This may seem like an odd skill to pursue… But as an avid juggler - it makes total sense.

Brushing my teeth

For the last 24 years I have been brushing my teeth my my left hand. Thinking back, I can’t exactly remember why I started, but it was totally most likely juggling related. I remember it took about 6 months for it to feel natural, and I guess my teeth suffered a little because of it. But the interesting thing is, it now feels weird to brush my teeth my my right hand. I can still do it obviously, but it feels a little off.

Other skills

I also practiced shuffling decks of cards with my left card, and that also now feels natural. For a while I was also working on writing with my left hand. But I never really followed through with that skill. I can do it, but I have to really take my time and focus.

The outcome

I’m not sure there really is any benefit?

I have the feeling it helped with my juggling, and its a pretty interesting 2 minute conversation… But apart from that? Maybe there are some kind of neurological benefits?

Who knows… someone smarter than me probably.
