Have you ever heard the saying "posture dictates emotion and emotion dictates posture"? Consider that for a moment and picture how difficult it is to stand tall and proud when you are feeling upset and sad.

When you're reminded of the powerful connection between mind and body it becomes shockingly apparent how influential they are to each other. Improving the health of your physical being will improve your mental state.
