Considering the inner connectedness between mind and body within the topic of health, it's no surprise that exercise is intimately related to one's overall self-image and confidence. This can be attributed to neurological processes (endorphins released by the pituitary gland, we're looking at you!) as well as less concrete benefits, like feeling stronger and understanding your body. If you want to experience that post-workout bliss and gain greater self-esteem, tune into this LeafTV video of celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson demonstrating five workout moves that boost confidence.
In this instructional video, Tracy focuses on moves that encourage women to drop any self-judgement by "owning their sexuality and femininity." As always, her exercises emphasize strength and flexibility, which you'll build over time by incorporating them into your regular workout routine. Once you watch Tracy do pelvic tilts, hip sits, and wrapped lunges, start practicing them yourself and the confidence will follow.
