Wanna Feel More Confident Instantly? Try This Trick

Confidence can’t be built up overnight, but there is one thing that can make you look and feel more confident almost immediately: stand up straight.

Yep, that’s really it!

It took me awhile to learn to stand tall again, because it was such a bad habit by then, but it really makes a difference; both how you look on the outside and how you feel on the inside.

If you think this is just something so small that it can’t really make a difference, check this out: there are actual studies that were done where they found out that posture is good for your energy and mood. Likewise, in another university study, it showed that a confident, upright posture made the students feel more confident in what they thought about themselves (source and source).

“Most of us were taught that sitting up straight gives a good impression to other people, but it turns out that our posture can also affect how we think about ourselves…

… People assume confidence is coming from their own thoughts. They don’t realize their posture is affecting how much they believe in what they’re thinking.” – Erik Peper, a behavioural scientist in one of the studies mentioned above.

Try it for yourself:

The next time you enter a room, about to meet someone, about to go into a situation where you might feel a bit nervous, just pull your shoulders back, hold your head up high and stand up straight.

Just like how smiling makes you feel happier immediately; standing up straight can make you feel much more confident just as fast. So stand up tall, beautiful!
