Impact of Cognitive Balance on Mental Activities
Results of recent research lack coping with the rapidly demanding labor market and the know how to employ graduates of universities as a distinguished product in the labor market. The body of knowledge includes many empirical evidences on the unintentional focus on one side of brain functioning without having an equal focus on the other side of the brain functioning. This consequently is an input to the brain imbalance which has its negative impacts on the educational process. In this research a survey is used to measure the percentages of memorization and of generating innovative solutions to problems and a quantitative methodology is applied by using the experimental design approach. In this research the impact of adding the brain balance activities is measured by having the survey data collected twice; once before the use of brain balance activities and another one after using it. The experiment was applied on 100 undergraduates at the Higher Colleges of Technology. The results revealed the significance of differences between the results achieved before using the brain balance activities and after it. The paper tested four research hypotheses and all null hypotheses were rejected and alternative ones were accepted. The conclusion of the research uncovers the importance of the use of brain balance activities whatever is the gender, and the type of the course. The recommendations of the study reinforce the use of brain balance activities in increasing attention and avoiding boredom and lost interest by students which are indicators of imbalance in brain functioning.

Then prepare the delivery tool in two modes
first one is focusing only on one side of the brain and the second one is focusing on both sides of the brain
Then run the experiment on the same group before and after and measure the difference using one sample T-test.
