Relaxing by the Water

he mere act of clenching, for example, can enhance memory: balling up your right hand activates the left side of your brain, associated with encoding information, while clenching your left triggers your right hemisphere’s recall function.

Making a left fist also focuses your mind when under stress. In a German study, athletes significantly improved their performance in high-pressure situations when they did so. In a process called “hemisphere-specific priming”, the gesture kick-starts regions of your brain linked to mechanical actions, discouraging the kind of over-thinking that can lead to panic.Another paper reported that you can boost your ability to “withstand immediate pain, overcome food temptation, consume unpleasant medicines and attend to… essential information” – all by hacking cognitive processes through the action of clenching your hand muscles. So, when you’re against the ropes, do as the Greatest did and make a good fist of it
