Let me share something personal.

One of my favourite shows is Suits.

I just love all the witty back and forth, the intense personal and courtroom drama, and well…I’ve got two words for you…Harvey Specter.

I admit: I’m a fan.

As a chiropractor, one of the things I appreciate about Gabriel Macht (the actor who plays Harvey) is how well he portrays the character’s posture and body language.

If you haven’t seen the show, Harvey is a high-powered corporate attorney, known as “New York’s best closer”.  And from the moment he enters a scene, you don’t have a shred of doubt that he believes he’s the best.

How he stands…

How he moves…

How he talks…

All scream “high-status”.

But there’s a lesson here that you might not have considered.

It’s this:

While his posture is a result of his confidence, it also feeds his confidence.

Author Jerry Sternin once said: “It’s easier to act your way into a new way of thinking than it is to think your way into a new way of acting.”  Often, great posture and easy movement can put you in a better, more joyous, more productive, and yes, CONFIDENT mood…all on its own.

From a physiological standpoint, better posture helps hormonal health, sleep, organ function, and nerve signaling, all of which compounds into a “virtuous cycle” of more and more health, wellbeing and happiness.

That’s why it’s not at all uncommon for patients to report they feel like they’ve got a newfound “edge” since starting with regular adjustments.

Back to Suits for a second.

Louis talks to a psychiatrist.

Maybe Harvey secretly sees a chiropractor. ;-)

Remember, whatever you’re doing today, shoulders back, stand tall…and SMILE.

You got this!

Sincerely In Health,

Dr. Josh
