Body Language As A Roadmap

February 9, 2021

We are so often told to lean in. To lean in to fear, to love, to change. But I have found that sometimes leaning in doesn’t serve me, but stresses me. Our bodies and our body language signals so much to other people about what headspace we’re in and oftentimes the subtext of our words without us even knowing. However, we seem to read other peoples’ body language without taking a second look at our own. 

Today, is all about reverse engineering our body language—about moving our bodies as a method of shifting our mental state.

There’s more than one way to do this, but here’s my first tip to get you started. 

Even if you aren’t paying attention to your body language constantly (it’s impossible to do anything constantly) let this be a little reminder to check in with your body throughout the day whenever you do remember. 

I love you. XOXO, CAMDW

    My Value Is Not My Accomplishments

    “Hey, can you talk later this afternoon?” A friend of mine texted me a few mornings ago. I started typing and kept deleting my answer to a seemingly innocuous question. I really wanted to talk to her, but a part of me felt super guilty that I would be taking time out of my day […]

    Permission and Partnerships

    As we grow and navigate the world, more often than not we will encounter times of working with other people and having to make a decision that will work the best for us long term.  Instead of looking at it as hiring someone or firing someone, look at these opportunities to work with people as […]
