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.
