The Benefits of Lifelong Learning

The Benefits of Lifelong Learning

Every day more research is being released that shows the positive effect that learning has on the health and longevity of the brain. Learning a new study, using critical reasoning, and step-by-step sequencing are 3 key brain functions that schooling easily incorporates and exercises. And by engaging your mind with proactive learning, like a muscle, you’re keeping your brain strong and preventing a level of cognitive decline.

A great way to practice the art of being a lifelong learner is to audit courses at a local university or to do online programs. Both options are great and can have different practical benefits dependent on your priorities. Auditing a course has a physical sense of community and can allow for connection with professors or other students. Park Springs offers great proximity to Georgia Tech, Georgia State, Emory, Agnes Scott, and other nearby schools. Online programs offer flexibility to engage with the course at times that work best for you.

In whatever way you choose to engage your mind in education, the importance is making lifelong learning a habit, especially early on in the aging process.
