Sharif told me the other day about an article he had read that suggested stimulating new brain activity by showering with your eyes closed or brushing your teeth with your non-dominant hand. Fairly inevitably, I took this as a challenge. The blind showering actually went quite smoothly- I was rather proud of myself for remembering (eyes still closed) that although the shampoo and conditioner bottles are the same shape, the conditioner is harder to squeeze and therefore more dented. Brushing my teeth with my left hand, though, proved far more difficult than expected. It’s funny watching in the mirror as I’m struggling to do a good job with the toothbrush, and noticing my right hand making vague brushing motions in the air, in a vain attempt to help out.

Change of routine! It’s like a vacation, except without any of the actual going places and having fun*!



*OK, it is a little fun.

It sounds like kind of fun. But I have to bathe because when I try to shower it floods the bathroom.

I have tried to brush with my left hand before, but failed and ended up using my right hand to finish the job. I will do it tonight, and just brush slowly, probably.

After a few tries, I'm getting slightly better at the left-handed brushing. But it still happens very sloooooowly.

I wish I had a bathtub in my room of washing- but as an everyday thing, I am glad I have the shower.

Yeah, I love baths, but... well, they take longer, and use more water. I don't pay for water or anything, but I do try not to waste the stuff.

Some mornings (because I am very very tired) I shower with my eyes closed and I have felt a difference in my overall attitude during the day. Hmmm...

I tried to brush my teeth with the other hand this evening and I scraped my gums...not fun!

Interesting! I've only tried it so far on days when I've showered in the evening- I shall have to attempt an eyes-closed morning shower and see what it does for my mood.

I think I'm getting better with the brushing- at least, it's less painful now. It's still a very slow process.
