I’m always keen to learn new hobbies or educational training in my spare time when not parenting. What adult online learning courses or webinars have you found of interest to nourish the mind and soul?

Do you have any interest in writing a book?
Writing children's books is a fun past-time. You can get a lot of inspiration from your own children for topics.
Recently, I saw an online book writing series from Readers Digest and LifeRich Publishing that looked intriguing.
Here is the link: liferichpublishing.comwriterbites
I say follow your interests, and there should be a wide variety of online courses that will keep you engaged.
Have fun with it!
I am very fond of attending webinars/training during the lockdown to ease my boredom. Of course, since we are a homeschooling family, I attended several pieces webinars dedicated to homeschooling. The experience totally allowed me to be ready as we face something new in our lives back then. It helped me know my strengths as a parent-teacher and also know the best way I can teach my kids. I still attend free webinars if there is an opportunity.
I also attend webinars on being mindful. The pandemic and the lockdown seemed to be very stressful for us, so we need something to do that can calm us and make us feel productive while we are confided in our homes for a long time. I took every opportunity to nourish my body and mind. If you are interested in online learning, you can check out Udemy (https://www.udemy.com/) or FutureLearn (https://www.futurelearn.com/). They have a lot of online courses, both paid and freeof various interests.
I've always wanted to try MasterClass (https://www.masterclass.com/). It's a site with hundreds of different classes taught by celebrities and professionals. The range of topics is huge! You can take a cooking class by a celebrity chef or a leadership class from a former president. I love browsing their selection and hope to pick one soon!
One of the few benefits of covid19 is that so much has now gone on line, so there are more options for online learning than ever. I am currently completing a course called Managing Emotional Demands for Leaders and I am really loving it.
The kinds of courses ir training that has a positive impact on your whole life are so beneficial. I highly recommend the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People as well as Crucial Conversations.
If you like creative writing there are loads of courses in that area and a quick google search can even turn up some that are free.
I hope you find exactly what you are looking for. Love the attitude of being a life long learner.
