Happiness Hack #67 – To Be Happier, Sit Up Straight

happiness_straight #67


Your posture can impact how you think and feel about yourself.  It even has impacts on your hormone levels associated with resisting disease and your ability to lead. Sitting up straight has been shown to increase your number of positive thoughts and memories, reduce stress, and improve your mood. Standing up straight with your shoulders wide increases your confidence, ability to lead and make tough decisions, and overall can help you be more successful.

How you carry yourself matters. Not surprisingly, skipping through the halls with your head straight and facing forward will increase your energy levels while a slow shuffle with your head down will decrease them.


So sit up straight, stand tall and confident, skip or move energetically when you can, and take a few minutes to stretch when you can’t.  Don’t forget to smile. These actions will help you be more confident, lower your stress, bring on more positive thoughts and memories, give you more energy, and most importantly help you be happier.

My Passion is helping people become successful and happy. I have found that many people want to be successful but just don’t know how. More importantly, people want to be successful because they feel that reaching some success pinnacle will result in them becoming happy. The research and my experience has shown that just the opposite is the case. Success does not lead to happiness. Happiness leads to success.
