A dozen years ago, I accidentally shaved my head.
(I know… how does someone ACCIDENTALLY shave their head?)
I was in a rush to get somewhere and needed to give myself a quick hair cut to look presentable. Without thinking, I made the first long swipe up the right side of my head before I realized that I had forgotten to put the guard on the clippers.
Standing there ,with a shocked look on my face, I realized there was nothing to be done. Because of the placement of the newly mown swath on the side of my head, there was no way I could hide it or recover. So I went all in and shaved off the rest of my hair.
And a weird thing happened.
The next day when I went to work I walked out of the house 2 inches taller. I felt stronger. I felt like a bad ass.
And I was shocked.
Could a haircut really change my self-perception that much? Apparently so.
Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are
Today I found out that research proves that if we change the outside, we can change the inside.
Enjoy this 20 minute video and ask yourself, “As a therapist, what is my posture doing to help both myself and my client feel stronger?”
I'd love to hear from you, so leave a comment or connect on any of the various social media platforms.
