I am officially done with the first year of university. The second-year starts in October. The last set of assignments was submitted in April and studies have been on pause since there. The break is a very long one, so I have decided to carry on studying over the break. Taking that many months off studying will leave me with a lot of free time, I rather stay busy especially with all that we are currently experiencing. I have decided to do a free course a week with The Open University. I started my first-course last week and only just finished. The course was titled – Making sense of mental health, and it was a great first course in my studying a course a week challenge.
Studying a course a week
The course is a level 2 intermediate stage. It took me a few hours to complete the course but it takes most people 10 hours to complete the course. I really enjoyed studying this course. It is relevant to my degree in psychology and I always wanted to learn more about mental health. This course enabled me to make sense of the different mental health illnesses, how they get treated by different professionals and it also enabled me to get familiar with the terms used in diagnoses and treatment.
Reading a book a week
This week, I will be starting a new course and I am seriously looking forward to it. This week’s course is all about attachment in the early years. It is all about the research in the attachment in early childhood. I dedicate a few hours a day to study in between work, homeschooling the kiddies, and everything else. It is my way of staying on top of my learning. I am also still reading a book a week on my Amazon Kindle. The book I am reading this week is Conversations with God: An Uncommon Dialogue Book 2 by Neale Donald Walsch.
I finished reading the Book 1 last week and I went straight on to the second book. The series is really good. I am loving all the words of wisdom in the books. You can check it out via the link below –
