Right OR Left-Handed

What it says about you? Why do some people use their right hand while others favour the left? And how can it affect your life? we look at some research into the great left-right divide By Sarah Marinos.

Sporting advantage : If I am a right -hander or right -fter and come up against a left-handed opponent, I'll find it harder to win because I 'll be less famillar with a left-handed competior's moves and tactice. Some people also suggest the wiring of a left-hander's brain gives them an edge in hand-eys coordination and better balance-both valuable on the Sports field.

right handed sports people need both sides of the brain for these tasks which can add a tiny FRACTION OF A SECOND to Their reaction time.

Injury risk: Off the road,however, right- handers are less likely to unintentionally injure themselves..
If you're right -handed,you're probably not seen as being as clumsy..this is me...
More parents of Left- handers rated their child as "More clumsy than average"
we seek advice from the experts.

Did you know that being left or right-handed is probably determined before birth ? Or that research is linking left or right-handedness with a range of lifestyle and health factors?

Dearest Michiko,
Funny that they label them so different and my question is WHY would left handers be more clumsy?
When we both go biking, my husband still keeps telling me that I get onto my bike from the wrong side (on the right side). And the bike stand is on the left, I have always a problem with that. When I do wring a cloth, I also do it different and also for tying shoe laces or tying any knot. Guess that makes me a hybrid; half right and half left handed...?!
Sending you hugs and sunshine,

My daughter is a left hander. I am a right! Try to show her to knit is hard when she is little. Thank you for your comments Michiko! Wish you a lovely day for golfing. It's cold here this morning, my finger near fall off holding the camera. Been out early for sunrise. Take care my friend! Mei

Hi Michiko san. I've heard that left-handed pitchers do have advantage in baseball. This was an interesting post!

Oh, I remember one of my classmate was left handed when I was a school girl and she had some trouble for classes as well beside the daily life. But I heard they tend to be so talented like Tamago-san said.

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear Japanese friend in Australia, xoxo Miyako*
