As I watched myself speak, I noticed that I cannot seem to keep my hands still. The rest of my body has good posture; my shoulders are back and my chin is up, but my hands are really distracting. Throughout the speech, I was subconsciously touching my hair and waving my hands around and I don't even remember why I was doing that. The throat chakra relates to issues with self expression and sharing feelings. I think this accurately describes why I was moving my hands a lot because I knew that I was going to tear up during my speech and I was really nervous about making myself vulnerable like that. It's hard enough to speak publicly in general, let alone doing it when you know you'll be emotional.
