How to Grow in Confidence – The Power Pose

Wonder_WomanAs a natural introvert, I have always had to work hard at showing confidence in my interactions with other people.

The good news is that feeling and showing confidence is a skill that can be learned and improved upon. By using some simple exercises and developing some positive habits, you, too, can grow in confidence.

One of the easiest ways to help yourself to more confidence is by improving your posture.

Amy Cuddy’s TED Talk, a fascinating 21 minute video, describes how recent research has shown that standing tall in a “power pose” like Wonder Woman or Superman for just two minutes can actually measurably change your body chemistry.

This stance will increase your levels of testosterone, the hormone for strength and dominance, and decrease your levels of cortisol, the stress hormone that produces insulin resistance and causes you to put on belly fat.

When I watched this video, I was amazed, and I determined to put the Wonder Woman pose into practice.

It might sound crazy, but I have developed the habit of taking a few minutes daily to work on improving my hormones.

I have no way of measuring my levels of testosterone or cortisol, but I do know that I get a lift from standing like Wonder Woman. Try it! And feel your confidence grow!

One of the easiest ways to help yourself to more confidence is by improving your posture.
