Check out what kind of classes are local to your area, and try them out. These can be for cooking, sewing, painting, photography, jewelry making, music, and more! This is a fantastic way to try some new things and see what you enjoy most. Then, when you know your favorite, you can mark that scheduled class down in your calendar, and that will make that time sacred. Taking classes is an awesome opportunity to discover a new passion for yourself.
Rekindle Old Hobbies
Have you lost touch with a hobby you used to really enjoy? Get back into it again! Pull out those supplies that are collecting dust, or get some new ones, and find your joy doing something that you already know makes you happy. This gives you a little more flexibility to set the time aside and still work within your busy schedule. We should always make sure we never lose sight of even the littlest things that bring us joy. If you love doing something, make sure it’s a priority in your life.
Join A Local Club Or Group
This can be online or in person—whichever works for you. Lots of people have the same things that they enjoy doing, and it can be even more fun to do it as a group! You can learn from each other, and have the opportunity to make new friends in the process. Book clubs, Facebook groups, community gardening, etc. are all great examples of using a group to do things that make you happy. Oftentimes, these groups plan special get-togethers that you can prepare for and schedule ahead of time.
These are just a few really general ways you can do what makes you happy, and make the time for it! Feel free to use these as a springboard to really get creative with discovering all kinds of things you can do to keep a little bit of joy in your daily life.
It Helps You Connect To People
Taking classes online or in person is a great way to meet new people with similar interests! You can get to know each other, study/practice together, and have new experiences together. After you’ve taken the time to learn this new thing, it will also help you find more opportunities to use it! This can help you meet new people as well. For example, say you take a cake baking class and you really enjoyed it… Well, you can use your new skill for local parties and connect with that many more people! The more you’re able to connect with others, the more doors open up to new opportunities and experiences.
It Creates Personal Growth
Learning new things helps you keep your mind open to new thoughts and experiences. When this happens, you grow that much more as a person by being able to see things from multiple perspectives. By having this mindset, you will become a better problem solver, and be able to think things through much more objectively. You also will feel very proud and accomplished when you’ve finally mastered whatever you’re learning. This also means that you can grow even more by teaching other people what you’ve learned. Teaching others also helps you learn even more!
It Improves Brain Function
When you continue to learn more and more new things, your brain actually creates new pathways and shortcuts between different neurons! This not only can help prevent dementia, it can also make it easier to learn OTHER new things! Learning new things also helps the white matter in your brain become denser—which improves the speed at which your mind can process new things. So by continuously learning new skills and things, you’re actually helping yourself with all other aspects of your life! A strong and fast brain makes lots of things much easier.
When it comes to learning new things, the possibilities for growth are endless based on what it is you learn! Take some time to figure out a few things you’d like to learn, and make a goal of learning at least one of those things within a year. You’ll be so glad you did!
