Write backward. The brain’s right side controls the left hand and specializes in “assessing your physical and mental feelings.” Try writing right to left, rather than left to right. “Just moving your hand backward fires the right-brain hemisphere.”
Converse bilaterally. Take a pencil in your right hand (even if you’re left-handed) and write “How’s it going?” Then switch to the left and “write whatever pops up.” Tidiness isn’t important; “it’s noticing that your twin hemispheres have different personalities.”
Learn new moves. Moving in an unfamiliar way can “build your overall right-brain facility.” Normally, your arms swing opposite your legs. Try walking with your right arm and leg going forward simultaneously, then with your left arm and leg doing the same. Soon enough, the brain catches on, making an “initially hard” activity easy.
