Your Posture Controls The State Of Your Mind
Show Notes

Let’s try a quick exercise - sit or stand now like you have just received the best news of your life! 

Did you just move or change position? If so, notice how you now feel more focused and energised. 

This is because Posture affects feelings. Our mood and emotions are physically stored in our body, and the way we stand, sit, or move can directly influence how we’re feeling.

When you sit or stand straight, your posture  facilitates yours breathing and improves distribution of oxygen to your brain as well as the efficiency of blood flow from the brain to the rest of your body.

If you tend to slouch or hunch over when you’re feeling down, this will not only affect your decision making, but also your breathing process, and it can lead to you feeling tired and fatigued. 

If you stand tall and confident when facing a challenge, it can boost your confidence and put you in control of the situation. 

So always remember to make the best decisions, you need to manage the state you are in so stand tall, and if you’re finding that difficult, resort to exercises to improve your posture or consult with your osteopath or chiropractor, who I am sure will be more than happy to help!
