How hand temperature relates to stress. The basic rule for interpreting temperature change is simple: “Warm hands are relaxed, Cold hands are tense.” Under stress muscles tense and blood flow is restricted to the main body and shut down from the hands and feet.
When the body’s fight or flight system is activated the muscles tense, heart rate speeds up and blood flow is redirected from the extremities to the muscles, heart and vital organs. As a result finger temperature can show changes of 5 degrees or more in seconds as you prepare to fight or flee a dangerous situation. Our bodies perceive everyday stressors (traffic, deadlines, money, etc.) as an emergency flight or fight event. The amount of temperature change depends on the stressor or problem and how you react to it.
