If You Are Determined To Learn - No One Can Stop You
Alright...Lets Move on a little further...Let's Learn something New Today...Let Us Grow Together.
A few days ago...We discovered a few clues that peaked interest so let us start there. If you recall we were looking into Facial Feedback Hypothesis (seeing how we could tie it back to Emotions) which basically told us that if we Smile we tend to enjoy the situation more...If we Frown...We tend to have a Less positive result...Basically we release Hormones based on our Facial Expressions...Of course as we are Learning...The Positive Facial Expressions Lead to Positive Hormones with a Positive Domino Effect...While (as we would naturally expect and deduct) the Negative Facial Expressions Lead to Negative Hormones with a Negative Domino Effect. This makes sense. If you want to Learn more visit recent past Blogs.
This information lead us into two other New Clues that we will explore today to see how Emotions connect with them...Body Posture Hypothesis and Self-Perception Hypothesis. We will Learn Together and see if we can add these to our Ever Growing List of Discoveries that Illuminate Very Precisely How Integral our Emotions are to our Entire Well-Being . Let's Go!
Body Posture Hypothesis -
Well...I've been Looking...I have not Found what I am looking for yet...I am going to continue my search...But...I did find this little gem that adds to the Conversation of Body Posture - Confidence- Hormones - Reality.
Basically it says when you take on a Power pose for 2 minutes (Think of Someone Powerful How they take up space in a room.) Hold that Pose and Feel powerful for 2 minutes and Change Your Body Chemistry...So While this does not Specifically Say Body Posture Hypothesis...I Do believe it would Fall under this regard. So Indeed...Body Posture (as suspected) Does have an Immediate Impact on your hormones...Which again are the Key to Everything. We either release Positive Hormones with Positive Results from Positive Emotions...Or...We have Negative Hormones with Negative Results from Negative Feelings which come from Small Body Posture. This makse sense...Right?
