    The things that I have found to be helpful in improving my brain power is playing games, mainly chess and scrabble, and reading.
    I read on a daily basis and have found it helps me with relaxation and also increasing my brain power.

    I haven’t tried this dare though. I am going to try after this. Are you sure it will help see an improvement in 15 minutes?

    • Oh yes! This simple technique works all the time. It has become my second nature and I’m amazed by the improvement I get all the time.

      Go ahead and try it out and let me know how you feel after 15 minutes. Be sure to put in full concentration. This is key.

      I’ll be waiting.

  2. Dave,

    All awesome tips! I have been super into this stuff lately really learning how to better recall information that I have seen or heard places. Often times as an engineer I need to recall specific instances and form arguments. Patterning has helped a ton.

    You might be interested in this book I read recently called Moonwalking With Einstein, The Art and Science of Remembering Everything.

    It’s absolutely amazing and offers similar tips to what you wrote about here.

    Thanks for the awesome article as always.

    • Thanks a lot Dalton,

      The book seems to be interesting.

      I’ve always loved Einstein and his philosophy. I didn’t know he wrote this book. I’m surely going to get into it and ‘steal’ more of his ideas. They always come in handy for me. 🙂

      Thanks a ton.

  3. Great post! I definitely am going to try this technique you suggested! When I am overwhelmed, I almost always try to sleep it off. It helps me refocus a lot. Thanks for your post! I really enjoyed it!

    • I’m glad you enjoyed it Bailey.

      These techniques off as much relief as sleep it itself, often times more. Try them out and let me know what you experience.

      Waiting to hear your results with them.

    Hello, Dave. I like your article because I was looking for information how to stay alert, especially when the lack of sleep is involved.

    I will adapt your technique.

    I’m sure it will calm my mind and relax.

    I think that learning new things stretches mind too. Earl Nightingale , the famous broadcaster in the USA said that the mind once stretched never goes to the previous state.

    I am a woman and dancing helps me immensely. The music lets forget about unpleasant things and lets me to focus about what is important for me.

    Thanks for showing your ways on how to improve brain power, all the best, be healthy and wealthy, Nemira.

      Thanks Nemira for stopping by .

      I also love a lot of Earl Nightingale’s philosophy. Surely, the mind can never be undone after there has been a lot of stretching. That man was in his own intellectual level.

      I’m also happy that I have helped. 🙂

    From my experience, I think this strategy is quite helpful to improve maybe not only brain power but also life quality. I have done it for years and also wrote a book for people who want to master it and completely adopt it as part of their life. From my point of view, your first 3 paragraphs are kind of what this whole experience means to me.

    Drawing is something I also think is useful to have a peaceful mind which can reinforce our sensation. I also published couple coloring books on Amazon.

    I also practice lucid dream to expand my related power of exploring unknown of my mind. Interesting article and thanks for sharing!

      Hey George,

      I like the idea of drawing as a way of becoming peaceful and improving your sensation. The many times I tried it out, I was aiming at boosting my brain power but I didn’t get any worthwhile results. I think I should try it again this time looking for peace and sensation.

      About lucid dreaming, I would really love to know how you go about this. Can you explain how you do it? Do you use nootropics or just purely natural?

    Dave, that’s an excellent list of thoughts and resources! I’m so glad you’ve thought enough of others to offer these tips! I’ve always obsessed over perfection in thought, and have of course always failed (in itself a bad habit), so your direction in sleep and learning to think like the very best minds is a great help. Very interesting and engaging post!
