Most of us try to exercise our body and brain daily, some people go for a run, other meditate, or even do puzzles and riddles. Taking care of your body and mind is a good idea, and subjecting them to different stimulus — always helps.
I sometimes try to sit down to do puzzles, crosswords or even sudoku — one of my favorites is reading backward puzzles, they give your brain a good workout and improve your reading speed.
Talented people have more creativity — and there are obvious signs that show they have what it takes to be successful in life. Some of the defining qualities you can see on gifted people are fast-thinking, curiosity, quick-learning and willpower.
A superb way to train these important qualities and to exercise your mind — is reading backward.
A good exercise for the brain
Doing this quickly and precisely means you are talented because there are few who can read backward at a similar speed as they read normally.
