In every person’s life, there comes a time when you know an important event or opportunity is approaching. And that you need to make the absolute most out of it.

It can be anything: a job interview, a business meeting, a serious deal, a talk with a boss, or even a promotion. Whatever the case may be, you have to be ready for it.

You may spend hours thinking about what you’re going to say (maybe even planning your speech), picking the right look for the occasion, and learning more about the people you’re going to talk to (if you’ve never met them before).

But there’s another thing you need to be aware of. And that thing is your body language.

This method of non-verbal communication is just as important as the verbal one. And the number of ways in which you can express yourself is huge. Body language includes posture, facial expressions, eye movements, touches, gestures, and even the use of personal space.

So, what is body language capable of?

  • It can act as a reinforcement to your speech. When your body’s behavior supports everything you’re saying, your words are more expressive and convincing.
  • On the other hand, body language can replace verbal communication completely. Facial expressions, gestures, or certain movements can say a lot without the need to use any words.
  • Last but not least, body language can display your emotions. It can show others how you currently feel, what your true intentions are, and whether or not you’re being honest with everybody.

while some body language signs may be interpreted differently in various cultures, there are still common signs that everyone in the world understands in the same way.
