6 Creative Ways to Keep Learning

Read

 There’s definitely power in reading. Consider revisiting some of your favorites. Try reading a few classics from the library. Biographies of historical figures can be informative. And if you’re in the need of literary discussion, why not join or start a book club.

Use multimedia

Books aren’t your only source for new data. Try catching up on information while on the go by listening to podcasts from your iPod. Try listening to an audiobook while exercising. Consider making a list of educational blogs that you can read daily. Or try watching an informative documentary on your next movie night.

Back in the habit

Some people who want to continue their education consider getting a degree, but that can be daunting (and expensive). Why not start off small by attending seminars in the field of your interest. Also consider taking a class at a local community center, community college, or university. You’ll get your feet wet without being overwhelmed.

Help others

It’s believed that you learn the most about yourself while you’re helping others. So why not consider volunteering at an animal shelter or a community center. You could also try being a mentor. If you want to learn more about a particular field do some research and see if any internships are offered in your area.

Make learning a game

Learning doesn’t have to be a chore. Consider playing puzzles or memory games daily to increase your brain power. Try expanding your vocabulary by learning a new word every day or by completing a crossword puzzle daily. These are all creative ways to keep learning.

Learn through hobbies

 Learning a new craft can be a great intellectual challenge. You can read up on your hobby; learn more about its history. Staying active and consistent with your hobby can also teach you self-discipline. It can also help you meet new people with similar interests.
