Afraid of what would happen if your dominant hand broke?
I will show you how to become ambidextrous!
Any input from people who have already successfully done this would be greatly appreciated.
Step 1: Day One
Today, practice your handwriting. Write your name and the alphabet, along with a few straight lines and a few circles or curves (useful for cursive as well as printing...letters are just lines and curves after all!), with your non dominant hand. Do it with your dominant hand first. See how pretty you write? This is the benchmark. This is how well you will write with your other hand when we're done.
If you're like me, on this the first day, your straight lines will look like bacon strips. Not to worry, you'll get better the more you practice.
Along with handwriting, try to do a few things consistently with your left hand. You want to be able to shave/put on makeup with your nondominant hand eventually, but for now, just put on your foundation with your left hand, or just shave one or two strokes.
Step 2: Day Two
Step 3: Day Three
Tip: Don't eat in public with your left hand until you've practiced a bit. Things could get messy.
Step 4: Day Four
*Eating with your left hand
*Wearing your watch on your right hand
*Practising handwriting with your left hand
*Getting ready for the day with your left hand
Tie your right hand behind your back for a little bit to make you do everything possible left handed. Only untie it when driving or doing other things which require the use of both hands.
Also, switch your mouse buttons to fit your new lefthandedness! To do that, go to control panel>printers and other hardware>mouse and click the button that says "switch mouse functions" or something like that at the top. This will switch the mouse button you use to select and right click, reversing them.
That's about it. Just keep doing these things and you should, given enough time, become ambidextrous!
