I guess this is one of those things that non-confident people look after. I mean, isn’t looking for ways to become smarter a way of cheating the essential process of learning? You really think that you could swap these puzzles and tricks for a real learning process? This is merely a way of wasting time, in half-productive manner. Yep!
I think that the best way of becoming smarter is by doing what you love. Any profession, career choice or other creative process in life provides all of the necessary knowledge and tools to live a healthy and happy life. Trying to become ‘smarter’ is just a crying for help…
That however does not mean that these exercises and methods do not work. I’ve got to admit that I am actually using all of them, except for memory training and solving puzzles – which I should maybe give a try? Any opinions on this?
Meditation has been incredibly helpful in calming the mind. It’s one of those things that you simply cannot give up once you’ve learned them. I drink coffee on regular basis, but sometimes I think I shouldn’t – it goes both ways. I exercise every morning, couldn’t imagine my mornings without it. Gives a great boost to begin the day with.
I’m always learning English – it’s not my first language, though I feel that I am proficient enough that I don’t have to worry about finding the rights words, it just comes naturally. It has played a big role in my life, and I’ve seen and met people I’d otherwise not be able to, if it wasn’t for knowing the English language.
Napping…I don’t do it every day, but sometimes work does get to me and I’ll lay down for a nap. It’s pretty recharging, and this infographic made me think twice about it. I spend a lot of time working, and perhaps a daily nap is exactly what I need. Again, any opinions on this?
Which of these exercises and tricks do you use to become smarter? Do you think they contribute a lot to the way you think and interact with life? I’m always listening, so let me know :)[source]
