The Power of Your Posture

Did you know that you can change your hormonal state of power with proper posture?

An interesting research study was done at Harvard University regarding Power Postures. When the body is in an open power pose the person not only looks more confident, but they actually are more confident.

The research shows that holding a power pose for just 2 minutes at a time increases the levels of testosterone that the body produces, and decreases levels of cortisol. High testosterone levels are associated with power and dominance, whereas low cortisol levels are associated with decreased stress.

You can literally change their physiology to be more powerful with proper posture. According to Carney et al. (2010), power postures “cause neuroendocrine and behavioral changes [including] elevations in testosterone, decreases in cortisol, and increased feelings of power and tolerance for risk.”
