1. Upgrade Your General Postures to the Power Postures:
So what are the Power Postures?
You can consider them something like:
You probably know that our body hormones have immense effect on your moods.
And our postures control our body hormones to a great extend.
Therefore, it is a very easy to conclude equation that our postures have great impact on our mood.
The higher the level of Cortisol present in our blood, the more we feel ourselves stressed.
Similarly, the higher the level of Testosterone present in our blood, the more we feel confident about ourselves.
We everyday use multiple postures those either boost our moods or, negatively affect them.
To be able to deliver our best (without being tired) we must have retain ourselves in a Charming Mood as much as possible.
Power postures just help us with the same – they help us to be in highly energized moods.
- High Power Postures: Those are Open, Relaxed and More Spacious and
- Low Power Postures: Those are Closed, Tensed and Less Spacious.
While the High Power Postures help us to boost our moods, the Low Power Postures make us feel bad.

2. Give and Take Hugs (The Light of Power Body Hacks):
You read right.
Hug is the most common yet most effective inter-personal touch that involves the best of two friendly bodies.
And seriously, it can Do Magic.
Here, Oxytocin (also known as the “Cuddle Hormone“) plays the trick.
It generates a soothing feeling by lowering our emotional reactivity to “bad things” in our environment.
According to another psychologist Alex Corb, the Inter-Personal Touches (like Hug, Hand-Shake, Kiss, Gentle Taps on Soldier, etc) are the most effective ways to increase the Oxytocin Level in our blood.
Alex further argued that, apart from inter-personal touches, contact with soft and warm objects also have soothing and relaxing effect.
Feeling warm can boost oxytocin – or at least mimic its effects. So if you don’t get a hug, try wrapping yourself in a blanket and holding a mug of hot tea. Taking a warm shower can also help”

3. Smile Freely and Laugh Loudly:
In the Animal Kingdom, only the Human being is blessed with the Sense of Smiling.
Our facial muscles have a significant effect on our emotional levels and mood.
This was proved in a Social Experiment conducted by Fritz Strack and his Team in the year of 1988.
You can find the details of that experiment from the following video:
You will be surprised to see the result.
Smiling can change the way we face the difficult situations.
Sometimes when our brain gets tired with stresses and negative thoughts, we should try to focus on smile, no matter how difficult the situation is.
It makes the difficult situations better and easier.
