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.

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!
