Symbios is exceptionally proud of our inaugural group, which stepped up to the challenge and committed their time and energy to forming lasting wellness habits over 70 days.

Lifestyle, as modeled in Symbios’ Seven Pillars of Health, is the foundation of health and wellness. The Seven Pillars of Health include restorative sleep, enriching nutrition, functional fitness, personal beautification, intellectual stimulation, spiritual growth, and cultivating loving relationships. These life-changing improvements in simple daily choices can strengthen our health and wellness. Read more to learn how you can experience the ultimate level of wellness by understanding and applying the seven pillars of health to your life.

The Seven Pillars of Health

  1. Restorative sleep is the cornerstone of a rejuvenated life. Getting adequate rest enhances cognitive function, mood, and overall well-being. By prioritizing your sleep, you can discover its profound impact on your daily life.
  2. Enriching nutrition feeds your body and soul. A nutrition plan that provides your body with the essential amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals is vital to living a full, healthy, fit, and beautiful life.
  3. Functional fitness will empower your body with how it was created to function by overcoming the common obstacles of time, distance, and weight. Physical strength, mobility, flexibility, power, and endurance are essential to negotiate life’s challenges.
  4. Personal beautification enhances your image for a more confident, radiant version of yourself. Take time each day to do something that makes you feel beautiful, whether it’s a self-care ritual, a creative pursuit, or preserving your youthful appearance. Finding joy in being yourself by embracing your God-given beauty is crucial to enjoying a vibrant life.
  5. Intellectual stimulation keeps our minds sharp and our memory accurate. Train your mind to think critically and carefully evaluate the circumstances of life by reading, researching, and debating with other brilliant minds.
  6. Spiritual growth reminds us that we are created in the image of God and helps connect us with our Creator. Daily nourishment of your soul promotes peace and initiates a harmonious balance between mind, body, and spirit.
  7. Cultivate loving relationships by developing healthy, vibrant, and nontoxic relationships with others by loving and caring for them how we want to be loved and cared for in our lives.

Symbios encourages you to improve small, recordable steps in each pillar for seventy days. This life changer is about more than achieving a short-term goal; it’s a promise to yourself that you will have a healthier, happier, and more fulfilled life.
