When you think about a superhero getting ready for confrontation, what comes to your mind? I bet it’s those blazing eyes, legs wide apart, hands on the hips, chest thrust forward getting ready to annihilate the opposition with a cock of their eyebrows or a mere flick of the wrist.
Have you ever thought about why? Why out of all poses they could strike, they choose this one? It turns out there is an actual scientific reason for this pose. It is what the psychologists refer to as an open pose. So apparently, when you stand in with your arms on hips and elbows bent, it releases testosterone into your body, which helps you feed more competitive, confident and gets you on a high simultaneously reducing cortisol the stress-inducing hormones.
Researchers claim that striking the pose can actually change the brain chemistry elevating the confidence i.e.if you pose like a super-hero, you’ll think like a super-hero and act like one.
So next time you are ruled by fear? Strike a superhero pose and chances are you’ll be officially on your path to be one:-)
