Connecting on a Deeper Level: Observing Body Language

Body language can speak volumes between people even if there are no words to accompany it. Often, people may say one message, but their body language can say another, meaning they may not be truthful in what they say. By observing and becoming more aware of body language and what it might mean, we can learn to read people more easily and understand some of their body movements. By better understanding their movements, we can be better prepared to communicate with them while at the same time better understanding the body language we may be conveying to them. Even though there are times that we can send mixed messages, we can try to get our point across using certain behaviors. Our body language affects how we act with others and how we react to them as well as how they can react to ours.

Until next time ...
