Stress is much easier to achieve (as if any of us want to be stressed!) when your body is tense and tight so consider limbering up a bit.
The Journal of Physical Activity and Health reports that simply stretching for 20 minutes before any challenge – like taking a test or facing an important client or job interview – will increase your chances of excelling. You will think more clearly and be able to focus better, meaning your mental activity will be elevated, simply by stretching out those joints, muscles and tendons. Deep, slow breathing and deliberate movements and deep slow breathing relieve stress and make you more powerful.
