Grow Your Brain While Brushing Your Teeth!

Grow Your Brain While Brushing Your Teeth!

Add a little brain strengthening to your morning routine by brushing your teeth with your non-dominant hand!

The brain is like a muscle – the more it is used, the more it grows, adapts, and rewires itself.

Doing simple daily tasks, like brushing with your opposite hand, will force your brain to use the opposite hemispheres – building and strengthening existing neural pathways and creating new ones!

Studies show that exercising your brain can lead to better focus, memory, and creativity.

Brushing with your opposite hand can also lead to better oral hygiene as well. Using your non-dominant hand may cause you to reach parts of your mouth that you would have missed with your regular routine.

It’s a win win! Why not start your day off tomorrow with a better mind and a better mouth by switching it up.
