You Are What You Act


Can you really fake it until you make it? You Are What You Act proposes a potential revolutionary new health trend by asking what influences us more, our minds or our bodies. What has a greater effect, thinking positive or acting positive? Will smiling make you happier? Will changing your posture make you more confident? Will acting in love save your relationship? You  Are What You Act speaks to the world’s leading psychologists in embodied cognition including George Lakeoff, Paul Ekman, Philip Zimbardo and Amy Cuddy, while tossing in a curve ball demonstrating that all of these “psychological” exercises are actually things learned in elementary theatre class. Did you know that Tom Cruise, Harrison Ford, Kate Winslet and many other action heroes have actually rescued people in real life? Have they become heroes by acting like heroes in their movies? Is acting the next transformational modality?
