There have been plenty of studies about the two hemispheres of the brain. And apparently the latest brain research indicates that the often referred to left-brained=analytical and right-brained=creative is more of a myth than actual science. But I can’t help but to think that there has to be some truth to it!
I picked up this lovely graphic from Dana @unearthingthespud
It pretty much sums up how I feel about myself on days that my creativity is flowing. On the other days, I just feel unmotivated and pretty much lazy. So, I’m not sure the lazy part is because I’m ruled by my right-brain, but I know that I’m less likely to do anything when I don’t feel “the juices”. Unfortunately, the creativity isn’t always on and when it is, it’s not usually geared toward cleaning, planning, and arranging my house.
I am working on finding ways to harness my creativity to help me to be the smooth operator of my house! I am currently reading the book, “Organizing from the Right Side of the Brain” by Lee Silber.
So far, I am enjoying it…especially since it’s written in a way that I can skip around. I don’t have to read it chapter by chapter. I look at the table of contents and find what interests me. I will be sharing some tips and tidbits from this book along the way!
