Everyday Well-Being

Recall your favorite subject in high school, and list 3 reasons why you liked it.

How to do it

Think back to your high school education and recall which class you enjoyed the most. Was it your favorite because you excelled at the subject? Or maybe you had a teacher who inspired you to learn? List 3 reasons why you liked it. (Hated school? Try to think of one positive part of the experience, whether it happened in the classroom or not.)

Why it matters

What we enjoy and appreciate says a great deal about ourselves. Recalling a favorite subject of study is a great way to remember that learning needn't be a chore, but that it can be fun. By breaking away from the assumption that learning - or even work - is a chore rather than a joy, you can break through negative stereotypes and find pleasure in unexpected places. You may even find that you're inspired to learn more about a specific topic.

Fun fact

Woody Allen once said, "When I was in school, I cheated on my metaphysics exam: I looked into the soul of the boy sitting next to me."
