Default double cover as a defensive move

I've noticed when I'm boxing and I get rushed by an opponent I'll put my head down and cover up as an instinctive reaction. it's only for a split second but its a problem. I realise I do it because my arms aren't long enough to protect both my head and body at the same time so I tuck my chin into my chest (more than usual) to make the target smaller. I can keep my eyes on an opponent if I keep my head at a normal level but that leaves my body as an open target.

in short, my question is. would it be better to use the double cover to protect my head so I can see the punches or cover the body and move my head?

just try to stay relaxed, focused on the openings and like Macdaddy said: move your head, move your feet and get out of the bad position.

"Few men are born brave; many become so through training and force of discipline."

Just teach yourself to do it is what I'm saying. Have an alternative reaction, I used to have that problem now what I do is instinctively move to the side and throw a straight punch to the head, or if that isn't an option stand my ground and punch their body hard.

say that you've been swatting an opponents jab, blocking them like a partial wax on wax off motion. First thing that I put in my mind is feint the jab, turn a hook and he'll eat it. A little later you pull it out and it works like a charm........Rockin'

If u gon swap a jab, make sure its a lazy jab..
and i sometimes swap (more of a push his jab to the left) the jab with my right hand and shoot my overhand right over his shoulder and pivot to my right, orthodox speaking
