1. Try something new

When you do something ‘new,’ your brain is stimulated. Don’t get stuck in a rut repeating the same things again and over; the only way to modify your brain’s structure is to try something new. This results in the formation of new brain connections, which boosts your IQ.

2. Get rid of the GPS

Gone are the days when you had to read a map! While Sat Nav has made our lives easier, it has also made our brains lazier and more inefficient! Return to your roots and use a map to go about now and again. This exercise works the region of your brain that deals with spatial relationships.

3. Get rid of the calculator

Remember how in school we were taught to utilize our brains to solve simple math problems such as times tables? It’s incredible how much we now rely on gadgets like smartphones and PCs to solve even the most basic mathematics. Resist the impulse to use an external device to solve problems and instead use the device you were born with: your brain!

4. Be inquisitive

Instead of taking everything at face value, start questioning the things/products/services you come into contact with regularly. You force your brain to develop and create new ideas by being ‘inquisitive’ and questioning everything. Curiosity may have killed that cat, but it was also responsible for the invention of super-important technologies such as electricity and computers!

5. Keep a positive attitude

Stress and worry damage existing brain neurons while also preventing the formation of new ones. Positive thinking, especially in the future tense, has been demonstrated to speed up cell formation and significantly lower stress and anxiety, according to research. Attempt to gain a hold on negative ideas and replace them with positive ones.
