Laugh as much as you can. Laughing is a very good exercise for body as well as brain also. Laughing makes the involvement of the multiple regions across the brain.

Avoid stress and anxiety. Stress is the enemy of the brain as its leads to the destruction of the brain cells and hippocampus. Hippocampus is that part of the brain which helps in the formation of new memories and retrieval of the old ones

Do meditation and yoga. Meditation helps in improving the focus, level of concentration, creativity skills, reasoning skills and learning power. The meditators have more activity in the left prefrontal cortex. Prefrontal cortex is an area for the feelings of joy.

Include omega 3 fatty acid: The omega 3 fatty acids are very good for the brain. Fish contains a good amount of Omega 3 Fatty Acid. Fish oil can also be used in for cooking. If you are a non-vegetarian you can walnuts, flaxseed, pumpkinseed and soybean.

Have fruits and vegetables: Eat all the seasonal fruits and vegetables as it helps in the development of brain cells.

Avoid excess alcohol: Over consumption of alcohol leads to the killing of the brain cells. But if taken in moderate it will improve the memory and concentration power.

Use mnemonic devices to memorize things easily. Mnemonics are the clues that help in remembering anything.

Visual Image: You can connect a visual image with a word or name so that you can remember it.

Acrostic: Make a sentence by using the first letter of every word .For e.g; if you want to remember K, I, A, G, B then learn it like Kapil is a good boy.

Acronym: An acronym is made by adding the first letters of all the key words that you have to or remember and create a new word out of it.

Chunking: Chunking means breaking long list of numbers into smaller chunks that is easy to remember. For e.g; 4456789432 can be memorized as 445-678-9432.
