Our body has its own language that speaks much louder than words. Recent studies have revealed that people who know how to communicate effectively using those nonverbal gestures have higher levels of emotional intelligence. We at Epic Universe decided to share these body language habits that will hopefully help you one day.

1. Always Sit up straight

When you sit with your back straight and shoulders back, you look more self-confident, this is a power position. The more space your body occupies, the more successful you look. Never slouch: it makes you look smaller and projects less power.

Slumping in your chair, putting your elbows on the table, and covering your face with your hands are all signs of disrespect. They resonate that you have no interest in what you hear.

2. Gesture control

If you overstate your gestures, It would look like you’re telling lies or that you’re trying to hide something. On the other hand, gestures like spreading your arms apart show that you are open and relaxed.

3. Open arms

When you cross your arms, you’re sending one clear signal: “I’m not ready to negotiate, or I don’t agree with what you’re saying.” Even if you smile, crossed arms and legs aren’t good body language habits.

4. Don’t touch your hair

If you regularly touch your hair, plays with it, or tries to fix it all the time while having a conversation, you need to drop this bad habit right away! This only demonstrates your lack of attention insecurity.

5. Smile Appropriately

Smiling at the right place and at the right time shows that you have control over the situation around you and you can keep calm no matter how stressful the circumstances are. But keep in mind that smiling at everything and everyone does not support you in establishing your mark.

6. Eye contact

This right here is the most crucial thing to learn about body language. While forceful eye contact can intimidate the other party, and if you’re avoiding any eye contact, it sends a message too: you have something to hide. You should try to hold eye contact naturally by looking into the eyes and using pauses to deliver the correct message.

7. Steady handshakes

Never ever give a weak handshake. It doesn’t mean that you have to give a bone-crushing handshake either, but when someone invites you to shake hands, make sure it’s strong. A good firm handshake right away projects self-confidence and security.
