working out for a month coming down from

number ten enriching your vocabulary a

rich vocabulary is a sign of a smart

person isn't it

reading books is an obvious way to

become smarter however not all of us

honestly have time for that these days

here's a solution this one-minute

exercise will help you find new ways of

saying beautiful and comfortable look

around now describe the first object

that caught your eye that pen on your

desk for example can you come up with

five or six different descriptions of it

[Music]

now was it hard if you felt like the

words you need were right at the tip of

your tongue but did not come out here's

what you can do pause this video for a

couple of minutes and consult an online

thesaurus write down all the synonyms

you need there you go as you go back to

this exercise just pick another object

next to you you will see that this task

will get easier every time you try it

and your vocab will grow number 9

visualizing time for some memory

training it is an essential part of any

brain workout can you quickly memorize

the words you see on your screen top

model ocean Sun Hat dog sandwich hmm

5 seconds was not enough what if we try

to connect these words logically a top

model was having a photo shoot by the

ocean the wind blew her son hat off but

the dog saved it and was rewarded with a

sandwich now play this image in your

mind can you remember the words in their

original order now I bet you can we have

here's another memory boosting exercise

he can never do too many of these right

how good are you at memorizing numbers

let's try this one five one seven four

nine eight seven two three one wait

keep it on hmm I think it was 56

something something eight I give up if

you feel that this one as well it's not

a reason to panic your brain just handle

short-term memories of no importance to

you this way it lets go of them real

quick keeping them for no longer than 30

seconds and it only keeps a maximum of

five items in there the 10 digit number

you've just seen was useless to you but

what if it was some data at work you

only need four now so it's important but

not important enough to keep it for a

long term checking the same numbers you

need for your report a million times can

get annoying the good news is you can

train your short-term memory easily

let's just split the number into

sections you've got five seconds to

memorize it five one seven four nine

eight seven two three one and now enjoy

this cute cat photo for another five

seconds to let the numbers sync yet ah

time to check the numbers can you

remember all the ten digits now I

believe you can try it with your social

security or credit card number or the

numbers from your phone book keep

chunking to boost your short-term memory

number seven memory shortcuts there are

some pieces of information we'd better

remember for good important historical

moments countries and capitals u.s.

presidents can you name the first 16 of

them Washington definitely and then it

was Jefferson or Madison I can't tell

you but I can definitely tell you that

Washington's army jogged many miles and

jog very hard to Philadelphia to find

pretty British ladies makes no sense oh

yes it does here is a list of the first

American presidents by the last name

Washington Adams Jefferson madison

monroe Quincy Adams Jackson Van Buren

Harrison Tyler Polk Taylor Fillmore

Pierce Buchanan Lincoln so if you

memorize this line remembering the

presidents will be way easier you can

try using nanami devices those lines

with a hidden meaning to keep other

information in mind as well

number six reaction game now that you've
