Learn Something New
Neurons in our brain have the ability to physically change themselves when faced with new experiences. This ability is called neuroplasticity. As we are exposed to new areas, tasks, information or experiences, neural pathways are formed and existing ones are reshaped. This will continue throughout our entire lives as we learn. So today we encourage you to learn about something new. Pick a topic that interests you, or has always boggled your mind and spend a good 10 minutes learning more about it. To go the extra mile commit to learning a new skill such as playing an instrument, a language, or knitting.
Learn more about the brain and how it is changed when you learn something new in the following care of The Huffington Post.
