Watch specific TV shows: Try to watch television not only to have leisure time but also to learn something new. A good television show can help you gain you enough knowledge that will help you to have logical and smart opinions. For example: Instead of switching to music channel, Bloomberg could be a good option. Try watching news channels and opinion based episodes.
Play video games: Every game cannot clear the level of knowledge based gaming but there are some that are especially designed to make your brain more responsive. As an example you can play Sudoku or Dr. Kawashima’s More Brain Training.
Social Networking: It has been found under a study that human brains become more responsive while accessing social networking websites. Social networking boosts synaptic activities.
Ride a motorcycle: A study has found that men who ride motorcycles can train their brains. Their minds showed improved cognitive functioning. Also, it has been found that they remain happy even after committing mistakes as well.
Listen to Music: Music is the best therapy in the world. It soothes your mind and makes you more productive as it gives you an option to revive your senses and come back with a bang.
