‘Power Poses’ are our body positions that can help us cope up with anxiety and stress in less than two minutes by lowering cortisol levels to a great extent.
Stand up, pull your shoulders back and plant your feet evenly and widely apart and open up your chest for immediate anxiety relief. Then breathe deeply. This posture, combined with deep breathing, helps your body remember that it’s not in danger right now, and that it is in control (not helpless). If you can’t stand up (i.e. you’re in your car), just pull your shoulders back and open up your chest. The most important thing is to stop hunching and breathe deeply.
