Free memory improvement!

HT Angel.

According to this article, an easy/free/not obvious way to help one's memory is to move one's eyes horizontally back and forth for at least 30 seconds. It apparently engages both sides of the brain simultaneously; my guess is that the activity strengthens the corpus callosum; this brought to mind exercises my mother uses when tutoring dyslexic children. These exercises involve "crossing the midline" - i.e. using the right hand/leg to perform a task on the left side, and vice versa. Try it.

My partner can use both hands to write and draw, I forget what it's called but he does as good with both hands and can draw cartoon standard drawings with both and colour them in. Amazing!

Thanks for your visit and your input x

English Rose, I believe the word is ambidextrous. My younger brother is too. Keep up the blogging!
