Your body language can reveal a lot, maybe even what you don’t want or don’t know about yourself. The human body has its own language and speaks the way it wants. You may choose other words and not show how you feel or how it really is, the body has its own “mind” and shows what it wants. Nonverbal signals reveal a lot, you can often observe it in other people. Those who know how to work with these signals have half won. Do you want to be more successful, even with non-verbal expressions? Try these few habits. It may take a while for your body to master these little things, but believe me, it can help.
Sit up straight
Are you at a meeting, watching an online presentation or whatever? Then think about how you sit. With your elbows on the table, covering your face with your hands, or sitting hunched over and almost out of your chair, it seems disrespectful, as if you don’t care what the other person is telling you. Sit up straight, pushing your shoulders back will give you confidence and you will act from a position of strength, not frightening. Maybe it wouldn’t be out of the question to think about it.
People often gesture and wave their gestures in exaggeration to explain something. Even if you mean it, it can seem like you’re lying or trying to hide something. If you have a business meeting, try to cut back a bit. Open gestures, unfolded hands on your chest will help you a lot at work.
Hair? Watch it.
Are you one of those people who constantly touches their hair? Do you still play with them, edit them and keep shifting from side to side? It is a sign of nervousness, insecurity and lack of attention. If you don’t have to, don’t touch your hair excessively. It may not work well in business meetings, it can even be a signal for more dominant individuals to push you into a corner.
