cross-arms-wp

Do you need willpower to avoid a fatty treat, or stop yourself from buying new shoes you don’t need? Cross your arms! It’s a defensive posture that subconsciously tells your brain that you’re closed off to whatever you were considering eating or buying. Another trick? Squeeze something – even your steering wheel or just make a tight fist. It stimulates the brain area that regulates self-control.
