Kindergarten is just not about listening to fairy tales and learning how to read and write (though those things are equally important). It’s all about growing up and experiencing moments that you’ll take with you into your adulthood.
In fact, if you really give it a thought, the most important lessons we learn about making friends, respecting our friends and elders, and, of course, painting/coloring occur by the age of six.
Make new friends but treasure the old ones
Do you remember the “change your seat students” day in school, when all of a sudden you’re sitting next to Joy instead of Paul. And while the first few moments of the new arrangement might have been a bit weird but by the end of the day, you had a new friend.
While changing the usual routine isn’t always the most comfortable thing but it is essential for your personal growth. As adults, there are no teachers around to give you that gentle push into unfamiliar social circumstances, so it’s up to you to expose yourself to new co-workers, social circles and make that initial, awkward introduction.
“Sharing is caring.” Whether you are excellent in your job with information to share or just have an extra chocolate that you coworker likes. Share. Just like you shared lunches during your break that gave you best friends for life, so here in this new world with new people, share.
Study time and Play time
“All work no play, makes Jack a dull boy.” Along with your meetings, presentations, reviews, and excel sheets, every once in a while do not forget to unwind. Maybe go out, play games, outdoor fun, it’s also worth recollecting some of the sweet old memories.
Put things in the right place
This one should be common sense, but unfortunately, it’s not always at the top of adults’ minds. Respecting and cleaning your surroundings is a kindergarten lesson that you should definitely try to follow.
