Over this last summer, I worked every day at a children’s summer camp. It was a lot of fun, and gave me a lot of free time to learn about nootropic memory supplements and try them out. Of course, all my coworkers gave me weird looks whenever nootropics came up in conversation, because it’s not a traditional hobby.
Over the course of the summer, I had gone through many different supplements, methods, and trials, and in the end I feel as if I made good progress. Today while I was walking to one of my classes, I realized something. Because I recently changed my major to Math, I’m signed up for 3 math classes, 1 physics class, and an elective. About a month into the new semester, I can already tell that making my brain work and think this hard on a daily basis has proven to be far more successful than any nootropic I tried over the summer.
(Note: nootropics are supplements. They don’t make intelligence out of thin air, they build upon what you already have)
I’m sharper, am able to focus, and best of all, I feel as though my days are productive. The only downside to school as a nootropic is that I’m tired all the time, and crash on the weekends.
Once I get into the swing of things, I will probably start taking nootropics once again for school (Fluid Intelligence, Modafinil, Pramiracetam, and Aniracetam, etc). Then I’ll be superhuman!
Even though this seemed new to me, it’s an old concept. It’s been shown that people maintain healthier brains and have less chance of adverse brain problems into old age if they lead a stimulating lifestyle.
How to Stimulate the Brain
There are countless brain games designed for brain stimulation (Chess, certain simulation video games, Sudoku, etc). The brain is like a muscle. With exercise, it will stay young, healthy, and strong.
Diet, rest, and exercise also maintain the brain, and with all of these combined, you will notice yourself feeling like every day is a good day.
