New Year’s resolutions, although sometimes hard to keep, are one of the best ways to make sure your next year is better than your last. So, what goals should you set yourself to make 2020 your best year yet, and give yourself a brighter future? We say, forget setting yourself unrealistic goals – there’s no better way to improve yourself than to learn something new!
You might think we’re a little biased, but we’ve seen how studying really can change your life. Here are three reasons why you should make studying your 2020 New Year’s resolution.
1. Exercise your brain
Contrary to popular belief, studying isn’t just for children and young people. No matter how old you are, it’s important to keep your brain happy and healthy. Just like any other muscle, brains need to be kept active and engaged to be at their best. If our brains aren’t exercised, they lose strength over time. Studying is one of the best ways to keep the brain stimulated and healthy. Don’t just take our word for it – the science is on our side! Researchers believe that studying and learning new skills regularly might even help prevent us from developing neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s in the future.
2. Improve your career opportunities
New years are all about new beginnings and opportunities to improve. What better way to make a positive change in your life than to change your career? Whether you want to advance in your current field or change careers entirely, studying will set you on the right path. Completing courses sets you apart from your colleagues, and helps you stand out to an employer. Even if you’re just taking a course to learn new things and not to advance in your career, listing that certificate on your resume might be what secures you that great new job over another candidate. With so many courses to choose from, you’re bound to find one that will help you achieve your career goals.
3. Find a new passion
If you’re feeling uncertain about your future, taking a short course is a great way to discover a passion you didn’t know existed. By studying short courses or single subjects across different disciplines, you’ll get a taste of different fields and subject areas. You might come out of it all with a new hobby or even new career ambitions. If you’d like to know more about the direction that studying could take you in, have a read of our blog about the career opportunities that come from taking a short course. 😉
