There are definitely some interesting ways to become smarter that make an appearance on this list. People will definitely be excited about some of the choices, such as napping. Yes, napping, you can become smarter with naps. Next time someone calls you lazy, tell them you were exercising your brain! Naps actually help with revitalizing you and help with memory. Obviously, the time of the nap is key because too long or too short and you won’t feel the maximum revitalization. It is best to awaken from a nap before you are in deep sleep otherwise you will wake up feeling groggy and more tired than before. Just choose your nap times carefully!

Another one that will get people excited is playing video games. They can actually work your brain quite a bit. Video games can help with your memory, problem-solving skills, and yes even your social skills. Think about all the times playing video games where maybe there was a tough puzzle you had to solve, it is basically like a math problem disguised in good graphics, a nice story, or great character interaction. Or if you participate in online games, you probably don’t realize how many different people you come across and have to work with to complete an objective. This communication obviously helps in problem-solving, interacting with other humans, and how you cooperate and work in a team environment. These are all useful skills in everyday life.
By far the most surprising way to become smarter on this is list is from chewing gum. Who would have thought that chewing your favorite gum can actually help out your brain?
