The Right Body Language

Your body language speaks volume about what you’re conveying.

Sometimes, your words may say one thing but your body language will show another.

The most important ones to know are eye contact, hand gestures, and posture.

For eye contact, it’s always a good idea to follow the 50% rule. Look in the eyes of the person you’re talking to 50% of the time. Staring at her for the entire conversation is just plain creepy!

For the hand gestures, put your hand on the side 50% of the time and then use your hand when you’re discussing something a little bit more interesting.

For the posture, stand up straight/sit up straight with your shoulders back. When you’re trying to show that you’re interested and listening attentively, move your head a little bit forward to the direction of your conversation partner.

These are the basics that will help you get started in improving your social skills via body language.

Action Guide:

Choose one body language and start applying it on your next conversation. You will feel awkward in the beginning because you’re going to think about what you’re doing. So relax and listen to your friend attentively. Once you’ve done this enough, it’ll start to feel more natural to you and you’ll immediately see the benefits of getting your body language on point.
