Study shows your posture affects Cortisol and Testosterone levels

According to a study in the Journal Psychological Science, people were placed into High Power or Low Power postures for 1 minute and then had their saliva tested for testosterone (the male/aggression hormone) and cortisol (the stress hormone).

They found SIGNIFICANT hormonal changes with posture changes. In fact, a reporter for Time magazine was tested in the “Feet-on-the-desk” and “the Hawk” power poses, and reported his “testosterone levels doubled in the short amount of time I spent in the power positions.”

Power postures affects emotions as much as emotions affect posture.
