Did you know your body can make you happy? I’m not talking about being happy with your body (although that is important). I’m talking about body language and how a simple pose can actually make you happy. Simply standing up nice and tall, keeping a smile on your face (no matter what), dancing, etc. will get your endorphins jumping up and down with excitement and fuel your happy place.
But if you are looking for more happiness and confidence…
Try standing just like Wonder Woman in the picture here, with your hands on your hips like she’s doing or with your arms outstretched as if you are about to give someone a huge hug. This is THE power pose of all power poses and it can radically change your life by doing it for a short time every day…by doing it before you enter a stressful situation…by doing it any time you feel like you need a little boost.
You’ll be amazed at how different you will feel. I know I was. If you’d like more information on this topic, I recommend checking out Amy Cuddy’s TedTalk below…well worth the few minutes to watch it.
