I initially shared Power Posing and the amazing work of Amy Cuddy on my blog last year, and her work continues to astound me. Cuddy’s research shows that standing or sitting in a certain way raises the level of the power hormone—testosterone—and lowers levels of cortisol, the stress hormone.
Power posing is all about “opening up”–expanding and stretching your body to take up as much room as possible, instead of folding up in a low power way. Her science now reveals that becoming more powerful begins during the night, with the way you sleep!
I am sharing this most recent article from Business Insider and Entrepreneur, and urge you to take a look. You too will be amazed—and more powerful!
