Work on becoming more ambidextrous? Hold your fork with your "bad" hand?
Lately I've been trying to become more ambidextrous, trying to write more with my left hand even though it's slower and doesn't look as good. It seems like a good way to increase muscle control?
I'm kind of interested in people becoming more ambidextrous with their knife and fork, for example, if they always hold the fork in their right hand, holding it instead in their left hand. In my case I live on a unique diet, all milk, and I was experimenting with drinking from two jugs of milk, one on my left and one on my right, going back and forth between the two in one drinking session (in other words, I had two jugs on the table.) I noticed that when the milk hit my stomach, it felt like the milk was much more evenly distributed both on the left and right of my stomach, it's like the food finds a different route to your stomach depending on which hand you drink with, and by drinking with both hands back and forth it was getting distributed more evenly in my stomach than when I only drank from one jug with my right hand. It was a pleasant feeling to be more balanced.
I wonder why our society, our parents and our schools, doesn't do more to encourage ambidexterity?
