Body language is non-verbal communication through gestures, movement and expression.
Your movements show feelings, attitudes and emotion. According to research conducted at the University of California, Los Angeles, 55% of our emotional communication in face-to-face communication comes from your gestures.
So whether you like it or not, your movements and gestures say a lot more about you than you may want to reveal. Your expression speaks louder than words, revealing your thoughts, attitudes and moods.

What do these gestures say to you non-verbally?
1. Smiling gives a positive message and shows pleasure.
2. Blushing shows embarrassment.(To control blushing, take a few breaths.)
3. Crying is a sign of sadness or extreme emotion. A shrug can mean indifference, disdain, embarrassment or not knowing something.
4. Standing tall with good posture indicates success and purpose. Positioning yourself at the right distance from the person with whom you are talking is important. This position is not so close as to be threatening and not so far away as to appear distant.
