Brrr! It’s cold outside and the American economy is freezing. But a new Yale University study might help us warm things up a bit. This study showed that simply holding a warm beverage in your hands can help you to think more positively of others. In fact, it can even help you feel that someone is “generous, sociable and good-natured.” So if you and your sweetie are sitting down to have a serious financial discussion this winter, it can’t hurt to make some hot cocoa beforehand!
