Make your brain work better

Updated on February 22, 2011

Becoming a genius is not an overnight task, some are born that way but even the best minds have acquired the skills they possess from sharpening their minds to function smart. It is essential to practice and ensure that you get ample opportunities to practice being a stronger and more efficient person.

The human brain is a complex system with ever so many functions, details and minutiae that govern its many aspects and functioning. It is important to keep it working at all times on a number of activities and events.

Work on scrabble, word puzzles, Sudoku and other games in your daily newspaper or online in your free time. It will keep your mind sharp, keyed with new terms and words and you will definitely be growing smarter and faster at doing things. This will engage you, challenge you and at the same time be a fun activity for you.

Memorize phone numbers, bank details and other information for quick recall. This is a great way to keep yourself more friendly in terms of working with and using numbers.

Use your non dominant foot, hand and body parts to do tasks you normally do with your dominant side. Exercising both hemispheres of the brain are a great way to stay on your toes and have a healthy and active mind.

Music has been implicated in many research studies as having an impact on intelligence, particularly classical. Develop an interest in some Beethoven or just listen to it while you take a power nap, it may just speed those grey cells up some.

Correct postural errors. You might be stooping or not standing tall when walking or interacting leading to your functioning being less than required. Make sure that you do have the right posture in place and this in itself will increase your receptivity to new content and new situations.

Eat the right kind of food. Cut down the fat, add on the protein and mineral content. It’s an absolute must to get rid of the sloppy, slow reactions in you.

Write something every day. Writing is something that exercises the mind as well and making it a point to spend some time writing a little something will stir your imagination as well as make you more of a creative, analytical individual.

Ask questions, encourage yourself to ask yourself, ask your friends or just Google it up or ask around at yahoo answers or use online ask services such as those with educational learning companies or online tutors. Find answers, ask questions that will make you think about things from different perspectives.

      Absolutely!! 8 hours of sleep is a must have, if you want to be able to actually do all of the exercises to sharpen your brain.

      Sleeping too is very important, unfortunately many of us do not get very much sleep.
