The Power of a Pose – What Your Body Language Says About You

Written by: Nick Ortner

Power PoseDid you know that recent research has uncovered that your body language can help you become happier and more successful?

Even the good ol’, “sit up straight” advice has measurable impact on your feelings, actions, and even hormones in your body.

Want to know how to “pose”? Think expansive. Open chest, shoulders back, and down (comfortable, not unnatural). Raise your arms in the air, and hold it for a few seconds.

You can literally feel the power and energy!

The opposite are poses we often find ourselves doing without our conscious attention – hunched over and drawn-in, arms crossed, and slouching.

So today, take a few moments throughout the day to notice your body language, and think, “open” just a little bit more, and see what happens.

If you’re in the midst of doing some tapping or meditating, pay particular attention to your body language to accentuate the results and effects.
