Always Learning

It is important to continue to learn new things throughout our lifetime.  It builds new neural pathways that keep our memories sharp and our brains young.

Habits and patterns of thinking and behavior can be hard to break so we can learn to think in new ways.  We also get caught up in the need for higher education to get a good job and make a livable income and forget what it’s like to learn just for the sake of knowledge.

Learning opportunities are everywhere.  Special interest classes are offered by colleges, community centers, county extension offices, churches etc.  We learn by reading and researching topics that interest us.  We can also learn by doing and experiencing.  Want to learn to identify native birds?  Find a field guide and a pair of binoculars and go bird watching.  Want to learn to apply special effects to your photos?  Learn everything you can about programs that will do this then start playing.  Learning can and should be fun.

Staying young isn’t about looking like you’re still thirty in your seventies.  It’s about having a healthy active mind that never stops learning.  So go out there, learn something new and don’t forget to have fun!

What are you learning?

    1. Thank you for the comment. You are right, life is a good time! I like to take little online classes just for fun, but I always print out the “certificates.” I’m trying to get enough to wallpaper the den. 🙂
