What Does Your Posture Say About You?

Your posture sends a message.

Standing tall with shoulders back generates positive energy that supports wellness and allows you to open your heart to others. On the other hand, closed postures–slouching, sagging, leaning away, self-wrapping, head hanging, tense hands, tense jaw and turning away–carry negative energy.

Notice your postures throughout the day. When you notice you are folded up, crumpled and slouched, gently open back up.

This is the natural process that allows you to form new postures and more positive presence.
