Learn something new to get your energy back

Learn something new to get your energy back

Want to live a happy and fulfilled life? According to research, the answer might involve constantly making the decision to learn new things. French lessons, anyone?

Studies have shown that exercising your brain can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease, but who would have thought it could lead to a happier outlook on life at the same time? Learning new information and skills is, in fact, a core need for psychological wellbeing. Taking the time to learn something new helps us not only build confidence and self-efficacy but it also frees us from the repetitive cycles our brains fall into when not stimulated enough.

Learning fuels our creativity, builds our knowledge and provides us with a great sense of fulfilment. Becoming so absorbed in an activity, also known as ‘flow’ or ‘being in the zone’, makes us lose track of time as well as our surroundings. Flow also, once we come out of it, leaves us feeling energised with a great sense of satisfaction because we’ve increased our skill level or achieved something.

Studies have also shown that experiencing something novel releases dopamine which not only leaves us feeling good, but also helps us remember the experience and what was learnt much clearer later on.

More Reasons to Learn:

  • Increased confidence – learning a new skill helps build confidence and faith in your own ability.
  • Personal development – learning new skills can help you find out more about yourself like your likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, your character and interests.
  • Good for your career – whether the skill is career related or not, learning new skills help you create a well-rounded character and expands your mind to be creative in your approach to your job.
  • Great for your brain health – as we mentioned above, learning is excellent at keeping your mind stimulated and sharp.
  • Increased independence – the more you know how to do, the less you’ll need to depend on others.

The best part? What you decide to learn can be free! You don’t have to enrol in a class or obtain a degree – it can be as simple as trying a new recipe, reading an insightful book, trying your hand at knitting or surfing, or even gardening. Whatever takes your fancy, do it!

    Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work
    due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell
    someone!

    Amazing blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there
    that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions?
    Thank you!

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad
    and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so
    she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
