Six Pillars of Radiant Living

Students will benefit greatly by incorporating wellness into their daily lives early on.

To live radiantly as a student, you can use Dr. Ajmani’s six pillar framework as a guide:

  • Take inventory. Assess where you are in life and where you want to be in the next few years. This can help you get clear on what actions you need to take for your desired future.
  • Create empowering daily routines. What little actions can you do daily to help strengthen your mindset and energy? Stick to a routine that helps set you up for success.
  • Mindful movement. Connect with your body and your emotions. Pay attention to its signals.
  • Mindful eating. Be mindful of what you eat and try to take your meals calmly.
  • Setting boundaries. Prioritize what’s important and learn to say no.
  • Pause and take a moment to recognize your accomplishments every now and then. Practice positive self-talk.
