How important are grades to my intellectual wellness? If I have poor grades does it mean I do not have good intellectual wellness? And if so, what does intellectual wellness look like once I graduate from school?

Intellectual wellness involves engaging in activities that stimulate the mind. You can promote intellectual wellness by pursuing hobbies, staying curious, and challenging yourself academically. Grades are only one of many metrics used to measure intellectual wellness. Keeping up your grades is important, but grades do not determine the entirety of your intellectual well-being. Other questions to consider around intellectual wellness are: am I interested in what I am learning in school, why or why not? Are the classes I am taking too easy or too hard for me? Is there a new skill I want to learn, and if so how would I go about learning it? Intellectual wellness stays relevant long after you graduate school, as you will continue to learn new skills, ideas and ways of thinking outside of the classroom.
