We hope this line-up is useful . You may have heard that the “brain is like a muscle” and just like other muscles, you have to exercise the brain by learning new things. There is research which shows that learning helps build neuron connections and can stave off diseases. But the act of learning can makes us happier, feel a sense of accomplishment and competence, and can give us the confidence to do our jobs or anything else we set our minds to do.
