But bear in mind that exercising it’s not just for your health status but the benefit are countless. And when it comes to improving brainpower it’s a gold mind!
Exercising is known to stimulate brain cells growth through a process called neurogenesis. By far this is the easiest way of boosting your IQ.
Another example of this is, that of an experiment of children that walked to school and of those who are given lifts with cars to school. Results showed that children who walked to school everyday tend to concentrate better and get better test scores than they’re peers sho get lifted to school everyday.

The second productive reading that is beneficial to improving your IQ. Is reading beyond your boundaries. True, everyone has his own favorite genre of books to read, might be science fiction, fiction or non – fiction. But exploring into new genres, reading a diverse range of books.
For example people like Bill Gates read book that, in our view seem a bit outside his boundaries. For example he mostly recommend books like: Where Good Ideas Come From:The Natural History Of Innovation by Steven Johnson. Where to find those kind of books?
Yes the answer is bookstores might be online or a bookshop. How can you expand your boundaries? For example, let’s say you a voracious reader of thriller and mystery books, so you can do this by going for example and checking out the genre or category biograthy and read about President Obama or Benjamin Franklin or even yo can read about your favorite author if the book about him/her is available for you to read.
Finally reading books that are challenging or of a difficult significant content. To improve your brainpower sometimes you have to challenge your brain, it is one of the de factos of improving your IQ. Try books that you think that you find difficult to understand or think are to complex for you to read.
That one that pops out of your mind right now go for it!! It can be books of historical fiction/war or even classic books. You don’t need much can be 2 or 3 books to read and you might learn something. The fact is Warren Buffet reads up to 750-1000 pages a day!! And he is one of the smartest people alive today!!
Thus, Albert Einstein stated: “If you stop learning it’s when you start dying”
3. Playing games
Playing games is one of the great ways you can stimulate your brainpower. For example, playing memory training games can improve your memory and from our definition earlier on memory is part of the of the definition of IQ. So games are important when regarding improving your IQ in no time.
But the are some games that won’t improve your IQ. Besides memory games the are categories that you should check. There are 3 many strategic/logics game but the are 4 princle ones are:
Crosswords and puzzles. This is in fact the traditional way of improving your IQ, so make sure you download one crossword game and one puzzle game on your device, download something like Tetris and make sure you play both this games everyday everyday. Might be 10-15 minutes or lesser time depending on you.
FPS games, yes an action games. Scientific studies have shown that playing FPS games can improve your IQ by playing them. How? By taking the realism of the game into consideration. Get in the zone and see yourself in the battlefield and making critical decisions making and making smart decisions eventually making you be smarter.
Lumosity. Is a collection of games designed to challenge some certain parts of your brain. Lead by top neuroscientists and also back by Universities like the University of Michiagn this is the one that I recommend all to sign up for. Not only are the games stimulating the brain, but their also enjoyable, making brainpower fun!!
Suduko and Scrabble. Another classic set of games that can improve your IQ. Neuroscientists studies have shown that by playing Scrabbles or Suduko leads to more efficient brain activity. So the more and more players master those games the more their brains shown a reduced consumption of glucose.
4. Intermittent fasting(IF)
“BDNF acts on certain neurons of the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system, helping to support the survival of existing neurons, and encouraging growth and differentiation of new neurons and synapses.” – Acheson et Al 1995
What is fasting? Fasting is a restriction of food for a denied period if time at regular intervals. only will Intermittent fasting help in preventing neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s but it can also help improve your IQ. How? It works by increasing the production of what is called Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) a protein in the brain that is essential in neurogenesis.
Neurogenesis which is the process of development of new neurons. And also is proven that people with greater levels of BDNF have lower rates of depression. Not only will Intermittent fasting helps in keeping health and mental health in good conditions but it can and will boost your brainpower.
When it comes to supplements that can boost your brainpower there are many. But there is one that a highly recommend.

6. Learning a new language.
How does Language Smart work?
It is said that learning a new language or learning various languages can make you smart, it’s called language smart. Yes that’s right you learning!! So learning another language or languages is highly beneficial.
Why is that so? Because, you are learning can increase your brainpower. In a New York Times in 2004’s article pointed out that bilingual individuals are more adept at certain mental challenges and tasks than monolingual individuals.
Learning a new language it’s similar to learning something interesting. It might be because learning a new language is similar to learning something interesting, you both get to use books, videos and audiolearning (which I found very beneficial when you when it comes to learning a new language).
So get started and from today on, start learning a new language, a foreign language!!
Yes, meditation known to help decrease stress, anger, anxiety, depression and fear but also meditation is proven to improve brain functioning and cognitive. There are different types of meditation out there so some will sort others some won’t. You have to choose which one best sorts you and proven to be effective to you.

A modern average human, don’t really get to use both sides of their brain, mostly all of us use one part of our brain causing an imbalance. But meditation effectively harness the whole entire brain for unlocking your full potential.
Increases your EQ(Emotional Intelligence). What is emotional intelligence? Emotional intelligence or EQ is the ability to tune into and listen your emotions and then work through them in a calm thought full manner.
Hollington your emotions insider sometimes it’s not a reasonable manner to deal with them, through meditation your emotion will be addressed in an appropriate manner!
Improves your memory. Meditation increases both short term memory and long term memory, regular meditation is proven to improve ones memory, two areas of the brain that are responsible for our short term memory and long term memory, the Hippocampus and the Frontal Brain Lobe show a significantly increased productively in during or after meditation.
One effectively common type of meditation is Transcendental meditation, but neuroscientists say that all of the general types of meditation are proven effective. There are many interesting types of meditations out there one that you might like and try. If meditation still don’t work than I mostly recommend that you try brain entertainment!!
