Summer is here and we feel quite lazy, looking forward to holidays and quality time. But summer can be the ideal time to do brain training, along with physical training. Here are three easy ways-
1. Use the hand that you don’t write with- so if you are right handed, use your left one to do tasks that you might do with your right, even writing. This helps the brain to make new connections and think differently.
2. Learn another language- if you are travelling somewhere, try to learn and speak at least some of the words and phrases that you may hear. Try to speak it too. Again, it has been shown that learning languages helps you become smarter.
3. Sleep more- Sleeping rejuvenates our brains and body. It has not been found out exactly why we dream but some say that it helps to process our thoughts, questions and emotional issues. You may find that you can work better with a short siesta of 20 minutes in the afternoon- many eminent scientists have used this technique.
