How to get smarter

The Guardian is reporting on a BBC show about how to get smarter.

How do you get smarter?

THE GET SMARTER GUIDE

Saturday
Brush your teeth with your ‘wrong’ hand and take a shower with your eyes closed.

Sunday
Do the crossword or Sudoku puzzle in your Sunday paper and take a brisk walk.

Monday
Have oily fish for dinner, and either cycle, walk or take the bus into work.

Tuesday
Select unfamiliar words from the dictionary and work them into conversations.

Wednesday
Go to yoga, Pilates or a meditation class, and talk to someone you don’t know.

Thursday
Take a different route to work; watch Countdown or Brainteaser.

Friday
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.
