Are you looking for a fast memory strategy that can strengthen neural connections and even create new ones?
It’s easy! Change the hand you are using, right now, to control the computer mouse or touchpad.
It’s a great brain test!
What do you notice? Is it more difficult, especially to be precise and accurate? Do you feel like you did when you first learned to tie a bow, or to master some other intricate skill?
Don’t worry – the awkwardness is just because your brain is learning a new skill.
Try other brain building memory strategies using everyday actions.
- Shower with your eyes closed.
- Operate the TV remote or brush your teeth with your non-dominant hand.
- Sign your name with both hands simultaneously.
- Walk through the house with closed eyes, forcing your brain to reconstruct where the doors and furniture are.
These activities will feel very strange and awkward to start with, but you are forcing your brain connections to grow and make new connections to accommodate these novel activities.
Brain exercise can be fitted in anywhere, any time.
