  • Eat—Consume quality foods that are smartly prepared with some intermittent fasting.
  • Exercise—Move your body or take a sauna bath every other day.
  • Domain/environment—Clean the air in your space with filters and plants and filter your drinking water.
  • Social engagement—Engage in activity with others.

Your body needs all of these things to thrive. Adopt some aspect of each of these five pillars to maximize your wellness.
