Simple Fix for Tight Muscles

My masseuse could tell right away that I’m right-handed because of how tense my right arm and neck were.

[I say ‘my masseuse’ because it sounds fancy. But really I was just cashing in on a free one-time massage coupon I won in a charity raffle.]

I’ve noticed my fingers and wrist aching after a lot of writing, but I had no idea my right-dominance inflicted soreness all the way up to my neck! 

She suggested doing as much with my left hand as possible, and let me tell you – it’s a hard habit to build. I am so clumsy when I try to eat, stir, or even click with my left hand, and yet, at the same time, it’s made me notice just how much I rely on my right hand for everything. 

Simple Fix: practice using your non-dominant hand as much as you can. Be strong.
