Challenge your Brain!

4 years, 2 months ago

I want you to imagine you are brushing your teeth… What hand are you using? Your right? Left?

How about when you use your mouse, the TV remote, door handles, pencils, musical instruments, you name it, what hand are you using?

Now think, do you ever use your OTHER hand for those tasks? your brain is in a routine of everyday motions that is an absolute bore for your brain. Give it a challenge!

I challenge you to use the other hand this time, whether it is brushing your hair or eating spaghetti.

Break the routine that you are in!

You’ll be suprised how mind-stimulating and difficult it is! :)

Feel free to post other ideas on how to challenge your brain in interesting ways :)

Haha, we did that once when we were in highschool, we went so far we learned to write with the other hand. Okay, it was still a mess but readable and we did it fast :) I did everything with my left hand for a week and it was fun having to think about what you are doing almost every second. I’m gonna do it again!

Thank you for the tip, the results are: i now have toothpaste in my hair, but at least the hair on my teeth are neatly combed, i have to reinstall all channels on my tv, I have only one coffee cup left, no more wine glasses….

;)
but , good thoughts, i have been writing with two hands out of practical reasons, for some years , it does stimulate, also i play guitar, it helps to improve fine motoring skills when training both hands in unusual tasks ;)

Another interesting thing you can do is when you write in a journal or notebook, which you probably should be doing regularly, is hold a pen in each hand and alternate hands for each letter, or word, depending on how ambidextruous you are.

Another one I’ve thought of, Learn to walk with your eyes closed to everything in your house! Unless there is something breakable around… then it is advised to not do this one, lol :)

@ ST- LMAO

Well, I’m clumsy naturally but today has been fun. Brushing my teeth was kind of easy but straightening my hair was a chore. Cooking was challenging but ended up tasty… my spatula skills weren’t as impressive. ;)
Washing dishes felt strange but I got through it…
All in all an interesting and fun experiment.

Using the mouse with the left hand is…odd. I switched back to my right hand for the sake of productivity, haha.
