Bea Boomer’s Vital Aging Project – Day 49 – 4/24/15
Bea’s Buzz for Friday:
Henry Ford said it well:
Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at 20 or 80. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.
I can’t speak for anyone else, but I believe that lifelong learning is a key to vital aging. For me, maintaining a sense of curiosity and wonder, along with cultivating a wealth of knowledge, is a great way to maintain a youthful outlook.
I recently found an inexpensive online learning source – you may want to check it out if you want to keep those brain cells charged up. The site is Ed2Go, and it offers a variety of courses in 12 categories (Accounting/Finance, College Readiness, Personal Development, Technology, Business, Writing and Publishing, and more). Ed2Go partners with over 2000 colleges and universities to offer continuing education for adult learners of all ages.
- Do you know someone who may be interested in career training? Programs include: Healthcare and Fitness, IT and Software Development, Media Design, Skilled Trades/Industrial, to name a few.
- Are you a writer? Check out Ed2Go’s Writing and Publishing course options.
- How about Personal Development courses? You’ll find a wide variety of interesting choices.
I’m currently taking a Brain Health course at Ed2Go. This course cost me $65 and consists of 6 weeks of lessons. I’ll let you know what I thought of this class when I’ve completed it.
