Greetings Gentle People
It seems everything about me personally is business these days. And business is almost my spiritual practice. I'm growing and finding my strengths and weaknesses. I have plenty to tap on to grow myself by letting go of old thoughts and beliefs that no longer serve me. And by extension my business either. And since I'm in the business of easing discomfort and increasing other's happiness - all the better for me because I have to walk that path first!
MODERN MALADIES AND MOOD
Thoughts create sensations in your body. And feelings create thoughts in your mind. The two always go together. Have you ever felt tension in your body, say your stomach, and then realized you were worried or upset? We often are more cued into how our body feels than the thoughts running around in our head. After all, the soundtrack that's playing in our minds is so constant we don't listen to it much. And when we do, it's not very uplifting. Very few of us have a cheering section in our heads crowing “you're the greatest, you're the best, everybody loves you and everything you do is golden, Hooray for You!”!
Posture is important for your physical well being, but there's another aspect to posture besides preventing physical pain and deformity by craning your head down to look at your phone. Your posture reflects your state of mind, and your state of mind reflects your posture.
Various states of mind are expressed naturally by how we position our bodies. Even blind people who have never seen these postures do them naturally. You've heard of the Wonder Woman Pose? It's clinically shown to change the hormones in your body to a more confident profile. We know confidence or depression when we see it in others. It's part of the basic communication we do with body language.
Depressed postures include hunching the shoulders forward, collapsing the chest, and hanging the head. Picture that. Now put a phone in the hand. Look familiar? Depression, anxiety, and the use of devices are suddenly epidemic. Coincidence? I think not. Lift that phone up to eye level, and smile. Put your arms up over your head and feel like a winner. Stand up straight, for peace of mind. Posture still matters.
