It is no secret that our body speaks a language, one that is usually stronger than spoken words.

You can strengthen your self-confidence with targeted postures and movements until confidence becomes a habit!
A simple example
If you consciously smile, you become happier and your attitude more positive!
Your brain responds to the impulses that the muscles around your mouth cause and connects the smile with the associated emotion!
This is because your brain is already used to expressing good emotions automatically with a real smile.
Important: the smile has to be real. A real smile can be seen in the eyes and wrinkles around the eyes. So, you can also tell if a person’s smile is real or just polite.
