Sometimes it’s the tiny simple things in life that make a small difference. Small differences can add up to eventually make quite big differences. One of the things I am experimenting with right now is paying more attention to my posture. It’s one of these things we know but rarely apply. Yet the more we ignore what we know the more we train ourselves to be helpless. If you need a little big of inspiration why it makes sense to pay attention to your posture check out this TED talk by Amy Cuddy.
Our body influences everything yet we usually only pay attention to it when it is hurting or not functioning well. Take a moment to scan your body. Take a moment to thank your body parts: how your feet are carrying you everywhere you need to go, how your lungs work without your conscious control and how soft the skin is between your upper and lower arm. If something is hurting put your hand on it and feel what happens. Can you take a bath or get a massage? If that’s not possible just stand upright and breathe in and out deeply for ten breaths.
