In Lucie Fink's series for Refinery29, Try Living With Lucie, the 24-year-old tries changing up her lifestyle for five days straight, documenting the experiment and reflecting on her experiences on camera.
Most recently, Fink decided to try "5 Days of Taking Classes" in an effort to seize more opportunities in New York City, learn new skills and to exercise her mind while she's at it.
"I kept making mistakes ... but I got through the lesson just fine and, to be honest, knitting is so fucking relaxing," Fink says.
Next up, Fink takes a pottery class, which according to her research, is great for brain stimulation, seeing as you use hand-eye coordination, physical sensations, and creative muscles while participating.
And, "at the end of the day, I walked away with a huge, ginormous cup of coffee ... and I'm going to get to say 'I made that cup,'" Fink concludes.
At the end of her five day experiment, Fink says:
"In truth, one lesson is all it really takes to spark an interest in something, and picking up a new hobby or skill can really change the course of your life."
Thus, it's important to take the opportunity to learn entirely new things in life — whether it's how to make candy or how to run a business, step out of your comfort zone and see what you can do.
