|Thought of the day – Intellectual Curiosity|
|I want to talk to you about what I consider to be the key cog in being satisfied and a critical part of staying interested and engaged in life. It’s called intellectual curiosity. Let me begin with a brief definition. Intellectual curiosity is a term used to describe one’s desire to invest time and energy into learning more about a person, place, thing or concept. I must confess that I personally have a huge intellectual curiosity, and as a result, I find myself constantly trying to figure things out. The phrase Curious George comes to mind. Today I’m asking you to think about this notion and how it fits into your life.
If you don’t currently consider yourself a curious person, I suggest you begin to experiment with this idea. A healthy intellectual curiosity serves us well in many ways. It stimulates your brain, exercises your research skills, and in the process, makes you a smarter and more interesting person. It doesn’t matter what you decide to become curious about as long as you have some honest initial interest and a willingness to investigate. In my opinion, participating in this little endeavor is a great wellness prescription for your life. A healthy intellectual curiosity should be a regular mental exercise. Just like physical fitness, it will shape and strengthen the respective target and create a healthier and more wellness-oriented life. So, if you want to add a little spice to your life, I highly recommend you take action and nurture some healthy intellectual curiosity!
Wishing You Great Health,
|Joke of the day|
|One day a man went to an auction. While there, he bid on an exoticparrot. He really wanted this bird, so he got caught up in the bidding. He kept on bidding, but kept getting outbid, so he bid higher and higher and higher. Finally, after he bid way more than he intended, he won the bid. The price was high but the fine bird was finally his!
As he was paying for the parrot, he said to the Auctioneer, "I sure hope this parrot can talk. I would hate to have paid this much for it, only to find out that he can’t talk!"
"Don’t worry," said the Auctioneer, "He can talk. Who do you think kept bidding against you?"
|Have a great day!
