Change Your Body Language

hey December 15, 2020

Walk before you run. The skills listed below are the foundation of self-confidence, which will come in handy later on later when you’re aspiring for bigger goals that require a confident attitude, such as getting a date or applying for a promotion.

1. Change Your Body Language

Research from Ohio State University shows that standing tall and putting your hands in your hips ala Superman improves your confidence. But if that’s a tad too much for you, just stand tall and pull your shoulders back so you’re not hunching. That simple act gives the impression that you’re confident.

Look at the person you’re talking to, not their shoes or their surroundings.

Slow down when you’re talking. Not only will people understand you better, talking in a clear and well-paced manner makes people feel like you’re confident in what you’re saying. Just imagine how you feel when Morgan Freeman says something, you just can’t help but believe him.
