Calm Your Nerves #12 – Step Lively

step livelyHow you’re feeling is evident in how you move.

If you feel down, chances are you’ll find yourself dragging about, every step an effort. Feel happy and your step takes on a bit of a bounce.

But mood isn’t all powerful. The opposite is also true. Change how you move and your mood will shift to match.

Give it a try:

Next time you’re feeling anxious, down, or worried, take a moment to notice how you are moving.

Are your feet dragging along?
Does your body feel heavy?
Are your movements labored and full of effort?

Once you know what you’re doing, get up and get going. Set a lively pace. The power to change your mood is in your footsteps.

For an extra boost walk outside in nature.
Add a shot of “happy” by walking with a friend.
