We don’t always notice what we’re doing with our legs, our hands, or our facial expression while other people are around us. It might not even cross our mind that those things are important. But body language can actually say a lot about your personality and feelings. And it might just help you make a good impression and get the job of your dreams, or, on the contrary, make people want to avoid you.
We think that there are certain body language habits you need to unlearn, which might have a positive effect on your life. Let’s see what those habits are!
Your posture can say a lot about your level of self-confidence. If you’re slouching, it will show that you’re feeling insecure. If you don’t fix your posture, slouching might become a habit and you will do it even if you aren’t in a situation that makes you feel uneasy. And people might still see it as a sign of low self-esteem.
2. Crossing your legs or arms
It’s natural for a lot of people to cross their arms and legs when they sit. However, if you’re speaking to someone, this might make you look defensive. It could send a message that you`re not open to interacting with another person or hearing what they have to say, or that you feel uncomfortable in their presence. If you keep your arms and legs uncrossed and your hands visible, you will appear more trustworthy.
