Sit up straight, shoulders back, chin up. According to the journal Health Psychology, that’s all it takes to boost your mood, reduce your fear, and increase your self-esteem! Because when we sit upright, our body’s autonomic nervous system – which controls automatic functions like blinking and breathing – kicks into gear. It releases energy and increases blood flow – and that’s what makes you feel more alert and confident. So check your posture the next time you’re stressed, grouchy, or bummed out. Sitting up straight can improve your mood and energy levels.
