How does your body language affect your health?!

How much does body language count for your health? A lot in fact.

Not only does it affect how others see us, it also changes how we see ourselves! Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how “power posing” — standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident — can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.

New research suggests that it doesn’t need to be this specific pose only – anything that opens your body up in an empowering way will do the trick: stretching your arms up in the air as tall as you can and practicing yoga and Warrior 2 are great options!

Is your body position positively affecting your body chemistry right now?
