We want you to take care of yourself so that you can take care of others, learning to love yourself and passing on healthy habits and setting a good example.

At Fundación MAPFRE we help you to put health at the forefront of your priorities. We work to improve your fitness by encouraging healthy eating, exercise and sufficient rest. These are three basic factors for preventing non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes and high blood pressure. We also stress the importance of prevention and knowing how to take rapid action if someone is choking, or suffering a stroke or cardiac arrest. We not only seek to prevent this from occurring in the first place, we also want everyone to know what to do in such situations until the emergency services reach the scene.

Good health also means striking a balance between your mental and physical state. It has been proven that happiness is linked to better physical fitness and that stress can wreak havoc on your health. To make sure you always remember how important a positive attitude can be, we have prepared a Rules of Happiness guide and Rules on how to manage stress. Have these tips handy at all times.

We worry about you, your family and your friends. Take care of your health and their health.

Strokes

A stroke gives no warning. It is a silent disease. However, studies show that 80% of cases are preventable. Encouraging healthy lifestyle habits and teaching about how to detect it on time are the keys to our STROKE campaign - Prevent, learn, act.
