The 4 Pillars Of Health

So, yesterday I talked about how to build, or perhaps better yet, continually tinker, your own framework around health over time.

Here’s the 4-pillar framework I prefer:

Nutrition, Strength, Love, & Calm.

This is directly credited to Paul Chek’s approach. He calls them ‘The 4 Doctors’:

Dr. Diet, Dr. Movement, Dr. Happy, & Dr. Quiet.

His book, ‘How To Eat, Move, & Be Healthy‘, or the ‘Living 4D’ podcast, will tell you more about that.

Sometime I have clients work through this one, a 12-pillar framework called ‘The Circle of Life’:

From the Institute for Integrative Nutrition

The point is that however many buckets you choose to divide Wellness up into, working on them one at a time is very helpful.

In fact, no matter how you divide them up, they are always interconnected.

Thus, when you start to take better care of yourself in one area, what happens is, the others start to improve as well.

I’ll explain a little bit more about this tomorrow.
