Fourth out of your 5-a-day: KEEP LEARNING

learnStudies 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.
