10 Proven Ways to Help Boost Your Mental Energy

2. Read something that you have never read before

Reading is an effective way to strengthen your higher-order thinking skills. Research has shown that reading a novel can enhance the brain’s neuron connections and improve the overall function of the brain. It was also revealed that reading strengthens the ability to empathize, and stimulates the imagination in a way that the reader was actually watching a movie. It is especially important to read about topics or genres that you have never really exposed yourself to before. This will help diversify your creative thinking abilities and it will also increase the neuronal connections in your brain due to brain plasticity and cognition.
