Neglect of one’s intellectual well-being – the self’s need for mental stimulation and growth throughout life – may not lead to dire consequences, but to say that it is less likely to be life-threatening than other forms of well-being, does not take away from its importance in a balanced and overall healthy life.

Relevant key concepts with respect to immediate and life-long intellectual well-being would include, but are not limited to:

  • Open-minded
  • Expanding knowledge
  • Scholastic, cultural and community activities
  • Continuing education

Activities conductive to intellectual stimulation and growth may be categorized as:

  • Single event (reading a book, participating in a book club)
  • Short-term (attending a lecture series or training event)
  • Longer-term (pursuing an advanced degree)
