An Observation About Hands

HSP Observations

I talk to customers and volunteers at my workplace virtually daily, and I need help. What, exactly, is one supposed to do with one’s hands while talking to a stranger standing up? Crossing your arms apparently sends negative vibes (even if you only do it for comfort), but letting them just hang by your sides is somehow unnatural. Stick them in pockets? Is this why skirts with pockets are such a Thing? Do I need to buy a skirt with pockets? I’m currently doing a restless talk with hands – cross arms to listen – remember that shouldn’t cross arms – uncross and fiddle with shirt hem – try one hand on waist – feel silly – try both hands on waist – feel even sillier – hope customer will stop talking so I can start talking with my hands again routine.

Maybe skirt with pockets.
