How the 'Power Pose' can help make you more confident!
Want to feel more confident? Feeling a bit stressed? Well the power pose might be the answer!
Wonder Woman and Beyoncé are some people who have mastered this pose! But this special pose is not just for a select few! There is actually a strong movement, grounded in solid research from Harvard University and the Universities of Oregon and Texas, that supports the many benefits of such a pose, particularly on our confidence and stress levels.
One of the leaders in this space is social psychologist Amy Cuddy. In one of the most popular TED-talks (see link below), she shows how “power posing” – standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident – can affect certain hormone levels in the brain; specifically testosterone and cortisol.
