Well they say Einstein was a man who was able to use 7% of his brain while most of us only use 3% of it. They also say that our memory is much better than 10,000 10 GB USB drives. The point is ‘they’ always say stuff which either motivates us or demotivates us. For a majority out there, increasing mind power is not really much of a concern. But, for those who actually want to do it, the solutions are not difficult.

First off, one fact needs to be acknowledged -- not everyone has a powerful mind. Not everyone is born with a brain that can solve Einstein’s Riddle – ‘Who Owns the Fish’.

Why?

Simply because not everyone has brains that can solve mathematical or logical riddles!

So, even though Einstein’s riddle is considered to be the toughest riddle of the world, it does not stand as the final psychometric test. If you are a wizard of logic, you will solve it, but those who aren’t, can’t. That, however, does not determine that someone’s brain power is lesser than yours. Maybe they are the artistic types or the creative types who can create things from scratch. So, just because they can’t solve the riddle doesn’t make them any inferior.

Can you increase your brain power?
Certainly! Everything in this world has a solution, and Einstein didn’t come from outer space. Some individuals are born and brought up in environments that automatically increase their brain power without the need of extra efforts. So, to be like them, you have to live like them.

So let’s get started!

Here are simple ways which can substantially increase your brain power. Again, don’t expect to be the next Criss Angel! Increasing your brain power has nothing to do with being an illusionist. But, you can expect to become more efficient at work or at college for sure. Try out these exercises and you’ll gradually realize how it works.

Deep Breathing
How many of us practice that? Almost no one actually! Nobody wants to take out time just to ‘breathe’. But, believe it or not, deep breathing does have a huge impact on your brain power. The process here is simple -- the more oxygen you inhale, the more oxygen goes to your brain. The result? You feel relaxed and your brain becomes more active. All you need to do is to breathe deeply through your nose which would draw more air to your lungs. Either make it a regular practice or do it whenever you have the time – your call!

Improve your posture
Most people may snort when they read this. However, your posture has a lot to do with your thinking process and brain power. Sit up straight, do some glute bridges daily to reduce stress on your spine, and try sleeping on your back. All these exercises contribute towards improving your posture. The better your posture is, the more enhanced your thinking ability will become.

Meditation helps!
Everyone recommends it and it’s not that hard to do. In fact, most of us meditate without even knowing it. The easiest way to meditate is to close your eyes, sit up straight and pay attention to your breath. All you need to do is exhale slower than you inhale. It will relax your body and brain, and eventually increase your brain power.
