Of all history’s great minds, arguably the master of combining genius with unusual habits was Albert Einstein – so what better person to study for clues to mind-enhancing behaviours to try ourselves?
He taught us how to squeeze energy out of atoms, so maybe, just maybe, he might be able to teach us a thing or two about how to squeeze the most out of our tiny mortal brains. Could there be any benefits in following Einstein’s sleep, diet, and even fashion choices?
It’s common knowledge that sleep is good for your brain – and Einstein took this advice more seriously than most.
He reportedly slept for at least 10 hours per day.
But can you really slumber your way to a sharper mind?
