Mental Health & Well-being Blog – July 2020

Mental Health & Well-being Blog – July 2020

This month we challenge you to keep learning !  Try something new! 

Keeping your mind engaged with new ideas and experiences is an important part of your mental wellbeing. This could be as easy as doing a daily Sudoku, learning a new skill through an online tutorial or listening to an informative podcast.

Why?

Your ability to reason and make good decisions depends on how well your brain interprets and processes information. Doing regular mental challenges trains these mental pathways, improving their effectiveness and refreshing old or unhelpful thought patterns. Research is showing that lifelong learning may improve brain function and prevent or delay the symptoms of dementia.

Find daily activities that you can do to improve your mental wellbeing – keep learning
