Rewiring the brain

Brain rewiring = Unearthing new worlds

As you may already know, like all the other parts of the body, the brain needs exercise too. We have to challenge our brains once in a while. Learning something new or solving a puzzle is one way to go about it. However, I would like to recommend something different. How about you try to do something that you do everyday, differently? Or better yet, more efficiently? I recently had this thought about rewiring the brain. Its not that complicated. It can be incorporated into anything that you do on a daily basis like brushing your teeth with the other hand or compose a new tune by yourself.

I am right handed. So I’ve learnt drums in such a way that the right hand is always treated as the dominant one. Now I have a bizarre drum teacher who recommends trying every thing with both hands. Learning to do this has changed me. I never thought it would be so useful. Now I can play drums with my hands switched. It also feels easier now to play different things simultaneously on different hands. I could feel it happen in my head as I was learning to do it. It felt good. You feel a kind of opposing force as you try to do it. Once you start to get the hang of it you feel like a whole new world has opened up. It feels like a dormant part of your brain has all of a sudden started to function. It is an unbelievable experience and I think everyone should try it.

I watched The Arrival last weekend. It might have inspired me to make this post! It explains how learning something new can completely change the way we think.

I was watching a movie today when the person sitting next to me got a phone call. I was so immersed in the movie that it did not disturb me at all. I did not pay any attention to the conversation. I was enjoying the movie thoroughly(movie was Jason Bourne). Even if I had tried to listen, I wouldn’t have understood anything because I don’t speak the local language. After the movie ended, as I was walking out of the cinema, it suddenly struck me that this person was speaking in a language that I totally knew and I also remembered exactly what he said! It felt a little weird knowing that my brain was recording stuff happening around me even if I wasn’t paying attention to it. Funny enough, there were scenes like this in the movie too! Aha! So that’s how hypnotists work!
