Sickness + Body Language = Accidental Inferiority?

When you’re sick, you fold over and hold onto your neck area a lot. At least, I do.

Amy Cuddy claims this body language fosters feelings of inferiority. So I wonder if many years of doing this have contributed to this lack of confidence I now have? This turning in and shutting down? Because of the pain I feel and a want to protect myself, I close my body off and make it smaller.

So I’m already actively noting it and trying to do the opposite as I sit or stand or work; broadening instead of crumbling.
