Tips to Improve Your IQ

April 17, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 175

We all want to be a little smarter, know a little more and figure things out a little faster. But with today's innovations and forms of entertainment, it is a little harder to accomplish. However, if you are looking for a way to improve your IQ, know that you are not alone and that there are many things you can do to achieve this. Just like a muscle you want to develop, the brain needs a work out as well if you want your IQ to improve.

Read more

I was definitely one of those who grew up with adults advising me to constantly read. What you may not realize, especially with distractions such as television, reading is a great exercise for your brain. Not only are you able to use your imagination as you go through a story, but you also develop a strong vocabulary. Dictionaries and thesauruses are available online to help you look up a word you are not familiar with. But reading is a definite way to help increase your IQ.


Physical activity is another sure way to help you get the IQ you want. By exercising, you are allowing your body to clear your head. This will allow you more energy to think of new ideas and concentrate on other things more easily.

Do puzzles

Whether it be a jigsaw puzzle, crosswords or sudoku, puzzles will help exercise your brain logically and analytically. You will be stimulating your mind a little more and improving your IQ in no time!

Write whenever you can

Because of today's technologies, we no longer do much writing. Try writing a letter or note instead of sending an email or text message. Switch up your writing hand as well to increase activity on the opposite side of your brain.

Listen to classical music

There is a theory called the Mozart effect that basically states that the more you listen to classical music, such as Beethoven, Chopin or Mozart, the more you are able to develop spatial temporary reasoning.

Get plenty of rest

Little to no rest is a great way to damage you mental powers to think clearly or concentrate. Be sure that you are getting plenty of rest every night. The recommended number of hours to sleep is 8 hours. If this is something you can't do, be sure to give yourself power naps when you are tired. A good 10 to 15 minutes worth of rest should help you to reboot your brain.

Keep the television off

Television can hinder you from getting the IQ you desire because it will not allow you to use your mind much. You are already given images and you are informed about the things going on by the shows dialog. You should avoid becoming a television watcher since it will only increase your chances of becoming a coach potato. You can also help boost your IQ by eating right. Involve yourself in activities that will make use of your brain.

Eat right

Did you know that there are food for the brain? Fish is a great source of brain food. Also, by adding Omega 3 to your diet, you will be helping yourself improve your IQ.
