ASDA’s Wellness Initiative encourages you to make well-being a priority with a focus on these five dimensions of your life: Emotional, Physical, Intellectual, Occupational, and Environmental. Wellness stems from focusing on each of these dimensions and finding a balanced way of addressing all of them, as needed.

intro: WELLNESS SERIES
Colorado ASDA just launched our brand-new wellness series focused on each of the five dimensions of wellness. Acknowledging the individuality of wellness, we interviewed students and faculty that uniquely embody the five dimensions.
CHAPTER 1: INTELLECTUAL WELLNESS
Intellectual wellness encourages us to engage in creative and mentally stimulating activities. See how Rachael Yancey nurtures curiosity and lifelong learning through reading.
CHAPTER 2: EMOTIONAL WELLNESS
Did you know that 52% of dental students self report moderate to severe anxiety? Listen to Niv Baskaran open up and talk about how she has overcome her anxiety in dental school.
CHAPTER 3: physical WELLNESS
“Like other people, at the end of their day they maybe watch a movie or read a book. For me I enjoy going to the gym and get my stress out through exercise.” - Hamilton Pennywell. Check out how these CU students stay in tune with their physical health!
Environmental wellness refers to your relationships to your surroundings, both your immediate surroundings and the world at large. Check out how these CU students find harmony with their environment!
CHAPTER 5: occupational WELLNESS
Occupational wellness refers to developing work-life balance, managing working relationships and having enthusiasm for your job. See how CU Faculty member, Armantine Lehn, finds personal satisfaction and enrichment through her work-life!
