6 Effective Ways to Increase your Brain Power

Did you know there are a few ways you can learn to improve your brain power?A strong IQ (Intelligence Quotient) depends on the health and vitality of your brain. Whether you’re a student studying for final exams or a working professional interested in doing all you can to stay mentally sharp, there are lots of things you can do to improve your memory and mental performance.

1. Play Mind Games

Actual games and definitely not on humans. Games like Chess, Scrabble or Sudoku are known to sharpen your senses and increase your brain level considerably. Imagine Chess for example,  players have to analyze a game many moves ahead and properly evaluate the chess composition. Even when exact calculations are impossible, players can predict the advantages or disadvantages of every move by considering approximate criteria: pawn order, open lines, capturing the center of the chessboard, etc. You must time yourself while trying to navigate through a Chess game, Scrabble or Sudoku to boost processing speed, attention and positive intellectual engagement. People who are cognitively active have better memory as they age. So quiz yourself, flex your brain and improve your memory power.

2. Read Books

Those that read have higher GPA’s, higher intelligence, and general knowledge than those that don’t. Studies have found that analytical thinking is boosted by reading. Readers improve their general knowledge, and more importantly are able to spot patterns quicker. If you can spot patterns quicker, your analytical skills receive a boost. No matter what you’re wanting to do or become, you can’t do it without more knowledge. Reading is an excellent way to get where you’re wanting to go.

Don’t say you don’t have books to read. There is always a library around you. Libraries are probably the best creation man has ever made. Imagine, free knowledge for anyone. It’s like going to a clothing store, “checking out” an outfit, wearing the outfit and returning it in four weeks, free of charge.


3. Learn to Play a Music Instrument

Research suggests that playing an instrument lights up several areas of the brain responsible for different cognitive functions. It can even increase IQ by about seven points, according to several researches. Learning to play the piano—or any musical instrument for that matter—will give you a sense of accomplishment. It will also stimulate your senses and give you energy to tackle other passion projects you might have neglected because of your studies or your job.
