    Take a Pose!

    This is completely unrelated to quilting, but I had to share. I am in Toastmasters, primarily because I gave a speech once where I thought the earth should swallow me up because I was so nervous and stood there was bad! So I joined Toastmasters.

    I was researching for a speech and found this great video on YouTube about Amy Cuddy. There is scientific evidence that taking the power pose will actually increase your testosterone (power) and reduce your cortisol (stress).

    Amy Cuddy: Your body language shapes who you are - YouTube

    When I was done with my speech at our Toastmasters Club, they said it was the best speech I had given. I tested the theory and did the power pose before giving the speech.

    So strike your power pose when you need to go for an interview, etc. It works!
    Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.

    Thanks, Megan. I've shared this on my FB page, especially for my younger FB friends and relatives but also for anyone at any stage in their life.
