Want to be 10% Happier? Strike a Super Hero Pose

Quote:Imagine you’re about to give a big presentation at work in front of your boss and a room full of your coworkers. You’re nervous, you haven’t slept well. Even if you know your material backwards and forwards, you’re concerned about how you’ll look to others and that you’ll make a fool of yourself.

But before you walk into that conference room, Harvard social psychologist Amy Cuddy suggests you try one thing to boost your confidence and melt away fear: Find a private place and strike a pose.

“It can be whatever feels comfortable to you,” Cuddy said. “It doesn't have to be anything other than expansive and open... but Wonder Woman, the Victory Pose, feet up on the desk with your hands behind your head, anything that is really expansive. And I encourage people to do it in the privacy of their own office, or a bathroom stall or a stairwell before they walk into these stressful situations so they’re not feeling like a tiger is about to attack them.”

When you’re feeling scared or nervous, Cuddy said we tend to feel “powerless” and we’ll want to put our heads down and crumple up into a ball. But Cuddy said research has shown that siting up straight, shoulders back, and even striking a strong pose for a few minutes, it can help lift us out of that feeling.

“When we feel powerful, we want to take up a lot of space in the world to signal we’re in charge, ‘we’ve got the power right now,’”

When you ARE a super hero you don't have to POSE as one.

Just sayin...

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

I imagine one could take it a step further, you know... wear your underwear on the outside of your leotards and throw on a cape.
That will at least make your presentation more interesting, if not fabulous, then go drinking.

I drink at home. The last time I "went" drinking I flew into a building. There's nothing worse than waking up to some granny trying to hump you except finding out that finger is grandpa.
