So I was about to throw away my April 2011 Glamour magazine. Well I don’t know about throwing it away, I kind of like going back to them for some old tips… like this one. The next 15 minutes could make you smarter. We all want to be smarter… right? These super fast tricks will help you get your game on, experts say.
Got one minute?
Test Your Memory
Look at whatever’s directly in from of you for 30 seconds. Now close your eyes and visualize what you saw. Without looking up, write down 10 items you just spied. This forces your brain to use both its language and visual areas, says Shelley Carson, Ph.D., author of your creative Brain. It’s a perfect tune-up before an important presentation.
Got two minutes?
Crank Up Some Music
Upbeat songs increase levels of the feel-good brain chemical dopamine. And “being in a good mood inhibits parts of the brain that are critical,” explains Carson, “so you’re better able to come up with creative solutions.”
Got Seven Minutes?
Can’t leave your cube?
YouTube “nature montage,” then takes seven minutes to look at images of land, sea and sky. Nature’s restful effect can enhance memory and attention almost 20 percent, a small University of Michigan study found.
Got 10 minutes?
Ten minutes of non-violent video games like Tetris quickness you’re through processes, letting you make decisions and see connections faster. Bonus: Video games distract you from anxieties, which can hamper quick thinking.
Got 15 minutes?
Have Some Coffee!
Or tea, for that matter: Caffeine revs up the central nervous system and boosts the hormone nor epinephrine, which acts like “brain adrenaline,” says Carson. You’ll see an improvement in attention and problem solving. Just don’t have more than two cups: Jitters ruin everything!
Try it… Hope it works for ya.

After family time and good food we went to the park for the firework show. Overall a nice community event.
