A class surrounded by stainless steel laboratory furniture fails to please everyone. As a young person, it is important to try things outside of your degree and improve yourself as a whole individual. There is life outside of your lab or your lecture hall, and it waits for you to explore it. When you are a student, it is easy to neglect everything that lies outside your education, but this is a time to experiment and find out more about yourself, your likes and dislikes. In this article, we share some of the classes you may enjoy if you fancy yourself a curious mind who likes to experiment and try new things. The world is ripe with opportunities, and you may find something outside your degree to make a career out of.
Pottery And Sculpting
These two are often paired together, and they both promise a time of learning and enjoyment. Pottery involves clay, and shaping it into sculptures, bowls and pots of all kinds. Similarly sculpting takes stone and carves into a desired shape. The two are creative industries that require focus, patience and skill but are both lots of fun. They have existed for thousands of years and many archeological sites have found the remains of old civilizations. Create your own set of pots and bowls, or carve a sculpture for sentimental value.
Dance And Yoga
These are both heavy movements of the body and the engagement of the mind. Get your heart pumping in both classes while having an enjoyable time, still. Dancing gives you a chance to improve on your dance floor skills, burn calories and have fun with the entire process. Everybody enjoys dancing to a good soundtrack and this is the opportunity for you to get those dance shoes out and follow in the footsteps of some of your favourite dancers. Yoga has more flow to it and less energy output, depending on the kind of yoga it is. Hot yoga will definitely have you sweating very hard in a few minutes, however the beginner classes are a good way to relax and empty your mind. Take yourself on a spiritual journey with yoga workouts that emphasize stretching and breathwork to increase your flexibility and range.
Woodwork And Art
Woodwork and art are two other types of activities that require you to use your hands and your imagination. While woodwork is more technical, art can be subjective and accomplished using paint, pencil, paper mache, or any other medium you find enjoyable (you can even experiment with missed media). In woodwork, learn how to uidl objects that could become your next favourite piece of furniture, like tables, chairs or even chess sets. Woodwork gives people a sense of accomplishment, and so does art. So, whichever one you choose your skills will be tested, but you will certainly have fun with the process.
