Monday Listicles

 Once again thanks to Stasha at Northwestmommy for hosting Monday Listicles...  This week's topic is education. As such I present to you, the top ten things you need to know to become smarter.

How to Become Smarter
  1. Read a lot.  Read a variety of styles of texts and novels but read as much as you can.
  2. Befriend smart people.  I am the dumbest person in my circle of friends and I am thankful for it. 
  3. Do not be a sheep.  Think for yourself.  
  4. Staying on the animal theme, don't be a parrot.  So many people think that they have to quote others to sound smart.  
  5. Question your beliefs regularly.  You may not change them but you will have confidence then that  at least examined your thoughts and ideas from a multitude of perspectives.
  6. Never be afraid to say, "I do not know" or "I am wrong."  
  7. Never be afraid to question others.  People love to demonstrate how smart (or perhaps not) they are.
  8. Try new things.  Be willing to stretch yourself.
  9. Engage the arts.  This stimulates your creative juices.
  10. Live a healthy lifestyle.  Get enough sleep, eat properly, exercise regularly.
