Tips for Intellectual Wellness

Improve Your Study Skills
Learning new information about the way that your mind processes information can be a vital tool while attending college. Understanding the way(s) that you learn best will help you be successful while absorbing new information and solidifying positive study habits.

Read For Fun
Reading for fun can be hard when you are spending most of your time in a textbook with required reading for classes. Finding time, even if it is a small amount, to read, can improve your intellect and influence your mind to think about other information that you do not regurgitate from an academic textbook.

Practice Brain Games
Working through puzzles and brain games helps to increase brain power. Activities such as crosswords or sudoku puzzles can help increase intellectual wellness by learning to problem solve and test your brain's ability. 

Learn A New Skill
Take time to learn a new skill or activity. We challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and stimulate your brain from change. This can be anything, such as cooking, crafting, playing an instrument, dancing, or anything you enjoy. Learning a new skill is a fun and interactive way to increase your intellectual wellness.
