The Guardian is reporting on a BBC show about how to get smarter.
How do you get smarter?
THE GET SMARTER GUIDE
Brush your teeth with your ‘wrong’ hand and take a shower with your eyes closed.
Do the crossword or Sudoku puzzle in your Sunday paper and take a brisk walk.
Have oily fish for dinner, and either cycle, walk or take the bus into work.
Select unfamiliar words from the dictionary and work them into conversations.
Go to yoga, Pilates or a meditation class, and talk to someone you don’t know.
Take a different route to work; watch Countdown or Brainteaser.
Avoid caffeine or alcohol; memorise your shopping list.
Here’s another: get enough sleep. Arrghhh … I went to bed at about 2:00 last night, and that is not a recipe for success on the next day.
