What Did YOU Learn Today?
Learning should be for life. Sometimes, many of us can make the mistake of thinking that learning is reserved only for children and the young, whether it’s a toddler learning to walk for the first time or a college student with their head in a book.
But as adults we need to be learning and growing, too. Every moment of every day we are being presented with new and important lessons. These lessons might have a number of things to teach us. They might teach us more about who we are as a person, what we are capable of, what our limits are or what is most important (or not) to us. We learn from our successes, from our failures…there is so much to learn from our relationships, not to mention everything that there is still left to learn about the world and everything in it.
If you think about it, our lives are an endless pursuit of answers and new questions.
So how can YOU take action to ensure that your learning never comes to an end?
At the end of each day, perhaps as you are getting into bed, why not take a few minutes to think about what the day has taught you. This will not only help to keep you in the habit of actively seeking out opportunities to learn, but will also push you to find proof of positive things happening in your life. This will help to keep those positive energies flowing, resulting in more days filled with learning, gratitude and success.
So here you are, 10 suggested questions to consider at the end of each day, to boost both your happiness AND brain!
