I often put my hands in my jacket pockets when I walk, especially when it is chilly out. It just feels like a natural thing to do. At the place I work, it is not allowed to walk with hands in pockets. They consider it a safety hazard - if you fall, you won't have hands to break your fall. At work, I don't put my hands in my pockets, but when I'm out walking I do. After putting my hand out when I fell in Okinawa and breaking my wrist bone, maybe it is not so good to use your hand when you fall. What do you think and/or do - hands in the pockets or not?
