How to Improve Your IQ with These 9 Science-Backed Mental Exercises

Learn how to improve your IQ score with the help of the following science-backed methods.


Intelligence Quotient or IQ is defined as the score derived from several sets of tests to examine the human intelligence. Is it genetic and fixed throughout the life? Or do we need to work out to be smarter? Well, we couldn’t just rely on some numbers that depict all the aspects of our intelligence. Considering the fact that going to the gym can challenge you physically and can help you get into better shape, you can even try to carry out some brain exercises that can improve your IQ.

Here are a couple of tips that can aid you to challenge your mental capabilities, and thus benefit your mental fitness.

1. Pen down Your Thoughts


Scribbling is an excellent way to de-clutter your mind. It can also help you to solve your problems, think logically, and stay concentrated in life. Writing your perceptions and theories is a fun way to work on your mental muscles.

2. Focus on Your Breath


Thich Nhat Hanh once said that “The process of healing begins when we mindfully breathe in.” Breathing is a way to control our conscious and sub-conscious mind. It is a force of life which when focused will help an individual to improve his/her well-being. As the brain is always in the working state, focusing on breathing is a way to provide it with some silence to sort itself out. Apart from it, meditation is a great technique to talk to your inner self. It is a mental regime which helps you to enhance your mind power and eventually improve your IQ. Besides, it curbs intrusive thoughts which affect your thinking.

3. Try Puzzles and Mind Games


Competitive games such as Sudoku, Crossword, Scrabble, etc., help you to develop your cognitive skills, especially strategic thinking. Chess and computer game puzzles such as Solitaire can keep your mind sharp and enhance your memory cells. Brain games work on typical areas of mental functioning that can increase the working memory, executive functions and processing speed of a person.

4. Starve Your Mind


This may seem like a counter-intuitive statement, but starving your brain for some time is an effective way to make it sharp in the longer run. Researchers have also proved that this process actually helps in increasing the number of neurons. As the abstinence from food helps the body to revive itself from all the discomfort, similarly starving the brain provides surprising benefits to the brain as well.

5. Keep Challenging Your Brain


If you are immensely vexed with your monotonous routine, then it’s high time for you to switch to some new activities and challenge your mind. IQ checks the ability of a person to make the decisions and find solutions to any problem. While learning any new skill, you will navigate through some new information and utilise your mental capabilities to the fullest. This will stimulate the particular areas of your brain that were previously neglected and, as a result, will help you improve your IQ.

6. Don’t Rely On Machines


Most of us have the habit of making our errands easier with the frequent use of computers and other machinery. Too much dependency on computer is one of the causes of depleting mental balance and IQ in the individuals. To improve your logical abilities, it is advised to train your mind without the use of gadgets. Performing mental math is an easy way to develop advanced mental abilities.

7. Learn a Musical Instrument


Expose yourself to learning a new musical instrument that interests you. It is a long-term investment of your mental resources as you will experience its benefits after a certain period of time. Playing an instrument requires coordination between both the hands and other sense organs. This can vastly improve your cognitive and motor skills. Many studies have proved that kids who took up to music at an early age have better levels of IQ than those who didn’t.

8. Involve In Physical Activities


Regular exercising can have a profoundly positive impact on your overall health. It is one of the sure-shot ways to treat mental sickness and other issues such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, and much more.

Activities such as cycling, running, playing an outdoor sport, etc., can help you to relax your brain and also improve your memorizing skills.

9. Connect Your Ideas


Although, it can be a difficult thing to do, especially when you are new, if you engage yourself in holistic thinking, then you will see a gradual improvement in your understanding. Learn about a new topic, and then try to relate it with some of your previous knowledge. You will be able to form mind maps, and it will be fascinating to see how different pieces of information fit into one another.

Hopefully, by inculcating above mentioned ways, you will indeed be able to improve your IQ levels. If you found this post useful, don’t forget to refer it to your friends as well!

  2. WOW!!!
    This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experience and i need to share this great testimony.
    About how i get my ex back after a breakup.
    I never believed it, because i never heard nor learn anything about it before.
    Hey guys my wife and I have been married for 15 years. For over five years I have been dealing with jealousy issues because of flirting and her having emotional type affairs with other men. I felt like my masculinity was in question and if I said the way she was acting bothered me, it seemed to make matters worse or I was accused of being controling. During this period I did state I wanted a divorce if the behavior was not going to end: texting men a night, leaving for the weekend without letting me know where she was going or not responding to messages. We do have a son and basically it's been him and I for the last year on the weekends. She disconnected completely from being a good wife and mother. In April she said she wanted a separation and I said no we need to get into marriage counseling. We did try that, but she was not very responsive and didn't give any effort. Afterward she was adamant about separation and divorce. I continued to say no and that we needed to save our family. She presented a separation agreement and I had to hire a lawyer. Because of the above behavior my lawyer suggested a private investigator. The investigator discovered my wife was having an affair with a close friend of the family who also is married with children. We know the extended families. I feel like I should tell this man's wife about what happened. This adultery has devastated me emotionally, I feel betrayed and I'm physically drained. I know my wife is passionate in terms of her sexuality, and I can't get the thought of them out of my head. It makes me question my own manhood, and I feel very inferior or that he must be a better lover or what ever. The problem is my wife pursued him. She would go to him and she lured him into this adultery. I felt this was coming for some time and could not stop it. She was not only lying to me but also to our son about what she was doing and where she was going. My family is important, my son loves her and as crazy as it sounds so do I. Can you respond with a course of action on how to proceed? I was still have a very huge place in my heart for her. so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my wife came to me and apologized for the wrongs she did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I, my son and my wife are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: [email protected] or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.
