Ever wish you could be a kid again? When you use your nondominant hand, you might as well be two years old -- you have to work a lot harder to do the everyday tasks you probably never think twice about doing. And this has a surprising benefit. Using the non-dominant hand "can help us become more flexible and discover that we are never too old to learn new tricks," writes Jan Chozen Bays, M.D., in her new mindfulness primer "How to Train a Wild Elephant." "When we develop a new skill, we realize that there are many other abilities lying dormant in us." So, today, take as many opportunities as you can to use your other hand to brush your teeth, apply lip gloss, eat, or even write.
