We all know the extent to which our brain controls our body.
But there is rapidly increasing scientific research now demonstrating that the reverse is also true. We can alter the biochemistry of our brain with our body movements and positions.
The simple fact of smiling alone sends a signal to our brain to begin producing and releasing the feel-good chemicals dopamine, endorphins and serotonin. Smiling also activates the release of stress-fighting neuropeptides.
Last breaking news in the matter is that standing in a position of power, for a few moments each day, increases our level of self-esteem, our confidence, and consequently our performance.
