Communicating with your Body Language
What is communication?
Communication refers to the act of sharing, receiving and exchanging information. This includes talking, writing, listening, or reading. Communication is the ability to listen, communicate clearly and respect others’ opinions.
Communication is a Latin term that means “to share”. It’s the sharing of information among different people. It involves the sharing of ideas and concepts, imaginations as well as behaviours and written content. Communication simply refers to the transfer of information between two places. Different ways can be used to transfer information.
Your ability to communicate effectively is key to your success in personal and professional relationships. However, it’s your nonverbal cues (or “body language“) that speaks loudest. The use of nonverbal communication, such as body language, is the use and expressions of your body to communicate, usually done instinctively, rather than consciously.
The nonverbal signals we use to communicate with others is called body language. Experts believe that nonverbal signals are a large part of everyday communication. The things we don’t say, from our facial expressions and body movements can convey a lot of information. According to some estimates, body language could account for 60-65% of all communication. While it is essential to understand body language, it is equally important to pay attention to context and other cues. You should consider signals in a series of actions rather than one.
Communication through body language is part of body language. Non-verbal communication and body language give clues to others about how we feel inside, even if we aren’t speaking. If someone is able to read what they see, facial expressions and body language can give them a glimpse into their inner thoughts. If a person is paying attention to their signals, their body language can help make their message more clear or less confusing.
How to communicate with body language?
Simply put, body language can be described as the secret element of communication we use to communicate our true feelings and emotions.
Eye contact is essential. This is the most important thing on the list. Despite cultural differences, we still communicate with our eyes. Eye contact builds trust and faith in the other person. Our eyes may be the window to our souls, but they can also help us build a relationship with others and communicate clearly.
To absorb more information, keep your arms at your sides and your hands open.
Eye Gaze. Eye Gaze is when someone looks into your eyes as you are having a conversation. This indicates that they are paying attention and interested in what you have to say. But, it can be threatening to maintain eye contact for too long. However, if someone is looking away or avoiding eye contact, it could indicate that they are either distracted, uncomfortable, or trying conceal their true feelings.
Vocal Tone. Vocal tone changes during conversation can also be a nonverbal cue that helps you understand the speaker.
Your personal space. It is an essential part of body language. You can make the other person feel threatened or uncomfortable by your presence. They may also not be able to hear your words because of their discomfort. Respecting and recognising your personal space is key to ensuring that your message doesn’t get lost in the distance.
Pay attention to the feet of others. People focus on their facial expressions, body postures, hand and arm gestures when trying to control body language. Because the feet and legs are not practiced, it is often where the truth is found. People will show anxiety and nervousness when under stress. This can be seen in their foot movements. The feet will shuffle and fidget around furniture or between people. To relieve tension, feet will curl up and kick out.
To project energy, sit straight. Your posture is similar to how your body looks. In other words, if you sit straight it not only makes you more engaged but also reminds your brain to listen and take part.
Body language, which is anything that involves movement and posture, can be used to communicate nonverbally. Most people don’t think twice about it. Understanding body language can help you improve your everyday interactions. Although body language can encompass many expressions, the most important aspects of body language are posture, eye contact and personal space.
