Study can at times become stressful, and if you have a number of other commitments may be extremely difficult to find the time to do it at the level that is required to achieve your objectives. But with most things in life, you could improve it by careful planning. Indeed if you look at things which may tend to succeed in life, you could find that a good plan of action is being followed. At times you may find it hard to motivate yourself, but if you have a big reason this could give you the drive to continue when you might feel low. For example if your driving desire is to improve your mental growth, then you could remind yourself of this at the times you need self-encouragement.
Can mental Growth come via study?
If you consider that while you study you will need discipline in-order to do the work required to progress on the course, you could find that your self-discipline can improve while you are pursuing your course of study. So you will be gaining the valuable quality of self-discipline. The fact is you could find that you are developing many valuable skills and qualities while you work through your course. The fact is you could find you gain many benefits than just gaining a new body of knowledge. These skills and disciplines that you acquire could in-fact help you in many areas of your life. So you could find that by really making a very good effort, you could develop things that will give you great benefit.
Growth or decline
It could be an interesting idea that if a person is not growing mentally then they may be declining. If you consider that your body needs regular exercise for you to remain healthy and fit then you can see the need for doing things in a consistent regular way. But if a person stops regular exercise then their body would begin to become less healthy. So based on that idea you could say the same thing applies with the mind and study. For example if you are doing regular study your mind would be growing; you could say that you are becoming mentally healthy or fit. but if you were to stop studying, then you could find that your mind is not getting the challenges that lead to your mind developing. So this could be a good argument for the need of regular study, to ensure that your mind is remaining healthy. Indeed this gives rise to an interesting thought.
Growth by facing challenges
There are many times you could find challenging and difficult situations in your life, but these situations may in-fact be helping you to grow. If you think back to times when you went through mentally challenging times you may find that you have grown mentally due to the fact that you had to raise your skill level in-order to master the problem.
Indeed it could be said that by overcoming problems, you could be growing in mental strength. So these challenging times might actually be working for your benefit. So these could actually be a part of your continual learning. And this may be adding to your on-going mental growth.
