Any new thing will definitely help you to increase your interest and reduce your mental stress. Mental strength requires that you continue building new neural pathways by learning new things. The more regularly you pick up a new skill, or study a new subject, the stronger your mind becomes. So purposely challenge yourself. Of course, what’s challenging to you might not be to someone else, so you need to analyze where your comfortable boundaries are. Then pick something slightly outside those boundaries and take one small step every day. That could mean speaking up for yourself when it’s uncomfortable or enrolling in a class you don’t feel qualified for. Push yourself to become a little better today than you were yesterday. So please, try to pick up one new thing every week and then continue working on it as you learn new things. It really helps you to build up your mental strength gradually.
