Ever notice how much we're on auto-pilot? For instance, do you:
- Always put your socks and shoes on the same foot first?
- Sit in the same place at the kitchen table or in a class you regularly attend?
- Step forward with the same leg when you start walking?
There's a good chance you may not even be aware. Pay attention next time. If the answer is yes, try something different. If you always put a sock on your right foot first, start with your left foot instead. Sit in a different place at the table and enjoy a new view! Start with your other leg when you walk. These simple changes may feel surprisingly odd or awkward but it give it a go.
Small changes can make a big difference in how we feel, perceive and act. It makes us focus and keeps us in the present moment. Moreover, it builds new synapses and pathways in the brain. That improves our capacity for learning, unleashes creativity and increases powers of concentration...at any age!
