Consider Learning an Instrument

In the video below Anita Collins examines long-term, positive effects of music. 

When you listen to music, multiple areas of your brain become engaged and active. But when you actually play an instrument, that activity becomes more like a full-body brain workout. What's going on? Anita Collins explains the fireworks that go off in musicians' brains when they play, and examines some of the long-term positive effects of this mental workout.

I play the guitar, and usually do so for at least 20 minutes each day. This can vary, as I sometimes will play for well over an hour in one sitting. This is a useful contributor to self-wellness because it unlocks the creative side of the brain in addition to the critical thinking and evaluative side.
