Here is a simple and very effective exercise to promote whole brain thinking or functioning.
- Think of “flow” as you hand write (not print) the alphabet as a continuous stream (keep your pen ON the paper) with your normal writing hand. A couple of times will do.
- While thinking of “flow” again, write out the alphabet in the same fashion using your OTHER hand.
- Now back to your normal hand, full alphabet. Continue alternating hands and writing the alphabet until you feel the same flow using either hand (about 5 times with each hand). Then with your normal hand write out the alphabet twice more at the end.
You may be surprised at the changes that occur as a result. Integrates language/information and artistry/creativity. Also, usually improves your handwriting.
