This month I have been pulling back the curtain on Confidence and examining how to build it, get more, and make it irrelevant. Today, in the final “confidence” installment (for now), I’m going deeper and having a look at the connection between stress and confidence and what we can do to make our bodies more receptive to feeling confident.
It’s a hot topic in our always-connected world. But what if not getting a handle on your stress levels is also making it nearly impossible for you to feel confident?
And is there a way to prime our bodies to be more receptive to our confidence-boosting efforts?
These are the questions that inspired this week’s video. I also offer a little look at the stress hormone cortisol and offer a few ways to lower stress in your life. (Plus Wonder Woman and Science Nerd costumes).
