Is cuddling good – especially for men – in marriage? Do baths make you feel less lonely, is Google really making you stupid, how does your body language affect your feelings, and….is that your cell phone vibrating? In this 2nd Psych Files brief I take a look at some of the more interesting psychological research circling around the web this past month.
I’ll talk about a favorite topic of many people – body language – and how your body posture can affect the way you feel. This is all part of the growing and fascinating subfield of Psychology called Embodied Cognition.
