Rubbing your forehead
Stress taxes your brain, leaving a foggy mind and a lack of focus in its wake. Body language experts say that a stressed individual will touch and rub the centre of her forehead more often than a calm person. It’s believed that this movement is an attempt to massage away stress and boost brain clarity.
The fix: Dr. Kerr says that rubbing your forehead can be an early sign that a headache is coming on. Take deep breaths to help kick start your circulation and eliminate any cloudiness in your head. Go for a brief, brisk walk to get your blood flowing. You’ll feel more awake and less anxious.
