It’s never too late to learn new skills and keep ourselves connected with the community around us through technology. Practicing physical distancing and staying at home doesn't necessarily mean to disconnect from others. We can still connect with our loved ones, family and friends around the world digitally to keep our body and mind intact. While learning, we are engaged with others and in turn, create opportunities for us to socialize and practice our interpersonal skills.
Research proves continuous learning helps us to keep our mind sharp and improve our memory as we age. Gaining new skill sets would undoubtedly result in obtaining better career opportunities. Let's not forget about the enhanced self esteem after accomplishing new challenges while reaching for new horizons.
