Studies have shown that learning throughout life is linked to greater satisfaction and optimism, and increased self-esteem and interaction with other people (see CONNECT).
Learning gives you a new goal to work towards and reaching this target can create a positive feeling of accomplishment.
So how can you KEEP LEARNING……
- Try something new.
- Rediscover an old interest or hobby.
- Sign up for that course.
- Take on a different responsibility at work.
- Fix a bike.
- Learn to play an instrument.
- Cook a new recipe.
Set a challenge you will enjoy achieving and feel the benefits.
