The mysteries of body language and presence with Amy Cuddy

Everyday, we are more aware of the connection between the mind and the body. I am actually reading a book which illustrates perfectly this marvellous connection and what we can learn about it. I am learning that our gestures, our posture are a direct impact on our emotions and our feelings. And it is truly a revelation, to realise that your posture may inhibit or encourage yourself to participate more in classes, meetings, stand for yourself or speak in front of thousands of people.

I heard previously the term body language and I wondered for a long time what is really the meaning behind it. Is it exact that our body speak a language that everyone can understand without us being aware ? Yes and no. Yes, because even unconsciously our body convey our real feelings, emotions faced to various circumstances. No, because with ongoing learning, each of us can identify and modify our posture to fit with our intentions. Where it could seem complicated aft first to modify our body language, it is in reality feasible for all of us to do so. With the Ted Talk of Amy Cuddy, we can learn that some postures like Wonderwoman pose can empower ourselves, give us access to our personal power and be able to be our true self in challenging situations.

Deep down, I wanted to understand more, more about this beautiful language between mind and body, how this connection is starting, the details, and the impact of it. It is one of the reasons I am reading the book from Amy Cuddy “Presence” because I am passionated to know more about the intricacies of our mind, body and how ultimately to harness our personal power. To empower ourselves and being present in each situation and being our authentic self.

I am taking a lot of notes as well as highlighting paragraphs, sentences because this book is packed with insightful information about studies, discoveries and meaningful messages for my learning. I will definitely make a review of this book when I will finish it. Have a good evening !

Just a drink and everything is falling into place

I never felt so good, it’s not due to my workout, it’s just because I am working from home today, feeling a bit down and feeling sick and despite this difficult start, I am feeling much more better because I am taking my time to enjoy my chai latte and it’s truly blissful.

Just a few moments to pause, being in the moment and appreciate the taste, the warmth if my beverage instantly calm me down and awake my mind, my senses. Just a drink and everything is falling into place.

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 5 – Dead Men Tell No Tales

Sounds promising, entertaining and once again an adventurous tale/story with the famous pirate Jack Sparrow. Look like much better than the last one and much more funny, captivating and truly a must see movie for the coming months. Oh, the addition of Javier Bardem is truly awesome, love this actor. And Orlando Bloom will be part of this upcoming sequel as well as  possibly Keira Knightley.
