Research Says Knocking On Wood Can Help

Teri Landreth Townsquare Media

Do you ever say “I hope it all works out, knock on wood…” and then you actually knock on wood?  Does knocking on wood really help?  Well, according to this bit of research, yes! 

According to researchers, knocking on wood can actually turn around your bad luck because you’re physically “knocking” negative forces away from your body, which help to alleviate any negative thoughts or worries.  So the next time you feel a little anxious over a situation, give it a try and see if it helps, and I hope it does, knock on wood! 

You know, I’ve always thought this was kind of a superstition, kind of the “don’t step on a crack, you’ll break your mother’s back…” sort of thing.  However, I actually knew someone who really wouldn’t step on a crack because of this superstition!  Do you yourself, or someone you know have any superstitions?
