What Are You?

Do you think from your Left Hemisphere or Right Hemisphere? I'm both but favor my right hemisphere. In my field of work I find this a very useful tip:

Relieve stress by understanding which brain hemisphere is stressed.
If you feel depressed or emotionally overwrought, your stress is in the right hemisphere--the creative, emotional, holistic side.
What to do: Switch to your matter-of-fact left hemisphere by doing math, writing factual prose or organizing. The emotional right brain will calm down.
If you feel time-stressed and overburdened, the left hemisphere is involved. Switch your right brain by singing or playing a sport.

It actually works, why not give it a try!

Oh it makes me crazy when I can't post new artwork! I have several pieces in the works however I won't post them until they're finished and I have such a fun idea for Illustration Friday's "communication." All projects were put on hold as we were away all weekend in Springfield, MO visiting family. Thankfully we arrived home safely as the forecast was for 10 inches of snow and I think we got about 5 here.

Back to the drawing board!

That IS interesting! I'd love to know more. I do know that what makes me feel best when I'm upset and overwhelmed is to order and organize the space around me. Now I know why ;D.
Xoxo,
