Getting smarter happens “unfortunately” not while you sleep. You can study a lot or eat a lot of “Omega 3” fish oil, but the real trick requires more than just that. You need to adjust your lifestyle.
Some are born with it, others have to learn it. And if you’re not the chosen one that you’re born with a large set of brains, these 10 habits will help you to bring out the Einstein in yourself.
Keep your mind and eyes open and when you do not totally understand something then, ask. Or when you come across a word you do not know, look it up. By continuing exploring and asking you will greatly broaden general knowledge.
THOSE 10 DAILY HABITS MAKE YOU SMARTER
When you make a habit of reading, you will see that you broaden your knowledge. And the posts on social media do not fall under the category of ‘reading’.
Find out what motivates you
When you find an interesting topic, it’s good to look for more of it and dive in there. Make sure the subject will stimulate your brains.
Change your daily routine
Of course, you can take the same breakfast every day, lunch on exactly the same time and take the same route to work. But by changes to daring in everyday life, you defy your brains to be creative and they remain busy unconscious.
Associate with smart people
By mingling yourself with smart people, you get inspired by the conversations that arise and you’re going to challenge yourself.
Take time to reflect
Sometimes we do so many things at once, we do not know where we actually are doing. It is important to take time to pause and reflect yourself. This is good for your learning. Keep a diary for example. To boost your memory and learn from your experiences.
Do not always choose the easiest path. Busy and productive are two concepts that are not always on the same line. Your ideal future can only be realized by you. By challenging yourself you keep yourself sharp.
Care for your body (health)
You should be healthy and fit to bring the best out of you and be the most productive. Good food, a good night rest, and enough exercising should do the job.
Your brains will be grateful if you take care of your body. Yes, everything is in connection with each other.
Use your new knowledge
It makes no sense to learn new things when you forget this part. Smart people do not just apply the knowledge they have to in order to be successful but especially to be someone with value.
Write your ideas on paper
You probably know it, we are on the road and suddenly something comes to mind, a great idea, but we have forgotten it at the end of the day. You should write your ideas down, a lot of successful entrepreneurs and great inventors does. Who knows, maybe you’ll be the successor of the new paper clip (someone which has become billions by the way).
