Your health comes first
What do we need to be happy? Health, love, challenges, adventures… Most of the time we forget that a healthy lifestyle is the way to achieve fulfilment in life. Feeling good both inside and out is the first step towards happiness. It gives us tonnes of energy and makes us feel like we are capable of just about anything. A Protur Hotels we want to promote good lifestyle choice-making amongst our employees.
We are all part of one big family and, as such, we take care of one another. With this being said, we have developed a partnership with the Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC), Your Health Comes First, which provides tips on how to lead a healthier lifestyle. We focus on basic aspects like nutrition, physical health and avoiding harmful products like cigarettes and alcohol. All in all, shedding light on these aspects brings about positive benefits for our health.
With the aim of providing our employees with useful information on how to improve their habits, we offer courses on tobacco detoxing, illness prevention, and maintaining good habits for leading a healthier lifestyle. With this being said, and following the AECC guidelines, here are the basic four points we should practice.
