How Your Posture Is Affecting Your Feelings & Thoughts

Did you know that research is showing that how you move your muscles and where you place your limbs, head and torso all help control your mood, your behavior, and even the way you think?

For example, leaning in makes you feel more interested in whatever you are doing. Standing tall sparks feelings of confidence and security, while slouching makes you feel stressed and unsure of yourself.

So…what does all of this mean? It means that having strong and flexible muscles is not only important to your body, but is also important for your mind.

If you’ve been waiting for the “perfect time” to start exercising, you’ll likely always wait. Now is the time to make it happen, because you can!
