I don't know of a way to enhanced the mind like you said, but I find the best way to improve your mind in general is to create a scenario(mentally) and figure it out, learning to think outside the box. Doing this repeatedly does help at least in my case
You can listen to music while meditating to make it easier. I always thought I was too impatient to meditate, but music helps me with it.
Also, try paying more attention to everything around you. Look at people's expressions and try to determine how they're feeling. Look at the color of the sky and describe it to yourself. When you go into a room you've been in before try to notice things in the room you never noticed before. Things like that.
