Sit at a coffee shop or a library, and just watch around you. You’ll start to notice trends in people’s behaviors.

 

Share what you learn

If you find someone to debate and analyze ideas with, you can add to each other’s knowledge and gain new perspectives. Also, when you can explain ideas to someone else, it means you’ve definitely mastered the concept . You can even share what you learn without directly talking to someone.

Explore new areas

If you can’t travel every day, at least try to find something new within your hometown. Meet with different people, learn new facts, and understand something new about the world.

It’s a lot more productive than staying at home and watching TV. Find out new things out of your interest also to know about them deeply.
