• Intellectual Resources and Information

    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 the 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.
