How are you with risk?
A new study shows that teenage brains are wired differently to those of adults and that taking risks comes more naturally to them. Whilst this might drive their parents potty, it’s actually really important that young people take some chances. Not only does it let you test your physical prowess and help you learn what you can safely do but it’s also really important to make a few mistakes from time to time. Without getting it wrong occasionally, it’s hard to approach something from a new direction. They call it ‘resilience’ but basically it’s all about being brave enough to push yourself out of your comfort zone and try something new. You might not like or be good at everything but if you don’t have a go then you’ll never know.
Go on…. Take a risk!
