Real Age Tips : How's Your Posture ?

How's Your Posture?
Want to feel good about your work, your family . . . yourself?
Try picking up that chin and pulling back those shoulders.
That's right -- carry yourself with confidence. Studies have
that people who consciously improve their posture
actually end
up improving their self-esteem. And it's one of
the keys to
living a 360-degree life. What's that, you ask?

Confidence Carry-Over
When you carry yourself with confidence, not only do you
feel better about yourself, but you make a better impression
on other people, too. You know, like that new boss you're
dying to impress.

The Surround-Sound Life
Another key to standing tall on life's tilt-a-wheel ride?
Living a balanced, 360° life, says Cathie Black, president
of Hearst Magazines and mom of two. That means maintaining
equilibrium between work and everything else. Sure, you can
constantly pull 80-hour work weeks, but you won't produce
your best stuff if you do. Spending time with family, meeting
new people, taking trips -- having a life outside the office --
is necessary in order to fuel your creative energies and
recharge yourself.

You also need to ask yourself what you want most out of life,
says Black -- not once, but often, because the person you are
at 21 is very different from the person you are at 35, 47, or 61.
Priorities, dreams, and goals change. Refocus and go after yours!

Black's new book.
