April 2014: Intellectual & Social Wellbeing
Don’t be fooled!
Welcome to the April issue of TotalWellbeing! We figured that April would be the perfect month to introduce our next two topics of the year, intellectual and social wellbeing. Your mind is an amazing and unique tool that needs stimulation in order to grow and prosper. Interacting with other people is a great way to give your mind just that sort of stimulation. Be careful though, as our social connections, who we spend our time with, and how they affect the way we think is a force that shapes who we are as individuals in ways you may never have thought about before.
In case you missed our blog last month, we saw another insightful post by Dr. Mines on the importance of positive mind states. This was invaluable information showing that through guiding your thoughts and maintaining a positive outlook can help you see the good in any situation, and help seize opportunities others may miss. This month keep your eyes open for a post from our very own human resources specialist Daniél Kimlinger, and as always please use this chance to let us know what you think and what you’d like to see more of by commenting there!
To your total wellbeing,
The MINES Team
