Try a different cuisine and you’ll learn something new about tastes and textures and culture. Go to a museum and learn something new about art and history. Volunteer for a non-profit and you’ll learn something new about helping people, about issues and challenges that confront others, maybe even about how truly fortunate you are!
The idea is to stretch yourself, make your mind and body and spirit work a little harder or in a different way. The benefits? You’ll not only gain a new skill, add to your education and develop your own abilities but also get a self-esteem boost by busting out of your “education rut.” Go ahead—exercise those “little gray cells!” They need it!
