Being in lockdown has given most of us some valuable time. While it’s great to have time for ourselves, learning can still feel like a challenge, despite having more capacity to do so.
It’s extremely easy to eat more, watch tv, procrastinate, play games, and the like, because our brain has a natural tendency to go towards those activities as there’s less effort involved in mental encoding. Add the rush of endorphins from binge-watching your favourite Netflix shows, and learning can seem like a very distant chore. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
