You're getting warmer.
Who needs gloves? Certainly not these monks. A study conducted by a group of doctors in 1981 amongst Tibetan monks found that the subjects, while meditating, could increase the temperatures in their fingers and toes by as much as 8.3 degrees Centigrade.
Because meditative practices are associated with decreased activity of the sympathetic nervous system, some people can willfully warm themselves!
