I was told that on the left side of your brain you had: logic , rational , math skills etc..and on your right side of your brain you had : artistic skills etc.. Now chess is mostly calculations so how can it combines both sides and can enhance creativity(right side of your brain)??.
Now I have high blood pressure so I do zen meditation to relax etc.. and it works but when I go to Yahoo chess and play chess it raise my blood pressure and makes me tense. Should I use a chess program instead? that way it will take me time to think & make my moves?/
