How to boost your IQ – guaranteed!
What if I told you that in just six months, you could significantly increase your IQ? It might sound too good to be true, but research has shown that keeping a daily journal or diary can indeed make you smarter. Not only that, but there is strong evidence that this simple exercise can turn you into a genius!
Catherine Cox, a researcher who studied the habits of geniuses such as Isaac Newton, Einstein, and Thomas Jefferson, found that all of them were compulsive journal keepers. In fact, a study revealed that only one percent of the world’s population regularly engage in daily journal writing, and that same one percent almost always achieved great success and lived longer than average.
Consider Thomas Edison, who wrote an astonishing 3 million pages of notes, letters, and personal thoughts in hundreds of personal journals throughout his life. Even Steven Hawking, who is confined to an electronic wheelchair and unable to speak or move, has used computers and other aids to record his ideas and reflections.
But here’s the good news – you don’t even have to write anything coherent to experience the IQ-building effects of daily journaling! English inventor Thomas Faraday filled thousands of notebooks with seeming nonsense, yet his brilliance was undeniable. The best method for building your IQ appears to be carrying a journal with you throughout the day and jotting down random thoughts as they occur.
In fact, keeping a daily journal might not just make you smarter, but it could also increase your lifespan. A group of nuns in Mankato, Minnesota, who regularly keep journals, live well beyond the average age of death for women in the area and exhibit no signs of Alzheimer’s or dementia. A study of their IQs revealed that they were all well above average.
So why not buy a notebook and carry it with you everywhere you go? Jot down your random thoughts, reflect upon what you write, and watch your IQ soar!
