Fix Your Posture: How Often Do You Do This?
Where your eyes go, everything else will follow.
Your eyes should be guiding the world in front of you. Where are your eyes when you’re engaged in anything that is relevant to your posture?
That’s the 2nd underpinning of positive posture.
If they’re down, pick them up. This is especially helpful when you’re either walking, exercising or even simply standing.
I see this often in a session. Many times I’ll stand behind someone while coaching them through an exercise. I do this to get out of their vision and let them focus on themselves without my presence in front of them to distract.
I can tell if their eyes are down from behind them because their head is cocked down. Their attention follows suit. And it’s obvious from the back. In other words if your eyes are down everything else will follow.
That includes posture big time.
It’s okay to get an idea looking down to locate the space in front of you, but keeping your eyes down simply gives the okay for your brain and attention to focus downward. If you get good at focusing downward when you’re trying to do something positive and inspiring you’ll get good at focusing downward.
Not necessarily what you what to be getting good at.
Get the picture?
Pick your eyes up if you don’t need them looking down.
Your head will follow.
Now bit by bit adjust your body to get that whole feel of openness so that it can soak into your brain.
Practice that with your weekend activities and into your daily life next week.
