    There are a number of normal activities that we participate in day by day that could hamper or improve our intelligence. This activities more or less effects our minds and improve or dull our sensibilities. Our remain's the greatest treasure that keep us to continue enjoying life's  exciting opportunities. The following are five ways that we need to consider in our effort to improve how our mind works.
     
    1. Minimize Television Watching
    This is a hard sell. People love
    vegetating in front of the
    television, myself included more
    often than I’d like. The problem is
    watching television doesn’t use
    your mental capacity OR allow it to
    recharge. It’s like having the
    energy sapped out of a muscle
    without the health benefits of
    exercise.
    Don’t you feel drained after a
    couple hours of TV? Your eyes are
    sore and tired from being focused
    on the light box for so long. You
    don’t even have the energy to read
    a book.
    When you feel like relaxing, try
    reading a book instead. If you’re
    too tired, listen to some music.
    When you’re with your friends or
    family, leave the tube off and have
    a conversation. All of these things
    use your mind more than
    television and allow you to relax.

    2. Exercise – I used to think that I’d
    learn more by not exercising and
    using the time to read a book
    instead. But I realized that time
    spent exercising always leads to
    greater learning because it
    improves productivity during the
    time afterwards. Using your body
    clears your head and creates a
    wave of energy. Afterwards, you
    feel invigorated and can
    concentrate more easily.

    3. Read Challenging Books – Many
    people like to read popular
    suspense fiction, but generally
    these books aren’t mentally
    stimulating. If you want to improve
    your thinking and writing ability
    you should read books that make
    you focus. Reading a classic novel
    can change your view of the world
    and will make you think in more
    precise, elegant English. Don’t be
    afraid to look up a word if you
    don’t know it, and don’t be afraid
    of dense passages. Take your time,
    re-read when necessary, and you’ll
    soon grow accustomed to the
    author’s style.
    Once you get used to reading
    challenging books, I think you’ll
    find that you aren’t tempted to go
    back to page-turners. The
    challenge of learning new ideas is
    far more exciting than any tacky
    suspense-thriller.

    4. Early to Bed, Early to Rise
    Nothing makes it harder to
    concentrate than sleep deprivation.
    You’ll be most rejuvenated if you
    go to bed early and don’t sleep
    more than 8 hours. If you stay up
    late and compensate by sleeping
    late, you’ll wake up lethargic and
    have trouble focusing. In my
    experience the early morning
    hours are the most tranquil and
    productive. Waking up early gives
    you more productive hours and
    maximizes your mental acuity all
    day.
    If you have the opportunity, take
    10-20 minute naps when you are
    hit with a wave of drowsiness.
    Anything longer will make you
    lethargic, but a short nap will
    refresh you.
    5. Take Time to Reflect – Often our
    lives get so hectic that we become
    overwhelmed without even
    realizing it. It becomes difficult to
    concentrate because nagging
    thoughts keep interrupting.
    Spending some time alone in
    reflection gives you a chance
    organize your thoughts and
    prioritize your responsibilities.
    Afterwards, you’ll have a better
    understanding of what’s important
    and what isn’t. The unimportant
    stuff won’t bother you anymore
    and your mind will feel less
    encumbered.
