OPPOSITE DAY!


FOR A FULL DAY, USE ONLY YOUR NON-DOMINATE SIDE!

Challenge yourself once a week to do everything for one day with your opposite hand. From brushing your teeth, putting soap in your hand, picking up items, etc... It will be a challenge just to discover how much you use your dominate hand subconsciously when you try not to.


It is believed that use of our non-dominate side makes us smarter. I personally believe this because it first of all makes sense that if one side of our brain operates one side and the other operates the other side, and we force the side that we don't normally use to function, that we are using more of our brain and being smarter. But just in case you're looking for hard facts, click this link to go read what some brain people have to say about it: BrainFacts.org


Now there are some things that I can state as fact from my expertise in the fitness and combat world. Working our non-dominate side improves balance, evens out muscle development, humbles the ego, and calms the mind. The day that you choose to work with your non-dominate side can be a very frustrating day at first if you're truly following through with the process. This will leave you to either quit or calm your mind and be more patient. If you choose to stick with it, you will learn a patience and calm that will follow you into your daily life.


WARNING!!! Do not to use your non-dominate side for tasks that can be dangerous. Do this drill with safety in mind first and always.
