Body language is communication using body movements or gestures, including facial expressions. 55% of our communication consists of body language, 38% through the way we use our voice and only 7% is through the words we say yes. By developing your awareness of signs and signals of body language, you can more easily understand others and communicate more effectively with them.

Body language includes body movements and gestures, posture, muscle tension, eye contact, skin color, breathing rate and perspiration. It varies between individuals and between different cultures and nationalities. It is therefore important to verify what you see in the body language of a person by asking questions and getting to know the person.
Here are some tips on body language:

Eye Contact Maintain good eye contact shows respect and interest. Too much eye contact and the other person feel self conscious, too little and you'll look disinterested.
Posture Getting the right posture, you will feel good and create a good impression. Slouching can make you feel nervous and uncomfortable. Slightly leaning toward someone can make you look friendly and interested. Keeping you in the head, you'll feel confident and sure of himself.
