The Pillars of Health

Season #4

For June, we’re kicking off a new podcast series all about health. To start us off, I’m covering the Pillars of Health, extending beyond just physical wellness to include mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. While it’s likely that you’re familiar with these concepts, my hope is that you’ll find something that piques your curiosity and inspires you to make a small, positive change toward bettering your health. 

Join me to learn about the five pillars:

  • Movement
    • Engage in any form of movement that makes you feel good, strong, and capable.
    • It doesn’t have to be intense exercise, find what you enjoy.
    • Consistency is key.
    • Make it fun! Try listening to your favorite podcast or find a YouTube workout to follow.
    • Remember to start small.
  • Sunlight
    • Exposing yourself to natural light early in the morning helps to regulate your circadian rhythms, which control your sleep/wake cycles.
    • Think of it as a free boost to start your day.
  • Nourishment
    • Nourish your body in a way that feels good for you.
    • Consider not just food, but also what you read and the media you consume. Nourishment includes your mind, body, and soul.
    • Listen to your body’s cues.
  • Connection
    • Humans are inherently wired for social connection.
    • Maintaining strong relationships is essential for emotional and mental well-being.
    • Spend quality time with loved ones and supportive people.
    • Foster self-awareness and self-compassion through connection with yourself.
    • Prioritize quality connections over quantity.
  • Sleep
    • Sleep is crucial for your body’s functions.
    • Establish a bedtime routine that promotes relaxation, such as reading, meditating, gentle stretching, and limiting screen time.
    • Start with improving your sleep, as the other four pillars will be easier to change if you have a good sleep routine.
