AhealthyU supports the health and well-being of AU faculty and staff through integrated programs, education, and resources that encourages positive daily habits that fit your goals and lifestyle. Our goal is to provide you with the tools needed to make the best possible choices to live a balanced and healthy life.

This fall, AhealthyU is emphasizing the holistic approach to wellness and focusing on four pillars that can help you become healthier and happier.

Four Pillars of Wellness
Physical Emotional Intellectual Spiritual
Maintain overall physical health and engage in appropriate physical activity (e.g., stamina, strength, flexibility, healthy body composition). Have a positive self-concept, deal constructively with your feelings, and develop positive qualities (e.g., optimism, trust, self-confidence, determination, persistence, dedication). Pursue and retain knowledge, think critically about issues, make sound decisions, identify problems, and find solutions (e.g., common sense, creativity, curiosity). Develop a set of beliefs, principles, or values that give meaning or purpose to your life; to develop faith in something beyond yourself (e.g., religious faith, service to others).
