Did you finish school last year? Last decade? Last century?
Does it matter when?
It might, if you want to keep your brain sharp and agile.
It’s unlikely you completed school last year. Most readers of this blog are older than that. You might have finished in the 2000’s. Or last century - in the 1990’s, 1980’s, 1970’s or even earlier (like me!).
You learnt new things almost every day when you were in school. Your brain was very active, building new neural pathways and strengthening existing ones.
If you finished school last decade or last century, it is likely you haven’t been learning new things nearly every day since then, and it’s the new things, the novel things, are best for keeping your brain sharp.
