As children, we continually discovered new information, learning to read, riding a bike, looking under stones for insects. During our school years, we took tests and participated in extracurricular activity. Then something happened; Adulthood.
We went from being curious children to adults fixed to a working schedule and lost the natural capacity and desire to learn. Learning new skills can be useful, but continuing to learn throughout life can improve and maintain our mental wellbeing. Learning can boost self-confidence and self-esteem, help build a sense of purpose, and help us connect with others. Learning should be fun! To learn something new is exciting; the world is full of fascinating skills and talents. And the process of discovering them, not just the end result, is enjoyable and rewarding.
BOOSTS SELF-ESTEEM: Learning new information and abilities helps build our sense of self-adequacy and the confidence in what we can achieve.
LEARNING FUELS CREATIVITY: Adapting to new things can trigger our thoughts and open our minds to what is possible. The more you work on taking in new things you’ll learn easier and faster.
SETS A GOOD EXAMPLE: If you need your children and friends and family to see the benefit in continuous learning, show them how it’s done!
EMPOWERING: Learning gives you the information to help you make better-educated choices throughout everyday life. Challenging yourself to step out of your comfort zone will give you a great sense of accomplishment
LEARNING GIVES YOU ACCESS TO NEW AND DIFFERENT OPPORTUNITIES: You’ll generally have something to talk about. The more you know, the more probable you are to discover something simi-lar with others.
