Podcast Episode 121: The Pillars of Health and How a Holistic Approach Promotes Optimal Well-Being

There are several key pillars that contribute to a person’s overall health. Just like the pillars of a building, if one is broken, the entire structure becomes unstable!

In today’s episode, we’re sharing what I consider to be those critical pillars of health, how they’re interconnected, and why a holistic approach is essential when it comes to promoting a comprehensive and balanced lifestyle. From physical and mental health to spiritual and financial well-being, this episode is full of valuable insight!
