A smarter brain helps you to get a lot of compliments from everyone. Being called smart gives you a completely different pride. However, when you are living a monotonous life it’s easy for your mind to start getting dull. But, you don’t have to bring big changes or go on big adventures to keep your brain smart. You can always begin by starting small. Here, in this article, we have gathered ten daily habits that will make you smarter.
1. Start by reading
Big changes happen when you take a step forward towards a smaller change. Reading has a lot to do with how smart your brain remains. You might have noticed how people who read are a little smarter than those who don’t read. However, you don’t have to read big bulky books to get smarter.
You can start by reading something as simple as a newspaper. The newspaper keeps you updated with all the things that are happening around. It gives you the knowledge and knowing eventually makes you smarter. Also, reading newspaper will help you get comfortable to start reading books. So, subscribe to a newspaper and start reading them.
2. Keep a journal
A lot of people believe that journaling is tiresome work. I won’t deny it but once you get the hang of it journaling becomes therapeutic. Writing your thoughts into paper will help you to internalize what you are feeling. Also, when you are journaling you give your ideas a written form.
We usually don’t remember what we always think but writing it in a journal will help you keep those ideas safe from forgetting. Taking a few minutes away from your day to pen your thoughts into a paper will help you recollect your thoughts about the experience you had. And, like a wise person once said, ‘You learn from experience.’ Journaling gives a boost to that learning and helps your brain become smarter.
3. Feed your curiosity with knowledge
Growing up we asked a lot of questions. All the answers to why, how, when, where, what questions gave us knowledge about whatever things we were curious about. But once we start reaching a more matured age we often don’t ask as many questions as before.
Even if we are curious about anything we don’t make any effort to feed that curiosity and that what turns our mind dull. Don’t hesitate and ask as many questions as you want. Feed your curiosity and it will help to keep your brain active. Therefore, it will end up making your brain smarter than before.
