Select your mental activities strategically.

Sudoku, crossword puzzles and online brain games keep your brain busy and may make you better at those specific activities. They most likely do not translate to better higher-order functions. Seek activities that boost decision-making, problem-solving and higher-order reasoning, such as synthesizing big ideas from a variety of sources and blocking out unimportant details to focus on the key objective at hand.
