Stretching Time

“Novelty in all things is charming.” – Ovid

Try Something New – easier said than done, right?!

While the pandemic seems never-ending, it also feels like the past few months have passed by in a blur. Trying to have as many new experiences as we can — even small ones — is one way we can wrestle back some control and stop time feeling like it is whizzing by so fast.

As we all know our experiences create new neural connections in our brain…..(click here for data proof). It’s kind of like when we learn new ways to drive to work – when we stumble upon that inevitable traffic jam we then have an alternate route to get to where we are going.

These connections are not only useful but essential.

How can you enhance these connections as you prep for your boards?

Try something new:

  • Always reading your material on your computer? Switch to a hard-copy or a text book.
  • Have a Dialogue – Review the material out loud – Try to explain it to someone.
  • Write it Down – Copy the material after you read it to hand written notes. The act of writing will significantly enhance these new connections.

We might want this year and its events to be over as soon as possible, but it would also be nice to look back on 2020 and remember it for something awesome that we have accomplished.
Embracing things in a new way is one way to make that happen!
