This method comes in handy before a date, an important conversation, or just to cheer you up. But the reason for self-doubt can lie deep inside a person’s mind.
Self-confidence gives a person a lot and significantly increases his chances of success. But not everyone can boast of confidence, and even those who have it, have moments when they feel helpless.
This simple and effective technique will help you feel more confident in minutes. It also helps relieve internal stress.
What is a winner’s gesture and how does it affect people?
Psychologists say that there are so-called winner gestures. These are the poses that make us visually larger, more authoritative in the eyes of others.
For example, a confident posture with hands by sides subconsciously tells the interlocutor that he is facing a strong, influential, and self-confident person with a high level of epinephrine, that suppresses feelings of stress and gives strength and confidence.
It has already been proven that even with a low level of this hormone, performing such exercises, you will feel a surge of energy, strength, and confidence in a couple of minutes.
How to become confident in 5 minutes?
- Stand with your feet slightly wider than your shoulders, and feel firm ground under you. Straighten up, slightly lift your chin and put your hands behind your head. A confident look ahead, just above the horizon.
- Breathe deeply and slowly. In this position, for 2 to 4 minutes, repeat the affirmation: “I am getting confidence.” The effect will not keep you waiting – you will feel the power coming.
Of course, at first, you may feel stupid and awkward, you will want to return to your usual position, but this is a matter of habit.
By doing this technique daily, you train yourself to independently, effectively, and quickly build your confidence.
But at the same time, experts explain that the reasons for low self-esteem and self-doubt lie deep in our subconscious. And sometimes it needs longer and more meaningful work, and perhaps even with a psychologist.
