Have you seen this brilliant TED talk with Amy Cuddy, on how we can change our minds by changing our posture?
She talks about increasing testosterone and reducing cortisol by how we arrange our bodies.
Testosterone is about confidence -- not just "maleness".
We know that excess cortisol is associated with excess weight . . Amy Cuddy doesn't make that connection but she herself is pretty lean, right??
Two minutes a day, not reciting "Every day in every way I am getting better" but just standing in a confidence posture.
Worth a try, right? So many potential benefits!!
Next time I wanna eat something that I shouldn't, I'm gonna try 2 minutes of victory pose! Or 2 minutes of hands on hips!
We'll see how it works.
