Education is the key to success. It’s never too late to learn something new that would make you more smart than you were yesterday. There is so much undiscovered on this planet and so many things are out there waiting to be noticed by us. Our friends might have a talk about something that we aren’t aware of, we cant pitch in our opinions as we have no knowledge about the topic. At times like those we wish we were smarter or such.
Here are some of the habits that can be adopted to boost our intelligence.
1. PLAY BOARD GAMES AND PUZZLES
Some common games such as scrabble, Sudoku, word puzzles, cards, jigsaw puzzles, and memory games helps in improving your IQ as well as teaches you reasoning. Not only that but memory games like pictionary and scrabble also improves language. However Sudoku has proved to lower the Alzheimer disease according to the American Alzheimer’s Association.
2. READ THE UNTOUCHED
We are experts in the things we like and happen to study more of it, but what about the topics we don’t like or are uncomfortable reading? We might know the known but isn’t it better to know the unknown? We all would like to have a broad knowledge about so many things, so try to go in depth of things and learn something that it rarely touched. Our brain will thank us about it in the future.
3. NOTE DOWN YOUR QUESTIONS
What if one day you were just reading a book and all of a sudden you mind asks you questions that you dont know the answer of… and there is no one around you? Rather than letting these questions pass, write them down or type it in your mobile phone so that the next time you get a chance, you can educate yourself on them. It also improves your written communication skills.
4. MAKE TIME FOR YOUR PASSIONS
If you have a passion that you are neglecting for a while, then it’s the right time to bring it all back.Especially the musical instruments play a huge part in healing and education. When a study on musicians was done it was founf that they have greater working memory than those who don’t play an instrument.
Do you know that physical health and mental health are equally related? We wont just loose some calories but will gain a boost of energy that helps us to think better and concentrate on things better. Its the same when it comes to mental health, the more you exercise the less stressed you are going to be.
6. LEARN A NEW SKILL
The more creative you are the more stimulated your mind is. You can always make efforts to refine a skill and broaden your knowledge about it. If you are exhausted of your regular routine then you should try a new skill as it will hold many exciting challenges for you and keeps you going. Give your brain the stimulation it is craving for.
