Body Language Tips for 2013

The antiquated idea that 93 percent of communication consists of nonverbal cues may have been disproven, but no one can ignore the power of the way we carry and present ourselves. It absolutely speaks volumes. Here are three tips about body language from a recent Forbes article, 10 Simple and Powerful Body Language Tips for 2013.

1. Smile—and make a hard task easier.
This can actually send messages to your brain that tell your body you can do something you might have thought you could not.

2. Defuse a tense situation with relaxed body language.
Place your body at an angle instead of squaring off, which can come across as confrontational.
Maximize your authority…by relaxing

3. When you appear calm, comprised and relaxed, you appear more confident and powerful.
