Take Space – Make Yourself Big!

posted in: Interesting articles | 0

A friend sent me this video. Initially, I thought it was because Wonder Woman features prominently in the video clip’s still frame. After all, I made an awesome Wonder Woman costume for myself several years ago; plus she extracts truth with a lasso – how cool is that?

The video is so much more than that. In fact, it’s about a Harvard Research study that shows that when we expand ourselves the physical space we occupy that we interact more confidently and enthusiastically with people we encounter. This even works when we practice all alone! By presenting ourselves in a big way, it literally changes our chemical make-up.
