Brain Chemistry and an Intensified You!
Stanford professor Jeffrey Pfeffer reports in a recent Wall Street Journal article that adopting a powerful, expansive body pose actually changes people’s blood chemistry.
The “Intensified You” posture reduces cortisal (a stress hormone) and increases testosterone.
Want to feel more stressed and less assertive? Just assume a “hunched, restrictive, low-power posture.”
Remember: OPEN your chest. ROLL your shoulders down and back. OPEN your arms to your audience. You’ll appear (and feel) much more confident!
