PROS OF BEING AMBIDEXTROUS

Remember Viru Sahastrabudhhe (aka. Virus) from 3 Idiots who had trained his mind to write with both hands. In short, he was ambidextrous. This word finds its root in Latin. Ambi means ‘both’ and Dexter stands for ‘right’ or favorable. An example of cross Dominance, ambidexterity is the ability of a person to use both hands with precision. Very rarely people are born ambidextrous but with good practice one can learn the art of being mixed-handed (also called as Penwald ambidexterity). Ambidexterity is encouraged in activities like typing on a computer, playing basketball or the music keyboard.

“PRACTICE ALL THE OPERATIONS, PERFORMING THEM WITH EACH HAND AND WITH BOTH TOGETHER-FOR THEY ARE BOTH ALIKE-YOUR OBJECT BEING READY TO ATTAIN
ABILITY,GRACE,SPEED,PAINLESSNESS,ELEGANCE AND READINESS.”
HIPPOCRATES

Extensively making use of right hand makes you vulnerable to carpel tunnel syndrome. Being ambidextrous means balancing the usage of hands. Instead of putting the burden on your right or left hand, sharing the load fastens up work .Mahatma Gandhi, Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Albert Einstein, Alexander Fleming, Nikola Tesla, Ludwig van Beethoven, Michael Jordan, Maria Sharapova, Pele are names of prominent mixed handers.

Ambidexterity in sports is much of booster to reach the top. Balancing of mind enhances better thinking. Studies on ambidexterity reveal that mixed handers are good at reading people, analyzing both sides of an issue and furthermore recall events with ease. Scientifically the corpus callosum (collection of nerve fibers that connect our brain hemispheres), is lot thicker in mixed handers.

“IT OUGHT TO BE CONSIDERED THE CORRECT THING THAT THE MAN, WHO POSSESSES TWO SETS OF LIMBS, FIT BOTH FOR OFFENSIVE AND DEFENSIVE ACTION, SHOULD, SO FAR AS
POSSIBLE, SUFFER NEITHER OF THESE TO GO UNPRACTICED OR TAUGHT.”
PLATO

We are taught to use either of the hands (but not both) right from birth, needlessly wasting half of the body and brain. With ambidexterity you are free to use any hand of your choice.If you haven’t started yet, then get to work now! Train the hemispheres of your brain to master the art of Ambidexterity.
