Get Physical: I Wanna Hold Your Hand


Women tend to get stressed around this time of year for various reasons. If you're more stressed than usual this time of year then grab your husband, boyfriend or father's hand.
A recent study published in the December issue of the journal Psychological Science found that hand holding calms the body's reaction to stress.

Not married or in a relationship? Any male's hand will do but if you're opting to hold that cute stranger's hand sitting next to you on the subway, you may want to ask first.

So this weekend, to burn off some calories and stress, grab your man's hand and go for a nice long walk, just the two of you. If he's not into holding hands, tell him it's a matter of your health.
