YOUR DAILY HEALTH
News and advice
We dedicate time and energy to cultivating
the feeling of confidence so we can tap into it
when we need it most: at work, in business
meetings, on dates, during tough conversations.
If you re feeling less-than-stellar, these simple,
actionable tips will help you fake it till you make
For starters, stand tall
Tall, correct posture is the hallmark outer sign
of confidence---and research shows standing up
straight will help you feel it on the inside, too.
A study published in the journal Psychological
Science showed that a tall, expansive posture
helps you act and feel more powerful than more
Dig out that old rap album
Getting ready to request a raise or ask someone
out on a date? Just press "play."
Researchers from the Kellogg School of Man-

listening to bass-heavy tunes may have the
power to make you feel more confident.
Recall a time you were powerful
Making everyone laugh in your best man
speech, nailing that job interview, publishing a
well-written piece---whatever it is, those small
moments of confidence can make an impact
when you re not feeling your best.

Often we think of Hollywood stars like George
Clooney, Lupita Nyong o and Jennifer Lawrence
as people who make us feel inadequate (That
hair! Those eyes! That smile!), but this exercise
can actually help do the opposite.
A study published in the journal Personal
Relationships found that when people with wan-
ing self-esteem wrote down positive qualities
they see in their favourite same-sex celebrities
and themselves, they felt much more compelled
to become their best self.
Besides, it takes a special (and awesome) kind
of person to have J Law s sense of humour or
George Clooney s collected demeanour.
A boost of confidence
Stretch those muscles
Sometimes all it takes is a good, lengthening
stretch to feel like your happiest self.
Stretching your muscles can lead to good pos-
ture, better blood flow and ultimately more con-

Brush up on your Spanish
Learning a new language or sharpening other
skills can boost your life satisfaction in a similar
way to a pay raise, according to a study published
