We’ve written a few posts about physicality, and how it can change your character, literally from the inside out.

When I change my physicality onstage, the scene becomes effortless. Suddenly it’s not me standing in my usual one-leg-locked stance; it’s another entity with their own point of view, and I don’t have to think about how to respond because my physicality almost pushes the words out of me.

This TEDX Talk with Joe Dispenza is fascinating, because it explains how the different parts of our brain inform our behaviour. It also explains how taking physical action helps to create new neural networks – and thus determine who we become.

Dispenza was featured in the film What the Bleep Do We Know!? Click here to see the TEDX video.
