Abstract / Summary
Intellectual well-being is important to a sense of overall wellness. The intellectual dimension of wellness, although often overlooked and undervalued, is extremely important in coping with stress and living a fulfilling life. Intellectual well-being can be difficult to describe, but it is essentially related to how interested your clients are in learning new skills, expanding their knowledge, thinking critically, seeking out new and interesting challenges, maintaining a sense of creativity and curiosity, searching for lifelong learning opportunities and stimulating mental activities, and being open to new ideas. If your clients are not exhibiting these characteristics, they may need to develop more effective intellectual wellness habits. When clients begin developing intellectual well-being habits, they begin to exhibit greater participation in creative, scholastic, cultural and community-based activities. The Intellectual Well-Being Workbook is designed to help your clients enhance existing intellectual wellness traits and develop new attitudes that will improve their intellectual health.Living an intellectually healthy existence sounds easy, but is often very difficult to accomplish in everyday life. Many people experience stress in their lives when they are faced with new situations, exposed to people who are different from themselves and frightened by new ideas and novel ways to approach situations in their lives. Intellectually well people find that they are able to approach new ideas and situations with enthusiasm and are not restricted to only that which has been done before. They are creative and always looking for ways to improve themselves and their future. They are curious and approach life with passionate desire to understand and embrace opportunities to learn new things. They will have the tools and techniques to cope with difficult life situations through being open-minded, able to pick up on new ideas, and interested in improving themselves. The Intellectual Well-Being Workbook is designed to help your clients understand how the many ways intellectual well-being can reduce stress and enhance their overall life satisfaction.The seven sections include:Open to New Ideas Lifelong Learning Thinking Skills Creative Thinking Critical Thinking Mental Sharpness Independent Thinking
