Do you seek out knowledge or do you wait for it to come to you? Do you ever think to yourself, "I wish I knew how to do ____"? And then what do you do? Do you hunt down people who have that information, read books on it, or at least Google it? Or do you just keep daydreaming?
Health and vitality isn't just in our bodies, it's in our minds. Both researchers and every day people will tell you one of the ways to maintain neurological health and mental quickness is to keep using your brain. To remain as mentally agile as you are physically, you should regularly exercise your brain along with your body. One of the ways to do this is to keep learning new things. Keep making requests of those synapses! Of course whats great about activities like gymnastics, Olympic lifting, and martial arts is that they work both aspects at once. Anyone who's spent a whole day training any of those disciplines will tell you their brain got as tired as their muscles. And like our muscles, that's how our brain keeps growing, too.
Not to mention that by educating yourself you're becoming an expert in and on your own life. So next time you find yourself thinking, "Oh, I wish I knew how to..." stop wishing and find a class, find a book, or find a website and start learning.
