Stand or sit in a "power position"

Aside from sitting upright, Professor Cuddy recommends two additional positions which can stimulate the body’s hormones that will help you gain self-confidence in just a few moments. The first is the Wonder Woman stance where both hands are placed on the hips while you stand upright.. The second pose includes sitting with your legs on a table with both hands folded behind your head and your elbows pointing sideways. To feel the effects of these postures on your self-confidence, you may want to hold them for two whole minutes so that the hormones will start to increase in your body. You can use these poses before you do important and stressful things.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
