What do our body language and nonverbal words tell others, about us?
How do we perceive nonverbal communications? Whatever our response may be, nonverbal communications have been overstated over the years. Nonverbal communications are important and should not be neglected.
We’ve read in books, been taught by our teachers that if we could learn the secrets of body language, we’d be able
to effectively read people’s minds, to know what they were thinking if they crossed their arms, or scratched their nose, or looked to the left.
Maybe we could even convince them to like us more by adjusting our body language.
Well, all these claims are true but have been overstated.
Nevertheless, nonverbal communication is a major avenue through which we reach other
people. It’s a major avenue through which we miscommunicate, as well.
If we must be effective and superb communicators, we need to pay close attention to our spoken and nonverbal words. Whether we choose to believe it’s relevant, others do.

Let’s learn to pay to hand gestures, tone of voice ( if they’ve got a high pitched voice or a loud voice), cross-cultural differences in nonverbal communication, and the role of facial expressions, particularly because the face is good at communicating emotion.
Many of us have missed out on important details when other people spoke because we failed to pay attention to their nonverbal words.
Nonverbal communication doesn’t have to be intentional. But guess what?
Communication happens when you speak or don’t speak with or without your permission, with or without your intention.
In a broken world like ours, people are willing and ready to make all sorts of mistaken assumptions based on our body language, clothes, hand gestures, etc. It’s time we started sending out the right messages.
Blessings and Love ❤️
