There are some life skills you don’t learn in school. Things that you kind of have to navigate your way through when you’re in your twenties with no real idea of what you’re doing. It’s true what they say, once you become an adult you realize that nobody else knows what they’re doing, they’re all just pretending.

Luckily, these courses might just help you adapt to the adult world!

‘I’m only a morning person on December 25th’

Is that you?

Well, It’s important to become a morning person. Yes, you heard me. There is a course that will help you become a morning person once and for all. This free email course by Little Green Dot features night time routines, structuring your morning, recipes and more. It’ll help you understand why you struggle with mornings and be the stepping stone towards creating a more positive, balanced lifestyle. The course begins on Monday 25th, so hurry and sign up now!

‘Happiness is homemade’

Struggle with confidence in the kitchen? Well, this course promises to teach you to cook with confidence. Taught by chef Kenny Monroe, this premium course will teach you how to cook without following exact recipes, how to identify products and determine their quality, where to find the best ingredients and some of the best basic cooking techniques you’ll need as the building blocks of every meal. Also, if you want to learn how to make seasonal, healthy dishes – Kenny will teach you that too! You can sign up for Skillshare for $0.99 for three months, and learn till your heart’s content!
