Introduction to Intellectual Well-being

Let’s talk about intellectual well-being. Intellectual well-being encourages
participation and mentally stimulating and creative activities. Intellectual
well-being is not just limited to the classroom.
This means that intellectual well-being encompasses any activity that stimulates
your mind. This means whether you’re working on the next great novel or
solving a math proof, meeting with a professor to learn about their area of
interest and sharing your passions, searching for the inspiration for your
next artistic masterpiece, recording the next big hit, or perhaps you’re engineering a new
building. All of these are examples of ways that you can develop your
intellectual well-being. Intellectual well-being also encompasses the ability to think critically, reason objectively, and explore new ideas and different
points of view. Intellectual well-being emphasizes lifelong learning and
inspires curiosity. It also asks you to ask yourself the question “What nourishes my mind?” So whether it is sharing your ideas with others or going to a
presentation to hear a new take on a concept or idea, or simply engaging in a
lively debate or conversation with your friends, intellectual well-being is about
being open to learning and being respectfully challenged. So you’re probably wondering what
resources and services are available to help foster intellectual well-being. Well,
don’t worry– we’re going to share some of our top
tips for navigating this dimension of well-being next.
