Get by with a little help from my friends

Monday, May 01, 2017

Sharing this with all as every little bit helps.

As I was working out this A.M and walked over to the blah, blah box(my T.V.) I heard the host ask her guest about their subject matter (Alzheimers) and picked up this useful information.
Working out your brain and thought processing etc using your hands by alternating their use.
Simply exchange your left to do right functions or vice versa. In other words if you're right handed then write with your left hand, or if you catch a ball with your left hand then change and catch with your right hand. Etc,etc. You can practice this in so many ways to keep a strong brain processing system.
Did you know that if you're in medical school and going to study surgery you have to be able to perform surgeries with your left hand as you can't be walking around to the other side of the operating table. So they are forced to work with only their "left" during their studies.
Funny how just be "listening" our brains are soaking up information and providing us with a form of exercise to strengthen our brains.
When it comes to exercise "Just Keep On Movin On" emoticon

    Food for thought, thanks for sharing. When I was in school I used to entertain myself by taking notes and doodling left handed. I haven't done that in ages now and even trying to brush my teeth left-handed is super awkward. I think I'll give this a try also! I'm getting arthritis in my wrists and it's definitely worse in my right hand, so this will probably end up being very practical for me in the long run!

    Interesting. Most in my family are essentially ambidextrous, We routinely switch our use of hands.

    Very interesting! I was forced to learn to use my left in a hurry when a break revealed a destroyed humerus from a failed elbow replacement. One year later of whole arm slings, casts and surgeries, I had to use my left for everything!! Now I prefer it for most things except writing.

    Love my exercise, but only over at Mom's can I exercise in front of a TV as I don't have one.
