Want to Be Stronger and Live Longer? Use the Opposite Hand


Something as simple as brushing your teeth with your opposite hand can strengthen your brain. Changing your routines exercises different, seldom-used pathways in your brain, keeping cells younger and stronger. 

Of course, not every little change works your brain enough to make a difference. For instance, writing in pencil instead of writing in pen won’t help any. it’s not a big enough change. Writing with the opposite hand will. Or, if you use a computer, try moving your mouse with the opposite hand. 

Exercises like these are called neurobics.  To work, they must involve at least one of your senses (taste, touch, sight, smell, sound), keep your attention engaged, and switch up your routine in a surprising way.  Try one of these “workouts” and see if you get results.
