When was the last time you took a really good class? In order to remain vibrant, we must keep our mental faculties actively engaged. One way to do this is to commit to ongoing learning. Getting yourself set up for continuous learning experiences has positive benefits and can improve your quality of life.
To receive the maximum benefit, select courses that are fun, challenging and that pique your interest. If you’re in the process of identifying your purpose, taking classes can inspire you. Begin exploring. One seminar could be the spark to ignite your inner light. If you’re thinking you don’t have time or that you’re not sure what type of class to register for, start looking at the benefits.
When I was teaching in the public school system, we were required to submit documentation of our ongoing learning. Seminars, workshops and courses had to be related to our certification. That same approach may work to your advantage. Many boomers are looking to discover their purpose in retirement. Rather than selecting random courses, consider searching for classes or programs related to a particular field of interest. That way, you’re gaining knowledge and experience that could help you hone in on your purpose.
A Few Advantages of Lifelong Learning
• Keeps your mind sharp
• Builds self-confidence
• Keeps you current in your field
• Introduces you to new people
• Provides fodder for conversation
Recognizing the benefits can motivate you to dive in. And from that point, there’ll be no turning back!
Personally, I’m in a perpetual learning mode. As an Inspired Aging™ Motivational Speaker and Holistic Wellness coach, it’s important that I remain current in my area of expertise.
While there are advantages to traditional onsite learning, online education is convenient and interactive, all from the comforts of your home. And here are many choices to select from. Dancing. Creative writing. Cake decorating. Interior design. Whether you want to learn something new or accomplish a dream, the possibilities are endless. Continuous learning improves your quality of life and enables you to view yourself as relevant.
There’s no better time than now to prepare for the second half of your life. You know that college degree that you’ve been thinking about since you were 21? Or that certificate you’ve been considering that will advance your career? Go get it! But be mindful of how you’re going to use your new credentials to make the world a better place.
