"Body Language" one of the most important aspects of communication. Have you ever think about it.? How you are influencing someone with your body language.?

What Is The Body Language.?
Body language involves nonverbal communication signs such as your way of saying, tone of your voice, body movements, facial expressions, gestures in speaking. We can easily say about someone whether he/she is a confident, shy, or talented person by noticing these all signs.
As we notice these all sing subconsciously, some of them are more louder than the action of that particular person. For example, If you are talking with someone on a very important topic but he is checking his mobile after every 3-4 minutes, we recognize that he is not interested in current communication. We get this conclusion by noticing his body language.
The same way our body language represents us, this is the loud sign mentioned in the example above, but there are so many small but more effective signs in body language. How it impacts your personality, yes we are going to discuss this....
Types Of Body Language
There are two main types of body language.
a. positive body language
b. negative body language
Positive Body Language
Positive body language is a type of nonverbal communication that gives comfort, likability, and dignity while talking. We can call it open body language, it helps us to be open and approachable to the person with whom we are speaking. Which helps them to feel at ease during an interaction.
Now you may ask for an example for open or positive body language, here are some more common examples that we don't notice while talking but gives a huge impact on our communication. we may not notice it consciously but subconsciously we notice it and we respond likewise.
a. open and relaxed posture.
b. a firm handshake.
c. direct eye contact.
d. palm open and facing upwards.
e. your facial expressions, smile, touch, voice, etc.
Negative Body Language
Negative body language, yes we also give a significant sign for what we think subconsciously. It includes some nonverbal signs or may represent unconscious expressions such as sadness, anger, nervousness, impatience, boredom, or lack of confidence.
Negative body language may be a response to the people around you, but sometimes we make it a habit of responding without noticing it. It gives a huge impact on your overall personality and can make a negative impression on you.
Some examples are listed below to explain negative body language.
a. too much eye contact
b. looking around the room
c. not listening d. lack of response
e. lack of eye contact (yes if you make too much of eye contact and if you are not maintaining proper eye contact both give a negative approach about you)
Importance Of Body Language In Communication
Body language completes the picture of communication. you can easily notice and identify a person's personality and overall methodology of speaking and approaching people around you. Sometimes you may wonder that why you feel negative about a person or sometimes you like a person without even talking with them, this is all body language magic.
Body language helps us to communicate well, to explain things in an effective way, to explain things non verbally, and most importantly to make a relationship well whether it is a personal one or a professional one.
Let me give you an example of the importance of body language in communication, suppose you are talking with your boss and you want to explain the things in your tender which are going in the wrong way, in that scenario if you use your higher tone of voice and a not needed hand movements it will give a negative impact of yours in front of your seniors. But suppose in the same scenario you are using normal or proper voice tone it will give a nice impression on them and maybe yes maybe it will help you to upgrade your impression on them.
Body Language In Professional Life
Body language is the most important part or element in professional life. If you are ready to read the body language of your co-workers you can communicate more easily with them and can improve your work performance with your teammates.
the same way your co-workers are noticing your body language, so make sure that you are creating a good impact on them and expressing yourself positively, whether it is consciously or subconsciously.
Body Language Importance In Daily Life Activities
Our body language helps others identify our emotions, status, and even our lifestyle. Non-verbal communication plays a significant role in conjunction with spoken words. Let me give you some simple yet very effective ways of using body language to create a good impression and that too without much effort.
a. Your posture should be relaxed, but your back should be straight. This will create a confident and comfortable image of yours.
b. Keep your legs slightly apart, so you take up more space.
c. Don't cross your arms.
d. Perfect tone of voice, neither high nor low, use as per the situation.
e. Do not put your hands in your pockets, this will create a reserved impact on your personality.
If you make a habit of these small things, you will surely add more impression to your personality. After all, we all want a confident and comfortable personality from within and not just show it to the outer world.
Body Language Importance In Achieving Life Goals
As I already said a lot about it on my "YouTube Channel" you can check it out I'll give a link below the article. When we are firm and confident about our life goals we have to show it from our body language.
For example, you are proacting reading to reduce your speaking issues like stammering, fumbling, pauses while speaking, blockages, etc but you are not so continuous about your practice, this will give a signal to your mind that you are not so serious about it.
vise versa you are proacting daily, implementing it in day to day life, taking real-life experiences this will give a serious signal to your mind.
Now you may ask this is a habitual thing and where you are putting body language in it.? But let me tell you guys the way you are behaving, thinking, and implement it in your day-to-day life all are related to your body language.
If you want to achieve goals in your life whether it is personal life or professional life you have to work on your body language. We all know that no one is perfect in this world, maybe you are creating a good impact of yours, you have a perfect body language as per others or as per yourself but deep in the within we all know that we have to improve a lot about it. If You have to create an impression about yourself in front of people and the same way you have to maintain your persona in your own eyes then work on your Body Language.
