Feel Great With…
What we do with our bodies has a big impact on how we feel.
Sometimes we don’t feel very confident and our bodies tend to demonstrate this – perhaps we are hunched over a bit, looking down, or fidgeting.
This in turn can make us feel even less confident and it can become a never-ending cycle.
Taking control of what we do with our bodies is a quick and easy way to make ourselves feel more confident whenever we need to.
The superhero power pose is fun to do and is a very effective confidence booster.
HERE’S HOW TO DO IT…
STAND with your feet hip-distance apart with your feet firmly on the ground:
- This will give you the STRENGTH you need!
IMAGINE you have a string coming from the top of your head pulling you up really tall:
- This will stop you from hunching over and makes you feel more POSITIVE about yourself!
PUSH your shoulders back to make your chest wide and strong:
- This will help your breathing and makes you feel more expansive and in CONTROL.
PLACE your hands on your hips like a superhero:
- This will stop you fidgeting! You’ll feel more CENTRED & PURPOSEFUL!
BREATHE slowly and deeply:
- This will CALM you down…
- This will help you feel HAPPIER and more CONFIDENT!
All of these actions send powerful messages to our brain that we are relaxed and confident. To increase these feelings even more, try striking a superhero power pose in front of the mirror so you can not only feel confident, but you can see yourself feeling confident!
