Ongoing learning

I think it’s really important to try to make the best of and brain cells I’ve still got working to use them to learn something that interests me. 
For me with my health issues, I’ve had to bad creative in finding stuff that I can do online or in “safe” environments to keep me feeling in control of my anxiety and for me to enjoy the experience. 
One of the ways I can do that is via distance learning online which many colleges do now. You can pick as little or as much as you want to do. You can apply for finding for it too. Another way I can do that is through my local adult learning team who facilitate small classes locally on subjects of interest to the community. 
What I like to be able to do is things at my pace and that’s how I enjoy ongoing learning. I know it has to be the right thing at the right time for some of us and I just wanted to raise the topic and see what others think.
