How learning to Read Body Language Can Help in Day to Day Situation


At times it gets really hard to believe what someone else is saying. It may either be because of our gut feeling indicating that something is wrong or something else that just didn’t ring true.

This difference between the words that people speak and our understanding of what they are trying to convey comes from their conscious and unconscious postures and movements, otherwise called body language.

According to a study, communication is only 7 percent verbal, 38 percent tone of voice, and 55 percent body language.

The ability to read a person’s body language is truly an art. It provides a great amount of information on what people are thinking. Sometimes there are subtle movements, facial expressions, and small gestures that indicate that something is going on. The way people sit, stand, walk, and talk all speak something about them. Thus, whatever is going inside a person reflects on the outside.

Sometimes we are saying something but our body language is revealing something else. When this happens we are sending mixed messages. Eventually, our body language affects how we respond to people and the response we get in return.

By learning more about body language and knowing what it may mean, we can develop the ability to read people with ease. This way we can communicate with them effectively. Added to this, by increasing our understanding of people, we can even become more aware of what messages we should convey to them and what not.

Learning to read body language can have great advantages. Here is how it can help people in day to day situations.

1. Helps Connect Better

Since 55 percent of our communication is through body language, it helps us connect better with people as it allows us to expand our communication abilities. Thus, we are able to understand small gestures that others make, which can eventually create a better connection.

2. Prevents Conflicts

People use a different type of body language when they are upset or angry. By learning to understand this special type of body language, we would we able to know when our partner is angry or upset.

3. Opens Up Our World

In 30 minutes of a normal conversation, people send over more than 800 nonverbal signals. So, there is a lot going on in normal conversations that we are not aware of everything.

By learning more about body language our brain actively looks to catch these nonverbal signals. It is just like looking at the world in high definition. You begin to unveil more information.

4. Improves Our Presence

By studying body language we also learn about our own presence. We find out what signals we send out to other people through different gestures and postures, and how they perceive us. Thus, we become more aware of our body.

By improving our body language, we not only have a positive impact on other people, but also on ourselves.

Easy Ways to Give Up Smoking


Fact: Cigarette smoking kills more than 480,000 Americans each year, with more than 41,000 of these deaths from exposure to secondhand smoke.

Smoking Is Injurious To Health!

Indeed, cigarette smoking has some serious health risks. This is why it is one problem people seek different solutions for. They are always in search of different ways to somehow kick their smoking habit. But getting rid of this habit is very difficult for every smoker whether they are lifetime pack-a-day smokers, or teen smokers.

Successfully quitting smoking not only requires a change in the smoker’s behavior and coping up with symptoms of nicotine withdrawal, but also finding healthy ways to manage their moods. With the perfect game plan,  smokers can break their addiction and be a part of the millions and billions of people who have gotten rid of this habit forever.

Quitting Smoking – A Tough Task!

Smoking tobacco is a psychological habit, as well as a physical addiction. The nicotine offers a temporary but addictive high to smokers. Therefore, completely restricting nicotine intake at once will cause their body to experience severe cravings and symptoms of physical withdrawal.

For some people, smoking is part of their daily ritual. It is an automatic response for them to smoke cigarettes with their morning coffee or evening tea, or even at the end of a long, tiring and hectic day.

Since nicotine also effects the brain of the smoker, providing them with a “feel good” effect, many people smoke to deal with anxiety and depression, and cope up with stress.

Thus, to quit smoking successfully, a smoker needs to address both, their habits and the addiction, and this can only be achieved with the correct support and strategies. Here are a few ways that may help.

Separate Your Identity From Smoking

Once they have made their mind that smoking is an ill habit, and decided to part ways from it, it gets easier for smokers to quit. Therefore, it is important for smokers to separate their real identities from smoking as early as possible, if they really want to quit.

Smoking Isn’t Your Friend

Smoking steals a great amount of a smoker’s money, looks, health, and even years from their life. Of course, friends don’t do this.

Many smokers turn to smoking when they are low, or stressed, because apparently smoking is their friend. But what kind of a friend steals everything from you and stabs you in the back in the end?!

See Through Its Lies

Millions of people in the 20th century have died due to smoking; something that they paid a lot of money for. A smoker who seriously wants to quit smoking, they must accept first the fact that is it not okay to self-destruct.

  • Smoking does not help concentrate. In fact, in the long run, it can reduce the ability to concentrate dramatically.
  • Smoking does not clam the nerves. It is the deep breathing and breaks that relax smokers, not the tobacco.
  • Is smoking cool? Of course, it isn’t. It is threatening for the smoker’s existence.

Psychological Hacks To Public Speaking

speaker-at-business-conference-and-presentationMost vibrant, whip-smart professionals find it easy to make it through their daily corporate life. However, when it is time for a presentation, they often find themselves locked up, presenting in a way that is difficult to watch.

If you fall into the same category, you could use some help. Here are a few psychological hacks to public speaking that will allow you to deliver presentations that leave the impact:

We Read People Instantly

As soon as you step up on the stage or the front of the conference room, the audience is going to start sizing you up.

A confident body language and researched introduction can help you start on the right foot.

They subconsciously start taking your lead through the presentation and stay attentive throughout.

We Are Wired To Follow Leaders

When you are presenting, you have all the authority in the room. Therefore, the decisions you make next are vital so that you don’t lose their attention.

It is important that you stay in form from the start and take lead. Read about the 1960’s Stanley Milgram’s experiments that showed how it is almost impossible for people to oppose authority.

We Are Attentive To Vocal Tone

How you say something is as important as what you say. The greatest speakers across history have used this technique throughout history with variations in their volumes, articulation and modulation.

Professor Alex Pentland from MIT also wrote a book, Honest Signals in which he emphasized on the importance of using vocal tone to communicate effectively.

We Imitate Emotions

Passion and nervousness are two highly communicable emotions. Focus on what you would like people to feel during your presentation and then exhibit the emotion yourself. The emotions will be conveyed through your body language and vocal tone. There are special Mirror Neurons in our brains that allow us to literally experience what other people experience.

One last thing; reading slides never worked for everyone. Your audience is going to be more strongly affected by your words. There should be enough visuals to support your words but not so many that they interfere.

Entrepreneurial Stress Is A Real Thing—Here’s How You Handle It

pexels-photoEntrepreneurs handle a good deal of stress on a day to day basis. Whether you are starting out or have already taken your startup to level 2, you are still bound to encounter obstacles where you just can’t handle all that’s on your plate.

Stress is a real thing that not many people mention when talking about entrepreneurship. If you are wondering how to handle all this stress, these tips from leading business consultant and hypnotist, Marshall Sylver will help:

It Is Okay To Invest In Help

As an entrepreneur, you are passionate about your vision and know that you can achieve it. However, this can often lead you to think you can do everything by yourself.

This makes it critical to look for help in the earlier stage of your business. If you can’t really hire fulltime employees, consider outsourcing different functions of your business.

If your business runs 24/7, you can also invest in a VA to answer the phone and take care of administrative tasks. You will be at peace knowing that while you are doing your part, you have professionals to take care of the rest.

Don’t Always Go For Cheap

One of the most important advice for entrepreneurs is to not go with cheap every time. As soon as you officially start your business, invest in a recognized attorney.

Going into legal contracts and partnerships without one could end up costing you thousands of dollars. You never know what kind of issues might come your way. Remember, if you haven’t protected your business enough you might lose a lot of it down the line.

Say No To Family Money

It is quite common for entrepreneurs to ask family members to fund their business. This is going to add to a lot of stress down the line. It is stressful enough to start up a business, you don’t want to end up leaving a family member in financial ruins because of it.

There are plenty of ways to finance your business. Apply through your bank or a credit union and return it with ease.

While entrepreneurs can work 24/7, it is highly impractical. Make sure that you have enough personal time by setting boundaries.
