Yesterday, a friend kindly captured how I have learned how to use both sides of my brain and body. I asked him to capture my use of my brain and body through the skills that I have been working on for the past 18 years. I have not arrived at all I am working to accomplish, but I have made huge strides. I am glad that I stuck with the process and did not give up when I was not making specific gains. The time and commitment that I have put into working on sequences of information — through repetitive mirrored movements — has helped me to accomplish what I never dreamed possible.

I have used repetitive mirrored movements on both sides of my body to help me overcome a learning disability. Because I have a difficulty learning and remembering sequences of information, what comes easily for others takes a lot longer for me. Knowing this about myself, I know that in order to become more proficient in my abilities I need to put in a lot more work. Consequently, as I put in time and repetition into learning sequences of information I develop the muscle memory, which makes me more proficient.
I will be 59 years old in a month and a half. I share this bit of trivia with you to encourage you to start and keep moving forward, regardless of your age. Don’t put limits on yourself and don’t let anyone else put limits on you. We succeed by not giving up.
What I Discovered through engaging in Repetitive Mirrored Movement
Several years ago I had no idea of what I could accomplish through running my own race and staying committed to my own course. If you have not already started a program, I would encourage you to start today. As in my case, I developed a program and added on to the program over time. So don’t be discouraged if you think your progress is slow. It seemed slow for me too. By staying committed to and adding to my program, I made consistent gains. Using repetitive mirrored movements has improved my muscle memory, which has helped overcome my learning disability.
My encouragement to you is to start a program. A program that will help to progressively improve your balance and coordination. A program that will engage both sides of your brain and body. A program that will work for you. A program that you will enjoy. A program that you will commit yourself to, three or more times a week. A program of repetitive mirrored movements that will enhance your quality of life and well-being my friend.
A brain injury, stroke or some other type of injury no longer has to limit you, your abilities or your quality of life.
A program that will improve your mental acuity to increase your body awareness, muscle memory, focus, and concentration. A program that will help you build your self-esteem and understanding of yourself. A program that will teach you how to draw a straight line. A program that will help you to create beyond the straight line. If you have not started, I would be happy to give you some suggestions. Reach out to me and I will reach back to you.
