Are you looking for a way to feel better quickly and easily?
Feeling good is psychological mainly because the things you are thinking about directly impact how you feel.
But let’s not forget that physiology plays a big part as well.
Have you ever heard the phrase, “Chin Up”?
For a moment, let’s not take this metaphorically but literally.
Take a deep breath.
Sit or stand tall.
Put your shoulders back.
Put your Chin Up.
And just for a moment, try not to feel happy, or confident.
Because chances are, you cannot.
Sitting up tall with your chin in the air can trick your brain into feeling good because it mimics the physical posture of confidence and power; this can activate the release of endorphins, chemicals in the brain that can create feelings of happiness and well-being. Additionally, good posture can help to improve breathing, which in turn can have a positive impact on mental health.
Some other benefits of doing this include the following:
Good posture can help to open up the chest and lungs, allowing for deeper, more efficient breathing. This can help to reduce stress and anxiety.
Standing tall with good posture can make you feel more confident and self-assured.
Better Focus and Concentration
Good posture can help improve blood flow to the brain, enhancing cognitive function and centration.
Sitting or standing with good posture can help to reduce strain on the muscles and joints, leading to less fatigue and more energy.
Good posture can help to release endorphins, the feel-good chemicals in the brain, which can help to improve mood and reduce feelings of depression or anxiety.
This exercise is an excellent way to gain more confidence and control over how you feel by moving your body.
You can do this anywhere, anytime, and when you need a pick-me-up, all you have to remember is, “Chin Up” and see the difference in how you feel, fast!
