Fun & Free February 2013

Pose your way to better outcomes.

Have you ever heard the phrase “fake it ‘til you make it?”  Our mind can’t tell the difference between what is real and what is vividly imagined.  Amy Cuddy and her group of researchers have found that our body can do the same thing.  Try this – choose one of the power poses in the picture and hold it for 2 minutes.  The science has shown that these body positions can elevate our testosterone and decrease our cortisol.  We send a message of confidence with our stance that other people can feel and respond to.  AND we also change our own body chemistry.  You can practice the poses yourself and notice what happens to you and around you.  I’ve also included Amy Cuddy’s TED talk if you’d like to hear the juicy details.  Enjoy and here’s to getting that job, making a great speech, or nailing the sale 🙂
