July’s Challenge: Learn

July’s Challenge: We challenge you to create a new learning habit.

Wellness is about more than taking care of your body—you also have to take care of your mind and take care to your exercise your mind. Games like crosswords and puzzles can help you improve your working memory, but you need to engage your brain in longer-term, challenging activities to really gain improvements in areas like reasoning, problem solving, short and long term memory, attention to detail, etc. Exercising these areas of your mind has been shown to slow age-related cognitive decline, maintain social skills, and boost self-confidence. Research has also shown that a year of formal education can add half a year or more to your life.

So what can you do?

  • Take a class. Many universities offer courses through Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) for free.
  • Try writing or journaling.
  • Pick up a new hobby.
  • Read.
  • Adopt the 5-Hour Rule.

We challenge you this month to create a new learning habit. Choose one that is right-sized for your existing commitments—commit to reading every day, take a class, learn a new skill, etc. Track your progress and share it with us at the end of the month. CEEK a Better Way®!
