When we see somebody really smart, most of the time we think that it’s a God’s gift for that one particular person to be like that.
What is more, we also think that no matter how much we try, we can never be that smart or sharp.
The truth is you can also be smart very easily. Here we will present some conclusions based on Neuroscience – On how to train your brain to remember more and process the information faster.
You will be shocked to see how Super Smart you can become:
Step 1: Be Humble and Polite
Being polite and humble gives you an opportunity to see the positive side of everything. This behavior boosts the production of more serotonin in the anterior cortex of the brain.
Staying happy while thanking people for smallest things they do for you actually makes your brain adaptive to new information and increases acceptability.
Step 2: Anticipate Positive Things
“A ship Sails to only where the waves take it. Only a wise Captain will harbor the waves and set ashore”
According to this saying, your life is the ship, you are the captain and your thoughts are the waves. Do not make it hard for yourself by thinking negatively. Be the captain and take control of your life. Moreover, anticipate good things to come.
Positive thoughts have a better effect on your brain’s performance.
3: Ask More to Learn More
Whenever we do something we are not familiar with, or change our environment, our brain is challenged to work more. Direct your focus on learning new things by asking questions. This process makes your brain feel like a winner and rewards itself with the Dopamine Hormone. Dopamine keeps you happy and excited and it also helps your brain absorb the new incoming knowledge faster.
4: Play More and Avoid Overthinking
Physical activity puts stress on your body. As soon as the stress is exhausted, your body gets a reward: a dose of endorphin released by the pituitary gland. It has similar effects as opioid (eg, morphine), which reduces pain and increases the mood. You do not need to run a marathon to achieve this result – even a normal walk can do wonders.
On the other hand overthinking negatively about anything is very dangerous. It makes your brain stressed and depressed about things that haven’t even happened yet. Try to avoid overthinking and keep your mind calm.
5: Take Full Rest
While we sleep in the dark, our body secretes the hormone melatonin. This hormone slows down all processes in the body, helping it to recover. If the brain detects a change in lighting, it triggers the release of the stress hormone to quickly awaken the body. Therefore, it is important to sleep 6-8 hours a day and only in dark environments.
