Relax, Eat, Move and Sleep your way to a longer, healthier and happier life. This book is the solution to help you feel better than you ever have before.
Dr Rangan wrote this book to make good health accessible to all.
Based on cutting edge research of his own experiences serving as a doctor for nearly 20 years, The 4 Pillar Plan provides a simple actionable plan to help you feel fantastic.
The book goes beyond the sort of health advice we’ve all been reading about for so long – beyond the fad diets and the quick fix exercise programmes.
We have over complicated health – this book simplifies it.
The Four Pillars
Every part our body affects pretty much every other part. This book takes a full view of your health and well-being, one that considers every aspect of the your daily life.
By making small, achievable changes in the four key areas of your life, you can create and maintain good health – and avoid illness. What matters most is balance across all the things you do.
- Pillar 01 Relax
- Relaxation, or lack of it, is a huge problem these days. Modern life is stressful – e-mails, social media, work pressure, lack of work/life boundaries, looking after children as well as caring for elderly parents. Relaxation has NEVER been more important than it is today. In my book, I provide simple, actionable strategies to help you build relaxation into the busiest and most hectic of lives.
Pillar 02 Eat
What on earth should you eat to stay healthy? That is the question so many of my patients ask me every single day. The problem is that healthy eating has become incredibly complicated. Every week there is a new headline promising the latest food fix. In my book. I outline and simplify the principles of healthy eating that will work for you no matter what your dietary or ethical preference around food.
Pillar 03 Move
Modern levels of physical inactivity are having a detrimental effect on our health. Many people cite a lack of time or a lack of time to exercise. In my book, I share with you simple strategies to get more movement into your everyday lives and how to make it fun! Best of all, it doesn’t require you to join a gym or to dress up in special clothes!
Pillar 04 Sleep
We have infinite distractions these days to keep us from our beds and even when we do get there, many of us don’t get a full, rejuvenating night’s sleep. Over the past 16 years, I have seen that the majority of people with sleep issues are doing something in their lifestyles to untrain their natural ability to sleep. In my book, I share with you simple strategies to sleep better so you feel better.
