Helpful resource: Access below!

Want to learn something new or try a new hobby? Don’t worry; there are lots of benefits of stepping out of your comfort zone! It becomes even more important to learn new things as you get older, and taking the time to learn a new skill can make your mind stronger, boost your emotional well-being, and help you stay connected with others. Here are some ideas for new things to try this summer:

  • Enroll in an art class and dive into a new medium, such as sculpture, watercolors or printmaking.
  • Embrace an active and social lifestyle by joining a fitness class. Whether it’s the gentle grace of Tai Chi or the invigorating challenge of Pilates, find the perfect fit for you.
  • Expand your horizons by exploring local museums or visiting historical sites you’ve yet to discover.
  • Unleash your creativity and bond with a talented friend who can teach you their craft or skill. They’d probably love the company.
