Sleeping in to 3 p.m. on Saturday is not the path to enlightenment. It is on you to decide what path is right for you though. In an article for Gizmodo, Jamie Condliffe assists by sharing a few tips to make you feel smarter.
Let’s start with food. Fish, berries, and antioxidants have been connected with inhibiting cognitive decline, and omega-3 oils have been connected with copious physical and cognitive benefits. Likewise, exercising can, in a roundabout way, produce new energy for the brain in addition to your muscles.
Next, clothing—do you own a white lab coat? If not, get one or something else that you associate with being worn by smart people, because people wearing white coats have been shown to demonstrate twice the “mental vitality” of people not wearing such coats.
If you are in the mood for something even more impractical, line yourself up for some electroshock therapy; it really works, to an extent. Or you can just remember to practice better sleeping habits, and listen to stimulating music that generates dopamine in your brain. Whatever works for you, go with it.
