Food for Thought
“I am a scientist. A mathematician. I love the familiar. I categorise. I am accurate. Linear. Analytical. Strategic. I am practical. Always in control. A master of words and language. Realistic. I calculate equations and play with numbers. I am order. I am logic. I know exactly who I am. I am the left brain”
“I am creative. A free spirit. I am passion. Yearning. Sensuality. I am the sound of roaring laughter. I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feet. I am movement. Vivid colours. I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas. I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel. I am everything I wanted to be. I am the right brain”
Just as the brain represents two sides of control, we can interrelates this to Yin and Yang. Thinking from both a scientific and intuitive manner can offer a more holistic perception to health, relationships and life. If you are dominated by one side of the brain, then today try something new! Bring balance into your life. If you are left side dominated search for something unfamiliar to yourself. If you are right side dominated perhaps bring some more clarity and structure that can make you progress in your dreams and aspirations.
It will offer you personal growth, excitement, you will learn new values and see things in different and clearer perspective. It doesn't have to be a big shift, but you could introduce a new food you have not eaten before, try that Tai Chi or yoga class you have wanted for so long, buy a blank canvas to paint, sign up to the gym, quit smoking, eat 1 piece of fruit per day, start writing a journal, take your partner for a random date....you get the idea. Make a positive influence to your surroundings that you will benefit from.
