Wellbeing Online

Intellectual

Intellectual Wellbeing reflects our degree of openness to new ideas, propensity to challenge ourselves to think critically, inclination to nourish our creativity and curiosity, and motivation to master new skills. Intellectual wellbeing can be enhanced through life long integration of enjoyable, thought-provoking, and imaginative mental activities.

Continuing to learn about the world around us and allowing ourselves to grow from the integration of this new knowledge into our life can enhance our intellectual wellbeing.  For instance, learning about a new culture or philosophy increases not only one's intellectual wellbeing, but spiritual wellbeing as well.

Mind Mapping

Expanding  your mind is easier when you organize your thoughts, breaking ideas down into smaller parts, making connections between topics, and incorporate new information with existing information. 

The Webinar above with WSU librarian Holly Luetkenhaus shows you how to use this technique to your advantage.
