Boost your confidence by adapting your body language

on Friday, 11 March 2016. Posted in Motivation, Front Page , Wellbeing

In this inspirational TED talk, Amy Cuddy shares a 2 minute 'life hack' to boost your confidence and change the entire course of your life.

It is incredibly simple and easy to do, here's how...


Towards the end Amy gets emotional talking about what it's like not to fit in and how she dealt with that feeling. It is breathtakingly beautiful to watch.

I love what she shares about "faking it until you become it".

Can you think of times that you've had to do that yourself?

I certianly can! I think we all feel out of our depth sometimes, but we can get there when we persevere and just give our best.

Please leave a comment below... I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Quick Tips

Eat more “real” food.

Focus first on getting more good stuff into your diet rather than having a deprivation mentality.

The more you tell yourself you can't eat something, the more you crave it and willpower is never a long-term solution.
