Learning new things can help us build our confidence, meet new people and give us a greater sense of wellbeing.
I love learning – it keeps me interested in life and, at times, has given me a sense of purpose. Some of the happiest times in my life have been when I’ve been travelling, studying or attending conferences or workshops. I really do love being engrossed in new experiences.
But learning doesn’t have to happen in formal settings or other places. Learning can happen in our everyday lives if we are open to it.
We can learn from choosing to try something different. A few examples might include trying a new food, taking a different route on our way to work or doing something at a different time of day. We might also choose to look up information, read a book or article or watch a video about something we’re interested in.
I love watching my son learning so much all of the time as he’s constantly having new experiences.
This week, I’ve learned how to schedule Facebook and Instagram posts. This means that I can make sure I post the advent calendar AND I am able to be more present with my son in the morning. The added bonus is that it’s given me a sense of achievement.
Today, I’m going to pick up a book on parenting that was recommended to me (and manifesting a cup of tea to go with it).
