Positive Lifestyle Program

 Posted on Jan 24, 2019

Positive Lifestyle Program is a program that provides weekly group interaction sessions which will help you to improve your ability to make healthy lifestyle choices. We'll teach you to understand how your overall health is affected by various behavioral, emotional, and social factors, and give you the tools to make positive changes in your life. 

About the Positive Lifestyle Program

 By the end of this 2-month program, participants should be able to:

  • Be aware of negative lifestyle choices and coping skills to deal with them
  • Improve eating habits
  • Identify patterns of unproductive thoughts and learn practical skills to defeat them
  • Learn practical tactics to deal with strong emotions
  • Promote behavioral changes in eating habits
  • Recognize the importance of physical activity and nutrition in long-term to improve health

How it works

The program will be limited to one group of around 12 participants, but we aim to run the program in batches on a regular basis thereafter. Participants are selected on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

To be able to benefit from the program, English language fluency/understanding are required. 

Timing and venue

The Positive Lifestyle sessions will take place between February 11th and April 8th, 2019. The sessions will be held in the KAUST Health Conference room 1, every Monday from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. 

Please note that there are no sessions during the last week of March due to the University break. We request that you commit to missing no more than one session in the 2-month program to ensure that you and the other participants get as much out of the program as possible.



As a service to the community, the majority of the program costs are subsidized by KAUST Health. Participants will be charged the heavily discounted price of 500 SAR per participant for 8-weeks.
