Join Healthy IU's mindfulness program.
  • More energy: Movement throughout the day recharges your mind and body. Add a little to your day by participating in Climb IU! In this fun, universitywide challenge, you'll track either stairs climbed or active minutes alongside thousands of other IU employees and spouses. And you need to fuel your body with fresh, healthy foods! Bring a friend and stop by an IUPUI Fresh Produce Market to find a variety of local produce.
  • Weight loss: Get group support and learn about nutrition, physical activity and lifestyle skills in the online, 16-week Prevent Type 2 Diabetes program. Meet with the Healthy IU registered dietitian to explore any food topic you're curious about, including how to lose weight and still enjoy what you eat.
  • Less stress: Learn techniques for creating a mindfulness practice and address stressful situations effectively with the 10-week Mindful Way to Stress Reduction class. Drop in for Mid-Day Mindfulness whenever your schedule allows, and come away with a bite-sized mindfulness practice to help you feel refreshed.

Healthy IU is Indiana University's workplace wellness program that offers programs and services throughout the year. Visit healthy.iu.edu or contact healthyu@indiana.edu for more information.
