Do you ever find yourself walking with one fist (not a clenched fist in my case) against your chest/abdomen like where the sternum ends and meets the abdomen and your other hand laying over that hand, almost like the position they put someone's hands in when they are in a casket? I find myself doing this when content, happy, out walking in a nice place on a nice day enjoying the outside without anything in particular to do when it's kind of cool. I think I've probably done it when nervous too. Also I wonder if it isn't for stability as well; it does give a certain sense of stability to your body.

I walk like that a lot. I'm usually content when doing that, but I'm sometimes borderline worried and alert.

Don't stop the behavior, be yourself!
