Right Now is the Best Time To Learn A New Skill

    Taking care of yourself can come in a million different forms: physical activity, meditation, yoga, and keeping your brain stimulated. For some, that’s as straightforward as deep breathing and the New York Times crossword puzzle. For others, it’s getting an MBA or enrolling in classes at a local community college. For all, especially right now when things feel out of control, learning new skills can give you a sense of purpose and prepare you for new opportunities in the workforce.
