Backwards Thinking

Backwards thinking is where you practice looking at things the opposite of the way they are normally presented. This is like counting backward -- 10, 9, 8, 7 and so on. Or thinking of a bird flying upside down instread of right side up. This may seem kind of fun or silly, but it is good practice in beginning to look at things around you in new and creative ways.
