· According to Women’s Health magazine, if you are about to start crying at an inappropriate moment, all you have to do is simply clear your throat. Here’s how it works:
“After you clear your throat, you tend to swallow. This lifts your tongue to the roof of your mouth, which blocks the soft palate, making you unable to cry.” Rebecca Nagy, a Charlotte, North Carolina-based meditation expert, says, “It interrupts the mechanism in the nasal passage and larynx that controls crying.”
Pretty amazing, right? Next time you feel like you are about to tear up when you shouldn’t, try this technique.
