Hobbies That Will Make You Smarter

There are different activities that can help your brain while having fun doing them.

It is common for hobbies to be seen as an activity that is done just for fun. Some of these hobbies can actually do double-duty, like exercising your brain, helping you learn things, and making you smarter. Here are three ideal activities to develop intelligence:

Do Exercise.

Although it is not an activity to everyone’s liking because it can be hard and difficult, finding a physical activity that we like will help us lose weight, sleep better, be happy when we finish our routine and in general terms to be in better health. In addition to all these benefits, exercise also makes us smarter

This is because exercising gives us energy to create and have new ideas, sends a lot of oxygen to the brain which helps improve concentration, generates endorphins, increasing the ability to order priorities and prevent us from being excessively distracted. Recent studies assure that it is also a good way to improve memory, both of familiar objects and creating long-term memories.

Play A Musical Instrument.

Music is an important part of our life and the way we interact with it is a brain process, from the type of music we like the most, the memories we form in relation to certain songs or what a specific melody makes us feel. . In this way, it is not surprising that learning to play a musical instrument, whether through classes or self-taught, is so beneficial for the brain.

This activity helps to improve eye and hand coordination, greater concentration, since playing a melody correctly takes into account many elements such as tone, rhythm, time and sound and it has even been shown that if it is learning to play any instrument from an early age will improve fluency in speaking and processing information.

Playing Video Games.

Although video games carry the stigma of causing violent behavior, this is nothing more than a generalization thanks to the fact that there is a lot of misinformation about it. The reality is that there are many video games available that are mostly excellent for making us smarter.

Many games require developing a strategy to achieve the stated objective, then the brain must generate solutions, thus increasing spatial navigation, strategic planning and motor performance. Some studies claim that if you play every day for half an hour, the grey matter can be considerably increased. There is also the belief that video games help improve vision, which is supported by the fact that to locate objectives in video games you have to stare while scanning the entire scene. At the same time, the speed at which everything happens causes the brain to generate adrenaline and dopamine at high levels, potentially making the brain more plastic.
