Adopt a power posture and change brain chemistry and probability of success

Less than two minutes of body movement can increase or decrease energy level depending on which movement the person performs (Peper and Lin).  Static  posture has an even larger social impact—it affects how others see us and how we perform. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy, professor and researcher from Harvard Business School, has demonstrated that by adopting a posture of confidence for two minutes—even when you just fake it—significantly improves yourchances for success and your brain chemistry. The power position significantly increases testosterone and decreases cortisol levels in our brain.
