It helps: the brain to learn new skills, and you never know, it could come in handy if you ever have to put your right hand in a cast or develop tendinitis in your rt wrist! ;) According to neurobiologist, Lawrence Katz, using your non-dominant hand can help develop the neurological pathways in the opposite side of your brain.Learning a new skill, getting adequate sleep and exercise, all help your brain!
