How To Celebrate National Left-Handers Day!

Most people in the world are right handed – somewhere between 70% - 95%. This is true no matter the area, race, or class of the population. That’s a lot of right-handed people! This leaves only 5% - 30% of left-handed people in the world, and August 13 th is the day to celebrate your left-handedness!

One fun way to celebrate this day is by helping your right-handed friends and family members learn what it’s like to adapt to life in a left-handed world, since you have to adapt to a right-handed world every day!

Below are a few fun ways to create your own left-handed world! Get your right-handed friends, family, or coworkers to use their left hands to:

  • Make coffee
  • Peel fruits or veggies (careful using knives, though!)
  • Use microwave controls
  • Draw a straight line on a piece of paper
  • Use the computer mouse to draw a shape on the screen or to click and drag an icon
  • Cut a straight line or a shape with a pair of scissors
  • Pour milk or water into a glass
  • Flip any instruments around and play left-handed (guitars are great for this!)

Here at Coastal Periodontics, we love our left-handed patients! Make an appointment with our office so we can celebrate National Left-Handed Day with all of you!

To make an appointment with Dr. Kate Wilson, please contact Coastal Periodontics, located in sunny Portsmouth, New Hampshire!
