Rainy Day Blue

Look what Cinderita sent me today!! I laughed my butt off!!!  :


Power Posing Lowers Stress, Boosts Confidence
A Harvard Business study suggests that striking a "power pose" (think superhero stance or perhaps Madonna's Vogue video?) lowers the stress hormone cortisol by an average of 25% and boosts testosterone in both sexes by about 17%! So the next time your tank is running low or you're a little stressed out, don your cape and strike that classic Superman/Wonder Woman pose, or lean forward over your desk with your hands slightly apart or put your feet on your desk and clasp your hands behind your back. And heck, if striking a pose doesn't help lower your stress, at least you'll look darn good trying.  ( I don't have the source for this...)

And I'd say my fashion shoot for the day pretty much sums it all up.  Rain. Nuff said!!

  9. I love that quote about the power poses! I will have to do a few more of those!
    I also love this sweater on you! When you revamp your wardrobe you should consider more of this colour because it looks amazing with your eyes and skin.

  10. Ok, I think we're on to something here. We should do a Power Pose Wednesday or something some time. Imagine the confusion/delight in the community when x amount of bloggers strike The Power Pose!

    Love seeing you in that blue, btw. Purty:)

  14. I'm with you on the rain. We have driving rain due to it being very windy. No idea how I am going to get the photos done today. Might need to nail the tripod down.

    But it will all be OK because I will be striking a power pose. :-)
