Need a quick confidence boost? An attitude change? Are you prepping for a hard task?
Try a power pose:
- Stand with your feet shoulder width apart
- puff your chest out
- chin up
- hands on hips…
- bad-ass facial expression
- Just like a superhero would stand.
Hold that pose for 2 mins.

Research shows standing in expansive poses increases feelings of power and confidence…
Which leads to more optimism, creativity, authenticity, likability, and kicking ass in stressful situations! (Amy Cuddy explains more here)
Stand tall. Stand proud. You are the superhero of your own life. Act like it 🙂
