Intellectual Wellness is more than being successful in your academics. It is also about expanding your knowledge and skills outside of the classroom and challenging your mind with stimulating and creative pursuits. These pursuits should include personal interests, such as reading books and magazines, writing or learning how to speak another language or play a musical instrument. Staying up-to-date with current issues and ideas is also an important part of expanding your intellectual wellness.
