What does your body language shout?

Have you ever walked down the passage at work and a colleague asked you "Is everything fine with you?" or "Are you okay?"

You answer "yes everything is fine" and wonder why they asked.

Often we don't realise how much or loud our body language 'talks'. What would you think when you pass someone in a passage walking with his face in a frown and his head down looking at the floor? Now imagine you arrive home after a long day with a lot on your mind and projects at their most critical stage and deadlines to meet and thunder on your face........................... What is your face telling your spouse or your kids? What is your body language 'shouting' to your loved ones? Your spouse probably thinks "there we go again" and you haven't even said hello yet.

Did you know that your body language counts for 60% of your communication?

It is always beneficial to develop sensitivity to these type of events and tune into what is going on with you personally and the external factors that influence you. Adjusting your body language is only one example of what you need to know to help you take appropriate actions to be in control and prevent problems.
