An easy exercise in mindful presence.
This video of guys throwing with their “other hand” is both hilarious and curiously illuminating. It’s really funny how cockeyed and off-aim throwing with the other hand makes them.
But intentionally switching handedness—or any practice we do routinely—can be a kind of training. It forces you to be present, see things differently and engages different parts of the brain.
I’ve found that writing with the “other hand” produces a very different kind of writing: wilder, more personal, another voice within ourselves.
It’s just another way of waking ourselves up.
