Postures and Our Mood
Stop whatever you're doing for 5 minutes. Sit or stand with your hip directly under your shoulders, widen your collarbones, align your ears over your shoulders and plant both feet flat on the ground. Now, take 5 deep breaths. Inhale on a count of 5 and exhale on a count of 5.
How do you feel? A little lighter? A litter calmer? A little more grounded? We have so much power to make ourselves feel good. Our bodies are constantly sending messages to our brains about how we feel. If we hold ourselves in a way that is good for our bodies, it is also good for our brain and our mood.
If you have extra time watch this video :) I am currently reading Amy Cuddy's book "Presence: Bringing your boldest self to your biggest challenges". I highly recommend it!
