Learning Something New

Research shows that learning something new can improve your mental health and wellbeing by:

  • boosting self confidence and self esteem
  • helping you to connect with others
  • giving you a sense of purpose


This could be simple as learning to knit, skateboard, cycle. It could be starting a new club like climbing or rugby. It might be learning a new instrument or joining a choir.


It doesn't have to be expensive and it could be something that you are already good at but what to spend more time on like painting or running.


It doesn't mean putting yoursef under added stress of taking exams! This should be about you enjoying yourself.
