Living life requires some getting used to. There are always things to be learnt that really can make life easier. This month is a good time to learn new skills. Below is a list that you can pick from.

1. Cooking – This one is first on the list because food is important. Everyone eats so everyone should know how to cook. You can start with basic meals and cap it up with knowing how to make one special meal. You know, a coup de grace on your culinary ability.

2. Changing a tire – If you drive, it makes perfect sense to know this.

3. Fixing a socket – It's just a socket, no need calling the electrician to come all the way for only this. Same goes for other little electrical issues like changing the microwave plug. Note though that electricity is a tricky thing. Know when to call in a professional.

4. Sewing with a needle – Haa! We've all had those days of minor rips and accidental tears. Knowing how to work a needle comes in handy at such times.

5. Driving – You can totally boycott this but try not to. Emergencies happen and it may come in useful.

6. How to use a first aid box – A literal life saver.

7. Swimming – This is both a sport, a leisure activity and on some days, something that can save a life.
