You will see the first result in a week and then it will get better if you opt to keep working upon it daily or make this your daily routine.
Enriching your vocabulary
A rich vocabulary is the sign of a smart person. Reading books is the obvious way to become smarter. However, most of the people don’t like to read books that are not the issues. There is a solution for it too. There is a one-minute exercise which will help you find new ways of saying or describing things.
Words like “Beautiful” or “Comfortable” are two easy words that you can use. Now here what exactly you have to do is to just look at yourself and start noticing the environment around you and describe the first object that caught your eye.
For example, a pencil is lying on your study table. Can you come up with 5 or 6 Different descriptions on it? Give yourself a task say of 2 minutes. Grab a pen and a notebook and write down 5 or 6 different lines on that item. Now test yourself. Do you find it hard to write few lines or not?
Now there is a catch in this exercise which is going to help you to make yourself smarter. What you do is just browse the synonyms of the words which you want to use and write down all the synonyms you require. Go back to this task and pick another object next to you. You will see that this task will get easy now. Every time you try it, this exercise will automatically enhance your vocabulary.
Now it’s time for some memory training. Can you quickly memorize the words you hear or see for only a few seconds or a minute? Obviously not, we won’t be able to mesmerize words quickly within 5 seconds or more. But if we put these words in a sentence or a short story then yes it will easily be memorized now.
Another marvelous memory boosting exercising. How good are you at memorizing numbers? It’s ok if you are not good at memorizing the numbers. Your brain just handles the short term memory those things which are not important for you. This way brain will let them go really quick keep them no longer than 30 seconds only keeps maximum 5 items in there. You can train your short-term memory easily.
Suppose, there are few numbers written on a paper 5248756841 and you have to memorize those number in 5 seconds it will be difficult for to remember all the digits but if you spilled the number into the section. Now you can memorize it with 5 seconds.

There are some pieces of information we would better remember for good. Such as important Historical moments, countries and their capitals name, President names etc.
Can you tell 10 historical Indian moments or Presidents name? Obviously, you will be able to tell few of the names but not every name. What you can do is try to use “Mnemonic Devices”.
Mnemonic Devices is a memory technique to help your brain better encode and recall important information. It’s a simple shortcut that helps us associate the information we want to remember with an image, a sentence, or a word.
For example, Washington’s Army Jogged Many Miles And Jogged Very Hard To Philadelphia, To Find Pretty British Ladies. Make no sense right but if you look the above line carefully you will able to get every US President name. See the Bold letters Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Adams (Quincy), Jackson, Van Buren, Harrison, Tyler, Polk, Taylor, Fillmore, Pierce, Buchanan, Lincoln.
