The hour before a challenging situation at my day job, a friend texted me: go stand in a Wonder Woman pose for two minutes. I had no idea why she was suggesting it, but she’s generally pretty brilliant about navigating emotions and self care, so I went to the bathroom, closed the door, and did what she said.
Later, she asked if I knew what she was referring to when she recommended that. I said I thought it was just because we like Wonder Woman?
Turns out it’s more advanced than that, and that there’s some fascinating science behind it. Check out this talk by Amy Cuddy and get ready to rewire your brain and strike a pose.
