Quick notice your posture right now. Are you slouching, hovering over your computer or phone while you read this email? Now did the fact that I called your attention to your posture make you sit up a little bit straighter? I bet it did!
The Science of Posture in Plain English
Your posture affects the how you think and feel in a big way. When you’re sitting, standing and walking, your posture is sending nonverbal cues to your brain. These cues, influence the way you think, feel and even act.
This body-brain connection is important to understand. Particularly for those of us who sit at our computer and check our phone all day. We spend most of our waking hours slouching over our keyboards and hunching over our phones. Poor posture is bad for our back, but it’s also bad for our mind.
Your brain is always scanning for cues from your body, informing what mental state you should be in at any given moment.
When you start to pay attention to your posture, magical things start to happen.
Your attitude changes, confidence increases, happiness gets a boost and (to my surprise and delight) your productivity improves. But we are often so preoccupied with what we’re doing, we rarely notice our posture at all.
I’ve been training my brain to sit up straight.
