Thinking of Starting Something New? Why You Must Just Do It:
  1. Sense of Purpose and Mental Well-being: Starting a new endeavor may seem daunting yet doing so provides a sense of purpose and direction in life and combats feelings of stagnation or boredom—both of which can negatively impact mental health. Having a clear goal and actively working towards it also boosts self-esteem, motivation, and overall mental well-being.

  2. Physical Health Benefits: Engaging in a new endeavor often involves physical activity, whether it's pursuing a new sport, joining a fitness program, or simply incorporating more movement into daily routines.

  3. Personal Growth and Learning: Starting a new endeavor promotes personal growth and lifelong learning. It challenges individuals to step outside their comfort zones, acquire new skills, and expand their knowledge base.


A Couple of Concepts:

*Why Keep Learning?:


Continuous learning promotes cognitive health, improves memory, and enhances overall brain function and well-being. In other words, a must-do!


Research shows that engaging in learning activities throughout life can reduce the risk of cognitive decline, delay the onset of dementia, and improve mental well-being.


*Love Your Hippo(campus):


The hippocampus, located in the medial temporal lobe of the brain, plays a crucial role in learning and memory formation. It is involved in the acquisition, consolidation, and retrieval of information. Scientific studies have consistently shown the involvement of the hippocampus in various aspects of learning and memory processes.


Social Exhaustion

Do people wear you out? Feeling tired after social interactions can be attributed to various factors.


One possible explanation is the energy expenditure associated with socializing.


Engaging in conversations, maintaining social cues, and managing interpersonal dynamics require cognitive and emotional effort—and that can be exhausting for some people! This exertion can lead to mental and physical fatigue, known as "social exhaustion." Additionally, introverted individuals may experience more significant fatigue due to their preference for solitude and the need to recharge in quiet environments.


Scientific research suggests that social interactions activate brain regions associated with self-regulation and emotion processing, which can contribute to feelings of tiredness and the need for restorative solitude.
