Being mindful of your body-language
Body-language communicates how you feel and what you think more than you realize!
Being mindful of your body-language is the first step to thoughtfully considering what you are saying to others with your eyes, shoulders, hand gestures and slight movements. Some studies suggest that words are only 7% of communication and that physiology (body-language) makes up 54% of what we communicate to others! Tone of voice makes up the balance. ⠀
As coaches, we learn to create awareness of our own body-language and to pay close attention to the body-language of others. ⠀
Start today by creating awareness. What are you communicating to others with your eyes? Your gestures? Could it be boredom, disdain, disapproval? ⠀
Best (and most painful 😝) way to create awareness of your own body language is watching yourself on video!!! ⠀
Try it today! 👍⠀
