Do this to boost your confidence immediately

How can you boost your confidence in 1 minute?

So even though confidence is a mindset, and it is really our internal struggle that stops us from confident, I find that being physically confident helps convert what's in our mind. Much like how when we think an embarrassing thought we get a physical reaction (a blush), I believe that being physically confident can change your mindset.

One of the things that I like to do to help boost my confidence straight away is power poses.

These are simple, so simple that even children do it!

  • Stand up straight - your shoulders are back, your chest is out. Your body is in line with your head. Your neck is long and straight.

  • Your legs are slightly apart, not together.

  • Your chin is tilted up slightly so that you can make eye contact when talking to people. Your gaze is upwards not skywards.

  • Put your hands on your hips like superwoman does!

There you go - the superwoman pose!

I always get a boost of confidence immediately when I do this pose. If you want to know more about power poses, including more poses, watch this TED talk by Amy Cuddy (https://www.ted.com/talks/amy_cuddy_your_body_language_shapes_who_you_are?language=en).

Have fun trying these out!
