We train the mind in chess

Hello dear readers! In today's article I will tell you how to become smarter. I am sure many are looking for the answer to this question.

It is believed that people who have an innate talent become smart. It turns out that it is impossible to fix a person born of a stupid person. It is a myth. Brain can train and improve all his life and, if desired, everyone will become smart regardless of age, wealth and social status.

Step-by-Step Action Plan

I will tell you a collection of useful tips and step-by-step instructions that will help you become smarter. Armed with this information and having received a portion of knowledge, you will approach the goal.

  • Train your brain. This applies even to smart people. Otherwise, lose your mental abilities. Constantly activate thought processes. Many methods of brain training have been developed: reading books, solving problems. As for innovative methods of improvement, they are focused on training memory and mental functions.
  • Keep a diary. Write down a step-by-step plan for achieving the strategic goal, indicate how much for a certain period you plan to read books and solve problems. This will track success.
  • Read. I recommend reading more, because reading books develops the brain. While reading, a person thinks. Watch useful videos, only they weaken the brain.
  • Make decisions yourself. People who do this think a lot before making a decision. By shifting responsibility onto the shoulders of another, you won’t become smarter.
  • Connect with smart people. Otherwise, the people around you will express admiration for your intelligence. This will increase self-esteem and satisfy the ego. Remember, lack of opportunity to learn contributes to degradation. Communication with smart people will negatively affect self-esteem, but this is an effective way to become smarter.
  • Discover the world and expand your horizons. If you sit at home, read encyclopedias and watch educational films, this will not bring results. Many people think that a wise person is a hermit. It's a delusion. Visit new places and, if finances allow, travel actively.
  • Act outside the box. Pattern actions hinder brain development, and inventing and applying custom solutions helps. Only active improvisation brings new colors to life.
  • Ask yourself difficult questions. Spend a lot of time searching for answers. At the same time, I recommend using knowledge and life experience. This will make the brain work actively. The constant support of curiosity did no harm to anyone.
  • Observe the daily routine. This advice may seem ridiculous, but I recommend listening to it. Improper nutrition, along with insomnia, cigarettes and alcohol, does not allow the brain to function normally. That's why it’s so important to eat healthy food, quit smoking and give up alcohol. Pay attention to sleep, do exercises, walk, eat foods containing B vitamins: nuts, fish and liver with vegetables.
  • Do not ignore spiritual self-development. Methods of spiritual development open new horizons and abilities of the brain. Meditate to clear the mind of anxiety and unpleasant thoughts.

I forgot to mention how to make sure that intelligence has increased. This will help IQ test, which I recommend periodically take place. Under conditions of constant work on yourself, the results of subsequent tests will increase.This is evidence that you are getting smarter and moving in the right direction.

6 Ways to Get Smarter

How to become smarter and wiser

People turn for advice to authoritative individuals and representatives of the older generation, believing that wisdom comes with age. No one thinks of becoming smarter and wiser than himself. And this is real even at a young age.

Mind and wisdom are different concepts. Not all smart people are sages and vice versa. Everyone on the planet seeks happiness. Some are of the opinion that only smart people can do it.

  1. Curious people become smart, and that's true. That is why it is recommended to read books, communicate with smart people, and strive to expand skills and knowledge. True, do not forget that this will not open the road to wisdom.
  2. Man strives for authority and wealth. By becoming smart, you can build a career and earn great income. It is not surprising that the rich provide children with education.
  3. An intelligent person differs from a sage in the volume of knowledge, which is much larger. At the same time, there are more happy people among the sages, because they know what things in life deserve attention.
  4. If you understand the difference, you will be sensitive to the sources of information. This will help to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge that will be useful in life. And remember that the lack of the necessary knowledge is a direct road to misfortune.
  5. Analyze what you hear and see. At the same time, subject the information to harsh criticism, because an objective assessment allows you to become wiser.
  6. Sages know that everyone aspires to happiness. But, each has its own approach to achieving the goal. That is why you think deeply that it will provide an understanding of what is required for a happy life.
  7. Get a good mind brain training helps. That's why keep it in good shape, which contributes to healthy eating, sports and outdoor recreation. To improve skills, constantly hone them. For example, if swing muscles, over time, notice that they have become more massive and firmer. In the case of the brain is similar. If you strive to be smarter in any area, do it only.
  8. For people involved in mental work, I recommend doing physical exercises. Training cleanses and relaxes the mind, saturates the brain with oxygen. Exercising increases metabolism, which increases the speed of cleansing the brain of toxins. He gets more nutrients.
  9. Nutrition is the key to a healthy body. Review your diet to include more vitamins and nutrients. Eat fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
  10. If you follow a diet, do not completely abandon carbohydrates - the source of glucose that feeds the brain. It is noteworthy that about twenty percent of the body's energy is spent on the brain.
  11. Take care of a full sleep mode. For a good rest, an adult needs 8 hours. I recommend sleeping as much as you need for normal health and recovery.

If you begin to move towards the goal, do not forget that work on wear will not lead to good. The result is not improved intelligence, but reduced mental abilities. Act thoughtfully, carefully and within the normal range.

What books to read to become smarter

I will devote the last part of the article to enhancing intellectual abilities through books at home. People read for information. And no wonder, because it enhances intelligence and improves life. There are many books, which complicates the distribution of time for reading.

As practice shows, some people use reading for entertainment, while others try to benefit. It takes a lot of time to read the book, and literally a month later it is forgotten. As for reading books to enhance intellectual abilities - a kind of work, rewarded throughout life. Choose books wisely.

Everyone should read the news to stay up to date. However, the news does not expand intellectual abilities and quickly become obsolete.We will dwell on books that will make them smarter.

  • Pay particular attention to the scientific literature. If you think that it is represented only by volumes with intricate terms, you are mistaken. There are books in this section that contribute to a normal understanding of the world. They talk about people and about society.
  • The advantage of such books is the ability to develop curiosity and arouse the desire for study. With the help of scientific literature, you can develop intuition and increase interest in the world and personal abilities.
  • Do not disregard the philosophy based on analytical thinking. Experts call philosophy the science of human life. This category includes religious works. Books like the Qur'an or the Bible call people to a good and meaningful life.
  • Philosophy is losing popularity, giving way to engineering and technology. Remember, we live in a world of people, not machines. With the help of philosophy, many people define wishes and needs, gain knowledge that allows them to implement ideas.
  • As for serious fiction, many consider it a collection of fictional stories. Such an opinion is held only by persons deprived of imagination. A great romance is able to send us to a new world and introduce us to a different reality. And since the basis of classical works is history paired with philosophy and psychology, fiction contributes to the expansion of consciousness.
  • Reading in literary language, increase the accuracy of thoughts, writing and speech. If you read foreign literature in the original, this will contribute to improving intelligence and the development of the English language.
  • History is considered boring, because it is associated with a school course, which provides for the study of facts, names and dates. At the same time, history is a collection of incredible ideas and exciting events that have contributed to the formation of civilization. A close acquaintance with the past allows us to understand the present. Of course, history is not able to predict the future, but it helps to improve understanding of events and makes life conscious.
  • Increase intelligence possible even through poetry. Poetry is an easy genre focused on conquering girls. But, people who think so are depriving themselves of the opportunity to understand the secret meaning of words. Good poetry is a combination of meaning, music, love and beauty. Thanks to her, in the conditions of the modern world, the first masterpieces of mankind are available to us. With the help of poetry, develop eloquence and hone your language skills.

The main role in enhancing intelligence at home is played by the book, not the genre. The works of which author to give preference to you. With the advent of the Internet, choosing books has become easier. Just look at a thematic site and read its summary. If it turns out to be uninteresting, do not buy.

While reading, think it over to implement new ideas and improve intelligence. The goal of reading should be self-improvement.

For many, reading is hobby. Perhaps it does not allow success in scientific activity, but it contributes to self-improvement and development. Life requires us to be intelligent, smart and cunning.

I am surprised by people who stop working on themselves. I advise you to constantly read and watch cognitive programs on TV, because it makes life more interesting.

A well-read person always behaves with dignity. Even if they joke about him, he fights back by voicing a small, but "prickly" remark that he has learned from books. Read and improve. Good luck
