A new year and a new beginning right. Well then try something different. Sign up for a class at the local parks and rec or YMCA. Even go to the local community college or university. There are courses you can take through online groups as well. Enroll for something that is out of your wheelhouse and/or improve a skill.
I’ve been taking Spanish for the last six months. I am not very good at it but I am understanding more of the basics than I have before and I have recently signed up for an online course to gain more knowledge for professional development. Anything to keep my brain motivated and me engaged.
So try something different. There are plenty of free and for profit courses out there that are well worth the dollar you will spend to get ahead, enjoy life a little more or simply relearn an old skill.
