Tip #4 – Practise smiling and holding eye contact directly
Try holding firm eye contact for about 80% of the conversation. Also, wear a smirk – a light smile on your face throughout the day will make you look more approachable, fun, and confident as a person.
Tip #5 – Stance and posture
Start with your feet shoulder-width apart, and your toes pointing outwards. This is considered open body language. Closed body language, on the other hand, is associated with fear, lack of confidence, and shyness.
Tip #6 – Don’t cross your arms
When we’re nervous, we tend to put our hands in our pockets, behind our backs or cross them to cover our chest, which seems introverted and passive. Keep them relaxed by your side, on your waist, and use them to emphasize certain points of the conversation.
