Small habits… BIG difference to your day
FIRST THING MEDITATE A calm brain is the ultimate confidence tool. Meditation can rewire your brain. Your fear centre can literally shrink, and you increase your ability to control your emotions. AFTER LUNCH ADOPT A POWER POSITION Studies reveal that sitting up straight gives you a shortterm confidence boost. Also, try nodding. You’ll feel more confident as you talk when you do. BEFORE BED BE GRATEFUL Gratitude is key to an optimistic mind-set. Be thankful for tiny things – notice them instead of just forgetting all about them. It’ll help transform your mood. AND EVERY DAY SLEEP, MOVE, SHARE A lack of sleep and exercise leads to an extremely anxious brain. Meanwhile, being close to friends boosts oxytocin levels (one of our feel-happy chemicals), so make time to chat.
