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

    How To Make Decisions Like A Grown-Up

    Domi and I have now postponed a month-long trip for the two of us to Southeast Asia not once, not twice, but three times due to COVID and I know, it’s not a big deal, except for the fact that we happened to tie taking this trip to being the last big trip we’d take […]

    You Can Stop Explaining Yourself Now And Here’s Why

    As long as I’ve been alive I’ve required an explanation. How did you come to be? Why? How did it work? Was that hard for you? Did you ever want your family to be different? And don’t get me wrong, I don’t actually mind the questions, I just have realized that I am very used […]
