We know that your thoughts can affect your body, but did you know that your body can also affect your thoughts? Your body language speaks volumes about your feelings and energy; we’ve all seen people who close in on themselves or conversely, who stand tall and claim space.
What do you do if you need to feel powerful but all you feel is scared and insecure? You stand in a power pose. They’ve done studies that show that putting yourself in the Wonder Woman/Superman pose has incredibly positive effects on your psyche and energy. Where once you felt a lack of confidence, simply standing in that pose for two minutes, changes your body chemistry and brings about a psychological shift as well.
I watched the below TED talk years ago and this always stuck with me. The simplicity of standing like Wonder Woman/Superman for even 30 seconds, and suddenly I felt empowered emotionally. Every part of me became present and I knew I could handle any challenge ahead.
If you want to learn more, I encourage you to watch this TED talk and give it a try. It is brilliantly empowering.
Me, just sharing ways to make you the best you can be!
