My workmates and I have taken to watching TED Talks on Thursdays during lunch. I've decided to start sharing some personal TED favorites on here so you can partake as well! I love TED because they keep it short, keep it interesting and keep it fresh. I always feel a little more educated and ready to strike up intelligent conversations after watching one.
Today's pick: Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are
Give it a watch! The premise is that by purposely altering your body language, you can affect your mental state. I've recently been using the power stance technique in everything from performing a song in church to motivating my team to play more confidently in a charity kickball game last weekend. Can I just tell you I performed that song without a trace of nerves? Totally mental, but totally works. (Even if we ended up losing at kickball, in the end. It was still fun to power stance in the dugout.)
Any favorite TED suggestions?
Thoughts on this one or body language in general?
