The mind reflects your body by responding to its levels of tension, rate of breath, speed of movement and mental focus.
Likewise your body mirrors your thoughts, feelings, mood, and responds to your state of mind, the questions you ask and the words you speak.
So if the mind and body are intrinsically connected – meaning that one has a direct affect on the other – it becomes clear that if we directly and consciously take control of one, it will influence and transform the other.
So by mindfully adjusting how you use your body you can directly influence your state of mind, and dramatically transform your attitude.
Just imagine you’re sitting there in a bad mood, shoulders hanging forward, shallow breathing and frowning.
Go ahead and do this right now to experience how it influences your state of mind.
And then do the opposite: stand up straight and put a big smile on your face. Take some deep, strong breaths and stretch your arms into the air.
Notice how you feel better?
Bottom line: Take the vehicle your creator has given you and use it!
Your body is the best tool for changing your attitude in an instant.
