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

    Let’s reduce our stress NOW!

    Happy April, friends! I hope so far April has been very good to you.  I am very big on talking about self-care and reducing our stress levels, but honestly, I’ve been kind of crappy at taking my own advice. I really don’t like being a hypocrite, so I decided enough is enough of my own […]
