Body language is one of the most important and powerful ways of conveying certain messages to those around us, and even to ourselves. Researchers have linked the use of powerful body language with how confident we feel about ourselves.
Body language is one of our primal ways of communicating our needs, thoughts/feelings and when done effectively, can:
- It can help you to connect with others and get your message across more effectively.
- It can communicate confidence and assertiveness.
- The right body postures can make you more persistent/courageous.
- Certain body postures can improve your performance.
Social psychologist Amy Cuddy’s TED Talk from 2012 titled, “Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are“ has been viewed over 5 million times and ranks among the fifteen most watched TED Talks. She talks about how small tweaks to our body language, done consistently over time, can have a massive impact on our quality of life.
