Intellectual wellness is the ability to gain and grow knowledge, critical thinking, and learning new skills/ideas to create potential for sharing with others and use it for betterment of community. There is nothing a healthy brain loves more than engaging in creative and stimulating activity to fuel the life-long learner!
We can learn through a variety of experiences:
- reading writing, sharing and exploration
- Observing what is around you
- Listening & Questioning
- Finding applications for material learned in the classroom
- Staying current with world affairs/news
- Exposing yourself to new experiences (e.g. arts, theater)
- Reading Books & Newspapers
- Staying interested in community activities
- Expand the knowledge of others
FCS believes we are life long learners! When we strive for intellectual wellness, we are developing personal resources that work together with the other realms of development for a balanced life. Some of the ways we can achieve this are by learning:
accountability, reliability, personal growth, good time management skills, setting goals, displaying effective decision making, and the value of knowledge and education.
