Yes, You Can! Get Out of Your Comfort Zone
The August issue of National Geographic Adventure features 14 skills for "Everyday Survival" by Laurence Gonzales. Check out NGA's blog for skill #8 "Get Out of Your Comfort Zone." Gonzales' states that facing new challenges causes a rewiring and growth of the brain; whereas doing the same-old same-old makes you, well, the same and old. Gonzales' suggestions? Take up an instrument, learn a new language, write with a different hand or, heck, go seek out a new adventure!
