Weird Brain Exercises that Help You Get Smarter – Upside down

Say Hello to mid-week! Here’s a tip to exercise your mind and keep your brain refreshed for the days ahead.

Try turning familiar objects upside down. Literally.
When you look at things right-side up, your left “verbal” brain quickly labels it and diverts your attention elsewhere. When they’re upside down, your right brain networks kick in, trying to interpret the shapes, colors, and relationships of a puzzling picture.

Turn pictures of your family, your desk clock, or an illustrated calendar upside down.
