The studies speak for themselves. Again and again, they confirm how coffee can elevate the mood and help with depression and how it makes us generally more positive. But did you know that how you hold your cup or mug also contributes to changes in your brain, and ultimately in your mood and attitude?
Indeed, a direct correlation has been established between a person’s general attitude and the manner in which he or she handles a coffee cup. For instance, people who cradle their cups in one or both hands are more likely to be nurturing or need nurturing. Holding a cup by the handle, on the other hand, has been associated with confidence and a desire for order.
In other words, how you hold your mug can help you become aware of your feelings and even of how you relate to a situation. And here’s the perk: simply switching how you hold that warm mug can shift your awareness, mood or attitude.
