Why learning makes you more happy, healthy and wealthy

Learning makes us healthier

Learning makes us happier

Learning actually makes you happier. Researchers found that one of the things that people need to be happy is to be engaged in difficult-but-doable activities. This is an opportunity for them to become so absorbed in their tasks that time seems to stand still.

Leonardo da Vinci’s 4 strategies to be an effective learner

1. Look after your body

Your body is the carrier of your brain. So, if you want to have a good brain, you can start by looking after your body. Another benefit of taking care of your body is that you’ll have more energy as a result. You can invest this energy into your work and get results that you never thought were possible. You’ll get more mental clarity and endurance as you tackle the biggest problems in your day, in stride.

2. Explore your passions and obsessions

Discover deeply what you truly love to do. One of the greatest joys in life is to lose yourself in your passions and obsessions. And, it’s in this space that you’ll start doing your best and most rewarding work.

3. Educate yourself

This is a must. Nowadays, we barely read outside of a computer screen, we barely have the attention to sit down and focus on a challenging piece of literature. Engaging in education, challenging ideas and concepts is the only way to feed your mind. Today, we have education at the tips of our fingers. But, we don’t really know how to engage with it effectively. Education is not entertainment, it’s not fun and it’s definitely not easy.

“I have lived a thousand lives and I’ve loved a thousand loves. I’ve walked on distant worlds and seen the end of time. Because I read.” — George R.R. Martin

4. Embrace uncertainty

This is a tricky one. Sometimes things just don’t go the way we plan and life can be brutally unfair. When you embrace uncertainty, you purge all your worries around achieving success and give yourself more space to work on your goals at hand. Because, at the end of the day, if we won’t achieve anything if we are crippled by worry and fear.

Learning makes us wealthier

Your wealth is not just a measurement of how much money you have, it’s a measurement of all the positive things that you’ve accumulated in your life. Your good reputation can be part of your wealth.
