I want to talk to you today about using the power of body language to change your mood 💪👸

Body language can not only influence our physical body and posture, but it can also influence how we are feeling. Research is increasingly finding that the body and mind are really a two-way street and using mirroring, or adopting the body language that someone might be exhibiting while in a certain mindset, will bring you into the same mindset!

Getting motivated right now can be hard on any normal day, let alone when you haven't really left the house, spent time with friends or family or even gone to work normally for over a year.

So, we want you to try something!

We want you to create your very own victory pose 🦹‍♀️🦸‍♀️

We are going to use epic geeky examples...Ever seen the victory poses in games like overwatch or mortal combat? Superhero poses from the avengers? Whatever takes your fancy, go and create your very own victory pose RIGHT NOW! It might even be an entire routine. Whatever you come up with, try out and we guarantee you will feel re-energised.

If you're interested in finding out more about the power of body language, you can watch the Ted talk below by social psychologist Amy Cuddy, who argues that "power posing" -- standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don't feel confident -- can boost feelings of confidence, and might have an impact on our chances for success.

As well as being a qualified NLP practitioner, Jess has a rich background in marketing and writing. Having written for other people throughout her career, she is definitely loving being able to finally write and create for herself. Her work mainly consists of researching and trying out everything and anything to do with personal development and helping guide others through this sometimes daunting and confusing space. Her downtime (when she isn't being an adrenaline junkie) usually consists of shinrin-yoku, reading a ludicrous amount of books, working on her many secret novels, harassing her cats, watching 80's & 90's movies and raging at her consoles. When she isn't a potato, she can sometimes be seen outdoors (normally hiking, galavanting on beaches or skulking in the woods).
