Education is one of the most important aspects of a child’s life that can take them from humble beginnings to wherever they want and need to go to be ahead of their niche of business or science, if they choose those roads. Building a thirst for knowledge that is a life-long ambition depends on high quality teachers who are paying attention to their students and have an individual approach to every student depending on their skills, likes and passions, as well as their striving for perfection and happiness.
After school activities are a very important part of a child’s life because they are the glue that helps communities stick together while keeping children off the street. From an early age, children learn to appreciate their teachers and the company of other kids who help them build friendships and long-term relationships with their peers. This is an important part of growing up and feeling happy about themselves, without engaging in activities that can be dangerous for children. When choosing after school activities, a child’s interest should be taken into consideration. It is good to have a little bit of everything during the week, from arts and crafts to sports, music, dancing and educational courses. That way different aspects of a child’s personality can shine through so when the time comes to choose a narrow path, the person will know what they want to do in life.
Scientists believe that a balanced brain, with the left and right hemispheres working together to bring good results, is something that can make a huge difference to a person’s life. If a person is interested in Math and sciences, for instance, they should also engage in arts and performance – that way they make both parts of the brain be active and work together so that they achieve maximum potential as a well-rounded person. This is something that should be taken seriously and regarded as the best way to work and live, even in adult life. Creative professionals who are engaged with music or dancing all day, should benefit from doing puzzles and engaging in other intellectual activities later in the day so that their brain functions as a whole.
It is important to make sure that people are doing this on a daily basis. Scientists should appreciate some arts and even try to take the brush in their hands and experiment. Even if the results are not that great it gives them an opportunity to be creative rather than only engage in exact sciences which they are used to. The main purpose of education should be making people curious about the world for a life time and helping them fall in love with discovering new things, not only in terms of new knowledge but also different life hacks and even spiritual skills like meditation and stillness which can activate the mind in a non-linguistic way.
