What Warrior II and Wonder Woman Have in Common

You know it to be true: movement impacts the way you feel. Whether you go on a great ride or take a sweet yoga class, your emotional status is altered from frazzled to refreshed in what seems like the blink of an eye.

Now here’s why: the place in our brain that controls our emotions, the amygdala, is closely related to the place in our brain that controls motion, our cerebellum. Motion and eMotion. Spelling coincidence? Probably not.

So what do Warrior II & Wonder Woman have in common? These poses are strong, expansive, confident power poses. And, by doing them, they literally reduce cortisol (the stress hormone) and increase testosterone (let’s call it the “confidence” hormone). In other word, changing your posture has been proven to change your mood.

Watch this TED Talk over your cup of coffee and discover how your body language shapes who you are and how 2 minutes is all it takes to become the person you want to be. Don’t fake it 'till you make it. Fake it ‘till you become it.

Power up and have a great Sunday.
