Intellectual components of wellness
- "It is better to stretch and challenge our minds with intellectual and creative pursuits than to become self-satisfied and unproductive."
- "It is better to identify potential problems and choose appropriate courses of action based on available information than to wait, worry and contend with major concerns
National Wellness Institute
Intellectual wellness is rooted in one's creative, stimulating, growth-oriented activities. It involves learning new skills, and sharing that knowledge and skills with others.
A well person cherishes intellectual growth and stimulation, and taps into the wide array of intellectual and cultural activities that exist within the educational and larger community, the worksite, other individuals and a myriad of written resources. They keep abreast of current issues and ideas, pursue personal interests and explore issues related to problem solving, creativity and learning.
Being intellectually well allows you to expand the gifts that are uniquely yours, bringing a richness to your life and the lives of those around you.
