Lotus 5 Pillars of Health
As part of our Lotus rebranding in 2019, we explored how we can continue to to support our community towards optimal health. This led to the development of the Lotus 5 Pillars of Health.
The 5 Pillars represent the aspects of health that we focus on at Lotus to promote health and wellbeing. For each pillar of health, we encourage you to take a few minutes and make a note (written or mental) about things that you are doing well and areas of your life where you could improve. It is important to acknowledge your wins and recognise the areas which need more attention.
