Ways To Become More Intelligent

You can start by talking to more intelligent people and getting more information. Simply telling stories can help you also.

By reading and writing, you can learn more new words.

You can meditate, pray, and do self-help projects.

You can listen to different types of music that you don't normally listen to such as: classical, country, rap, hip-hop, etc. You can learn to play an instrument or just sing.

You can set goals (personal and professional), take a college class, or adopt a pet.

Push yourself, write about your passions, or give a speech. Write a journal, a poem, or an article which all help to boost your brain power.

If you make a mistake, learn from it, and recover from it. Sometimes, we have to learn from trial and error.

You can exercise, by simply taking a walk or joining a sport. Just by viewing nature, it may clear your mind to become more creative which may spawn new ideas.

Take road trips and try not to use google maps. Going to new places challenges you and helps you adapt to new settings.

Work on puzzles, such as Sudoku, or play card games, chess, or Lumosity, all which can possibly help increase your brain power.
