Left hand dominant. Practicing this skill by using my right hand for every tasks such as cooking, brushing teeth touchpad on laptop and writing brief notes. Hoping to one day be able to write two different sentences at the same time, one with each hand. 4 weeks ago

alizaI don't think

this is something you really just “become”. I mean, unless you really, really, truly want to and practice at it all the time. But no. Taking it off my list.
Although I do need to use my left hand frequently, and use it very well, I don’t need to or really wish to become ambidextrous. 5 months ago

So here is a tip if people still come on here. Rather than write the alphabet, write “the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” because it has every letter in it. Of course, you don’t actually become ambidextrous jut by writing. So it’s also a good idea to use your opposite hand to do things. Like eat. I’m eating right now by eating with my left hand. I eat like a 3 year old, ice cream all over my face :) Not to mention my writing looks like I’m 3 too. 8 months ago

Realize we have a lot more opportunities than we think to do this. Brushing your teeth, the hand with which you eat, throwing and playing catch, they all help develop our motor and finer motor skills needed in writing or painting or anything at all. Play every fun game you can think of in reverse, hand wise. Brush your hair differently. A year ago I could say I was ambidextrous because I could write with both hands. But I say the goal has been complete this year because that was when I started picking up the pencil and drawing mindlessly with the other hand, when I tossed on the “wrong” glove and played catch without realizing it, and began playing badminton alternating hands when I needed to without issue, and discovering strengths in both and refining their weak spots. The more we practice the better we become, but so long as we limit what we practice with the time it takes to learn becomes much longer. I’m cheering for all of you! :) 11 months ago

ρяιмяσѕє I've been practicing.

Lately (for about a week now) I have been trying to do as many things as possible with my left hand, including texting and writing with it. I think it’s working. :3 11 months ago
