger selves and the questionable and sticky things we got on our hands and shirts. Keep in mind that this can easily be transferred to you. When you're teaching kids in a confined classroom, there’s no escape from 'Kid Germs'. Try your best to limit direct contact with your students and promote healthy hygiene. You'll be doing yourself a favor and have an additional topic to fill your lesson plan!     Hand Sanitizer/Wet Wipes With any sudden stop on the metro or bus, your hand automatically shoots up to steady yourself.

It is important to note that living in China was quite a different experience 15-20 years ago, compared to how an international school teacher lives there now. The expat experience has vastly improved over the years. For example, now there are apps to help you talk Chinese to taxi drivers, back 10 years ago that just did not exist. On the news though, we are constantly hearing about the negative aspects of life living in a number of cities in China, namely the high levels of pollution and the negative effects it is having on people’s general health. Those negative things aside, there are still a bountiful number of positive aspects to living in China.
