Some of us are ambidextrous, most of us are not which leads to using one hand, leg, side more than the other and therefore more likely to hold tension. The flip side is the less used side may become weaker. So what can you do? Here are some ideas:
- Swap hands when you brush your teeth
- Note which foot you step out with and swap if you find it is usually one side
- Carry your baby/bag/s evenly, swap shoulders/hands
- Do cross Crawl exercises (raise left arm and bring up right leg then bring them together. Repeat with other side).
- March on the spot
- Origami (get the brain going)
- Put your mouse/phone on the other side
- Sleep on the other side of your bed
- Dance and sing at the same time
Food that loves you right back:
Have a look at what you are about to put into yourself and ask this simple question: "Are you going to love me as much as I love you?"
