Most people have been trained to become Left brain – in their jobs, at school or College. But today’s world needs you to be more creative, have more ideas and use your imagination.

Are you mostly a left-brainer? (‘Left brain’ people are often busy, systematic, notice details and have an orderly, common-sense approach to life.) If you are, you probably find generating new ideas or being imaginative (mostly Right brain skills) a bit of a challenge. But it doesn’t need to be.
You already have Right brain skills – it is just that school and work mostly reward left-brain thinking and practice. So your right brain gets a bit under-used. When you were very young you used all of your senses – seeing, hearing, touching, tasting and smelling things – that’s how you learned to understand your world.
To be creative and imaginative, you need to give your senses a chance to work again – this video has some pointers for practice. It is just one of the Memory Foundation’s many brain tools which help you improve your brain and grow new brain connections. Dr Allison Lamont PhD, MA, M.APS and Gillian Eadie MEd, BA, Dip Tchg focus on challenging your brain to grow the new brain connections you need as a buffer against memory loss in older age. Baby boomers need this information to keep brain fit! It’s a prescription-free way to fight back against Alzheimer’s and dementia. When you are 50+ is the best time to start.

Not sure if you are Left brain or Right brain?
You use your Right brain for things that engage your your creative side and Left brain for actions that require reasoning and logic. A ‘Right-brain’ people tend to be more relaxed, artistic and imaginative.
You’ve probably heard that people are supposed to be one or the other and, in a way, there is some evidence that each of the two hemispheres of the brain tend to be activated for different kinds of tasks.
But the truth is, of course, that EVERY memory task works better if ALL areas of the brain are used.
Keep your brain challenged and brain-fit, no matter what age you are. And come on over to for lots more about these topics.
