Warm Hands?

Have you ever heard the old saying "warm hands, cold heart"? Well, there is actually scientific evidence that indicates the opposite is true. Lawrence Williams, PhD, assistant professor at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and John A. Bargh, PhD, professor of Psychology at Yale University, (2008) conducted two studies on undergraduate students to assess how temperatures affect emotions. They found that holding warm things may actually make people view others more favorably and may also make people more generous.
