Angry? Use your other hand

New research suggests that we can control our anger by using our "wrong hand" for basic tasks like using a computer mouse, unlocking a door or stirring our coffee.

Research from the University of New South Wales indicates that using our non-dominant hand can help us to develop self-control and keep a lid on aggression.

In one experiment, participants were mildly insulted by another student and were given the option of retaliating with a blast of white noise. Those who had practised self-control responded less aggressively.

Does it work for you?
