WHAT IS YOUR BODY SAYING?
Send a powerful message to your body with the right posture and reap the health benefits
When you’re faced with a difficult situation make the effort to sit upright, rather than slouching, and your brain will cope better with the pressure. Sitting up straight instantly boosts self-esteem and mood, and reduces self-focus – all three of which make you more resilient to stress.
A Better Pain Threshold
Expansive and confident postures – think head held high and shoulders back – encourage the production of testosterone, which can make pain more bearable.
Walking with a spring in your step and an upright, open chest activates the same biological pathways that exercise works on to increase happiness. You’ll feel like you’ve got more energy to burn, as a result.
