Cultivating a beginner's mind helps rediscover the joy of learning. In this week's life hack audio guide, Christian Jarrett, a cognitive neuroscientist by training, looks into the Japanese Zen term 'Shoshin', a practice founded on the principle of approaching every task as if we have never done it before; it's an especially great listen for understanding our limitations. We also recommend checking out "Learning chess at 40" by Tom Vanderbilt, an excellent complimentary piece to this guide on the subject of learning just for the sake of it - search for it on Curio and add it to your queue. Feel wiser and more fulfilled on your walks with Curio's life hack audio guides from Psyche magazine. Perfect for taking time out for yourself and making the most of your walking time, with new episodes released every Wednesday.
