As soon as people leave school they think this is the end of studying when it is probably the beginning of studying what you are truly passionate about. You have to stimulate your mind whether it is furthering your studies or learning something new you are interested in. This might include learning to paraglide then possibly taking this further into getting your glider pilots license (GPL). The more you delve into understanding different sciences the more you understand life and what it is about and will therefore live a fuller life of excitement and wonder recognizing issues around you. For instance what is the use of learning to scuba dive if you cannot identify any of the species around you. Do a course whenever you are in Ponta do Ouro to learn about life on land or in the ocean to really make your visit a stimulating one. Here are some of the courses offered by various organisations within the Elephant Coast region.

Intellectual Stimulation - Too many people complete their studies then think they are done with stimulating themselves.. you should never stop intellectually stimulating yourself by taking courses or get involved with a club that enable you to learn form others whether it be a photographic club, scuba diving, astronomy etc. Even learning how to do pottery or paint... studying music stimulates you intellectually as you learn to develop your talents in these fields. Get to know the environment around you, understand the food you eat, your body, your origins... we have it all on the many pages on Facebook that give you daily tips on how to enjoy your day.
