Continuing with our ‘8 Dimensions of Wellness Series,’ we are joined today by Allison's mom who is a professor in the College of Education. We dive into our 8th and final dimension - Intellectual Wellness. Dr. Saundra Shillingstad believes that good intellectual wellness means the cognitive capacity to show up in the world as your authentic self.
Saundra grew up in a household that encouraged creativity, curiosity and self-exploration. This support fostered a healthy home environment that allowed her to feel safe to be herself and do what she loved.
On her lifelong pursuit of diverse real-world experiences and knowledge acquisition, Saundra has discovered many tools over the years that help keep her in a stable mindset. She shares her journey from living in a state of chaos to creating a life of peace, love and contribution.
We talk about being present and pursuing your own path. Through our conversation, we realize how vital maintaining intellectual wellness is to the building the vibrant, healthy, balanced life of your dreams.
