Power Posture: What your body is saying about YOU.

improvepostureFAT and OLD…

I make a point to stress the importance of posture.  Having good posture will help you decrease your pain, reduce the risk of injury, increase your energy and help your body age with a little more grace.  I also like to point out that poor posture makes you look FAT and OLD…so if all those other things don’t seem to blow your skirt up…maybe the thought of looking FAT and OLD will scare you into changing your posture.

Power Posture…

Well it turns out, that’s not all there is to posture.  Amy Cuddy, a professor at Harvard Business School, did a fascinating “TED Talk” that explains how your posture/body language shapes who you are.  The video is below.  It is about 20 minutes, but I promise you, it is worth watching.  Excellent stuff and I wanted to share.  Enjoy!
