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.
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!
