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!
