You read the title correctly. Yes, the learning experience is not only meant for studying or honing your knowledge for your career. But, we usually have a myth, and by listening to the word, the next name comes in our mind, i.e., Procrastination. It feels like no, I have learned till now, just stop, and I know you’re talking about some online courses, scholar work, getting a degree, or just accomplishing more skills.
It’s essential to learn in our career path, but what about life?
Why is learning important?
According to OECD ( Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development), a study titled, ‘Understanding the Brain: the Birth of a Learning Science‘ states that Learning can be an effective way to delay the acceleration of neurodegenerative diseases in our brain.
The more, there are opportunities for older and elderly people to continue learning (whether through adult education, work, or social activities), the higher the chances of the proper functioning of the brain in the long term.
Now, here I have explored a few common areas apart from the academic where we don’t think from our mind but we do from our heart. Let’s explore
Art entails numerous classification, but here I’m referring to, in simple words, painting, sketching, or crafts. Art is beautiful, especially when it comes to human hands. During our free time, like our hobby or maybe from the perspective of art lovers, we immerse ourselves in art. It’s a widespread activity by humans.
So, if you are passionate about art then learning about art is itself beautiful. To know about different art exist in world or different type of tools. Art is itself a subject to know which deeps dives into numerous forms which you don’t even aware about.
Culinary skills can be found at every home because we’re born to eat. A passionate cook can’t be well passionate if the cook is not passionate to learn more about cooking. To know about types of cuisines exist in different countries or different cultures. How about learning a different style of cooking around the world?
Learning about cuisines for a passionate cook seems very interesting and delicious, right?
Are you a listener or a singer? Well, music is for everyone. Different culture entails different music. If you only know the music which is in your region or country then you must be missing so much.
Learning about music is a lot more fun even if you change your playlists to some different songs and get to know about more some unique music tunes. It would be so much fun.
Fit body prospers a fit mind. Most of the time, fitness confines only to go for gym, doing some exercise with weights or cardio. Sometimes, we are surrounded to most repetitive process but if we open ourselves then we find many practices around the world for fitness like Taichi, Parkour and many more. Link
Aha! Travelling, a globetrotter is the most passionate learner in world. Do you know why? Because being a globetrotter, you need to explore the world. To learn about different cultures, countries, languages or many more.
Learning in traveling is obvious. Even as a traveler, we don’t realize that we’re learning, but yes, it is a part of learning. If you’re not learning/explore, then are you a traveler?
Dance, an art form that takes our breath away, and we make the moves. Dance, like languages, there are different forms of dance that exist in different cultures. Only one dance form can make you a good dancer, but being best, you need to know about various types. Learning is the best way to be the best dancer.
I hope, I have broken your myth of learning only at an academic level. Learning can excite you if you want to learn from your heart so I have stated many reasons for you to explore and increase your learning. So, what are you waiting for? Even in this quarantine, you can make your future goal by learning what your heart looks for and live significantly
