We often say or observe that “He/She is so smart and sharp”. But most of the time we think that it’s a god’s gift for that one particular person and no matter how much we try, we can never be that smart or sharp. WRONG.
The truth is you can also be smart very easily. There is rocket science behind knowing or remembering everything. It’s just simple little things that you do every day. Well, many would argue that according to science as we grow up we tend to learn fewer new things and our brain is not very susceptive to new information. But you’ve misinterpreted this Point.
We learn new things every day, we process an enormous amount of data and information. Often, our brain chooses to ignore most of it – but it’s not the brain’s fault. We subconsciously send signs to brains to ignore a thing and remember the one.
Today, we 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 produces 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”
What did you understand from the above quote?
Your life is the Ship, You are the captain and Your thoughts are the waves. Do not make it hard for yourself by thinking negative always. Be the captain and take control of your life. Anticipate good thing to come. Ever noticed how happy you get when you anticipate love? Or for that matter, when you see the waiter coming to your table with the food? Yes, these small things play a huge part in influencing your brain.
Positive thoughts have a better effect on your brains performance.
3: Ask More to Learn More
Whenever we do something we are not familiar with, or change our environment – it challenges your brain 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 Dopamine Hormone. Dopamine helps with keeping you happy and excited while in the brain it helps the faster absorption of new incoming knowledge.
4: Play More and Avoid Overthinking
Physical activity is the stress for the body. As soon as the stress is exhausted, your body gets a reward: a dose of endorphins released by the pituitary gland. The effect is similar to 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! Incidentally, many authors and musicians considered taking an essential part of the creative process.
Overthinking negatively about anything is too 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 and increasing the level of serotonin in the hypothalamus. 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 darkened environments.
