To truly improve your memory, you need to form a habit of mindfulness learning.The best exercise is to frame every single thing you do into a brain power boosting exercise! Everywhere you turn there is opportunity to practice learning, attention, memorization, consolidation, creativity, etc.By creating a habit of mindfulness learning, you will be increasing your brain power exponentially every second you are alive.
Having this fact in mind, we should be clear that if you want to improve at something, you just need to keep doing it, and the younger you start, the better.
Meditation increases your intelligence and raises your IQ in many ways: From increasing your brain size to making both brain hemispheres work together to boosting the memory and advancing the emotional intelligence(EQ).
Meditation is the very best, easiest way for you to access these super beneficial mind states, and they can definitely transform your life.
I’m sure most people are aware of the “Mozart Effect,” which says that listening to Mozart “increases spatial abilities.” This phenomenon appears to suggest that the complex musical composition typical in Mozart’s sonatas stimulate neural pathways that have a direct connection with mental skills. There is a growing body of science that asserts that music has a direct effect on human intelligence and can improve your IQ.
A mind map is basically a diagram that connects information around a central subject.Mind Mapping is an ideal tool that will help you to accelerate your ability to learn new pieces of information far more quickly and effectively than ever before.Our ability to think critically and creatively is built upon the foundations of how effectively we can piece together seemingly unrelated bits of information.
In any case, at the center is your main idea,and the branches are subtopics or related ideas.Mind mapping gives you the overview of the large subject while holding the large information.
Constantly strategise, and think through your problems, by seeing things backwards, inside out, and upside down; inside the box as well as outside the box, plus no box at all.Also, by seeing ahead, seeing beyond, seeing from above, seeing from behind, seeing sideways, seeing beneath, seeing within and seeing through.
Act like a child, but don’t be childish. More precisely, adopt a child’s mindset of a beginner.
As with learning, challenging your brain with mind-training exercises can keep your brain fit as your age.These type of exercises are usually divided into areas of development.For example, memory exercises, math exercises, logic exercises, reasoning exercises, creativity exercises, and so on.
When looking at a problem or challenge or issue at hand, explore beyond the positives and the negatives, like what’s interesting here.
Constantly train the brain through brain puzzles, mind flexors, optical illusions, random-dot stereograms, and other brain games.
When you arrive at a seemingly endpoint, intentionally ask:
what else is there? what’s missing here? where’s the gap? what is NOT yet happening?
Whatever you read, read as if you are going to teach it to others.
Whatever little opportunity you get to teach make the most of it. When you teach something, you get to understand that thing more. The more you repeat that topic, the more it develops your understanding capability.Be practical,clear enough and try to teach by live examples,this helps to remember for the longer time.Always relate new information to what you already know. Create more and more associations.
Everybody has something to teach. Listen and try memorize with examples.
6.DEVELOPING YOUR IDEAS
Ask a lot of questions, and explore the world with crazy questions, just to stimulate the mind.Play, explore and experiment, with analogie.
Break patterned routines, so as to be able to see something different or think something different or do something different; more precisely, to see the world afresh and anew.
Play with all kinds of scenarios in the head:
– most suitable-case;
Don’t be afraid to play, explore and experiment with unorthodox methods to imagine more possibilities.
Exercise helps memory and thinking through both direct and indirect means. The benefits of exercise come directly from its ability to reduce insulin resistance, reduce inflammation, and stimulate the release of growth factors—chemicals in the brain that affect the health of brain cells, the growth of new blood vessels in the brain, and even the abundance and survival of new brain cells.
Indirectly, exercise improves mood and sleep, and reduces stress and anxiety. Problems in these areas frequently cause or contribute to cognitive impairment.
8.READING AND WRITING.
Read, read, and read voraciously, and write, write and write extensively, as both initiatives instigate the mind.
Try to finish a book every week. Reading novels and books leads you to a world of imagination and provides a much-needed break to your mind and gray cells.
Make a regular habit of writing down your thoughts. Writing is said to be the best machine of the “mental gym”. It provides the perfect workouts for creativity, logic and focus.
Last but not least, make sure you have a good rest every day, and a sound sleep, every night, coupled with a regular physical regimen of cardiovascular exercises, and a healthy well-balanced diet.
