Some time back my sister wrote about few tips to increase your brain power. You can find it here.
I was immediately hooked on to mind mapping.
A mind map is a graphical way to represent ideas and concepts.
In a mind map, as opposed to traditional note taking or a linear text, information is structured in a way that resembles much more closely how your brain actually works. Since it is an activity that is both analytical and artistic, it engages your brain in a much, much richer way, helping in all its cognitive functions. And, best of all, it is fun!
One of the other tip to boost your brain power is to create a list of 100 things of something, anything.
I combined these 2 techniques and doodled a mind map of about 100 topics to blog about in Potpourri.
Say I am clever now, pretty please :-)
