Deepak Chopra was a guest on the Dr. Oz show this week, shared his belief that accessing your Super Brain allows you to stay young and keep your memory strong.
You can rewire your brain with certain activities, and as Mr Chopra quoted, “Neurons that fire together, wire together”. One activity that we can all do right now, is to do something with our other hand.
When I was in my teens, I broke my left arm and was in a cast for 8 weeks. I had to take notes in school, so I tried my best to scribble some sentences and over time, I learned how to write with my right hand. I often wrote in my journals with my right hand, not really knowing anything about the power this had to help rewire my brain.
It’s been years since I’ve practiced, and as I wrote out these few sentences, I realized how much I had lost of this ability. It took me at least 5 times as long to write the second paragraph as it did the first.
However, knowing the benefits of this and other activities done with my alternate hand, I will practice at least one activity each day using my right hand. If this will help my brain, I’m all for it!
