Curiosity is Cool.

 So Investigate.

But why Mum?” That nagging question can be annoying but is part of developing - and maintaining - a healthy mind. Encouraging children to explore and investigate doesn’t just help set them up for a fulfilling life, it can help extend the quality and length of life as well. And it applies to people of all ages, so don’t be afraid to go along for the ride.

Lots of research – as well as common sense - tells us that the best way to stay young is to act the way young people do.
Stay curious, keep learning, be interested, get involved. Practise and model the good behaviours of young people.

If the tap won’t stop dripping, have a look and see if you can fix it. It might be easier than you thought. Or it may challenge you in such a way that you develop a whole new set of skills.
Being interested is a great way to strengthen family bonds. Try asking these two questions over dinner with your family:

1. What was the best thing that happened to you today?

2. If you could, what would you like to change about today?

This way, you’ll learn more about what the ones you love are doing and what makes them happy or sad. Also, you might find out about an issue like playground bullying before it gets out of control.
We’re never too young or old to learn, in fact when we stop learning we get old in a bad way.

Curiosity may occasionally kill the cat ---but much more often it prolongs and improves life.

Have an interested week,

Kim.
