You've probably heard that your thoughts can effect your life, and can even change yor life.
Well what if your body and they way it moves and behaves could also change your life?
What if a timid person stood tall with head held high, would they actually begin to feel that way?
I've just listened to an amazing talk by Amy Cuddy on TED. She's completed some research on this topic and has found some astounding results. That just two minutes of power poses each day can profoundly effect the way we think and feel and also how people react to us.
She tested people before an interview. Some did power poses and others sat in hunched up positions. The inteviewers wanted to hire all the power posers!
To listen to the full twenty minute talk click on the link below;
This information could REALLY change your life for the better and how you think and behave.
There are some interesting comments under the video as well about how holding yoga asana poses is also linked to this idea of empowerment by using your body.
Thanks to Flo at NLP International for the information. If you are interested in NLP you can find them on meetups.com
