Hold Hands to be Calm

We are all looking for ways to reduce our stress and it may be as close as our partner’s hand. Psychology experts at the University of Virginia discovered that when married couples held hands when placed under stressful situations, they were calmer. This was evidenced by functional MRI’s of the brain. We know human touch is comforting, so of course this makes sense. Reach out and touch the person you love!
