What Does Your Body Language Say About You?

peaceWhat does your body language say about you? It’s apart of who we are, it’s what we do without even thinking. “Body language is a kind of nonverbal communication, where thoughts, intentions, or feelings are expressed by physical behaviors, such as facial expressions, body posture, gestures, eye movement, touch and the use of space.”  The common phrase i’m sure we have all heard, ” It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it.” This is a legit factor of life that can really be a great part of you, or your downfall. We all need to be more aware of how we take in information and express emotion. You can master your body language and get control over this department of unspoken emotion. Lets break down this non-verbal communication and analyze the components in detail.

Anger– Occurs when expectations are not met or goals are not obtained.

  • Neck/Face flushed red
  • Threats
    • Eye gazing for long periods of time or frowning of the face
    • Clenched fist or squints

Fear/Anxiety/Nervousness – Occurs when basic needs are compromised or challenged.

  • Fidgeting
  • Not making eye contact
  • Errors in speech
  • Sweating
  • Tension in muscles

Sadness- Occurs when the opposite of happy is presented, usually a sudden depressive state.

  • Looking down or away from others
  • Drooping of the body

Embarrassment- Occurs from transgression of values or personal guilt.

  • False smiling or grimacing
  • Flushed cheeks

Surprised -Occurs when the unexpected is presented.

  • Raised eyebrows
  • Widened Eyes
  • Open mouth

Happiness- Occurs when goals are achieved or needs are fulfilled.

  • Smiling
  • Open hands and arms
  • Smiling of the eyes

So now that we have an idea of whats going on with our gestures, let’s make a conscious decision to be more aware of our non verbal communication. Everyone has to start somewhere, this step doesn’t require words, just effort.

Fun Things To Do On A Rainy Day

Rainy Day

Bored? Here are 5 fun things to do on a rainy day. People tend to sleep the day away and relax or let their mind wander to places it doesn’t need to go. Don’t fall into the rainy day spell get up and do something fun!

1. Watch movies you’ve never seen before.

There is so much time on your hands when your just sitting in the house letting the day pass, why not watch an awesome movie?! Don’t wanna leave your home to go out and see something new at the movies? There are plenty of things to watch on Netflix. That way with Netflix you have the option of watching all types of tv series and cool movies, you can even access Netflix through your cellphone. For a small fee Netflix allows you to watch movies and they cater to what you like based off what you watch. So get some popcorn and a good pillow and get to the fun!

2. Grab a recipe book and try to make something new.

A lot of people don’t find happiness in the kitchen but for the one’s that do want to give it a shot new recipes just might do the trick. The 4th of July will be here soon, wouldn’t it be cool to learn how to make an awesome fun dish to add to the festivities? There are so many cool websites to like godecookery.com and food.com that have recipe sections just for beginners. After your done making your meal, try to get some feedback from someone to see how it taste. You never know, you just might be good at cooking!

3. Rearrange your room.

Rearranging your room can sound more like a chore than a fun activity actually it can be pretty fun. Changing your room around can give you new insight on how you feel about your personal space. If your holding on to old clothing places like The Salvation Army and Value World would be happy to take those clothes off your hands. Mindbodygreen.com has some awesome tips on how to perform a “Space Cleansing” and control the positive and negative energy in your room. We all need a cleansing in some form or fashion just to get a fresh start, why not start in your bedroom and get some positive energy going?

4. Online Shopping is a must.

Pass the time online and do some shopping. It’s such an easy and convenient thing to do when you’re sitting at home and wouldn’t mind adding a few new items to your collection. I’m not saying go crazy while shopping but looking up some cool gizmos and gadgets can be really fun. Amazon.com really has a nice selection of just about anything you can think of. Don’t hesitate to look around if things are too expensive. Where there is an original, there is a copy, so find something that still fits your need but also fits your budget.

5. Find a way to work out.

I know working out can really be a challenge for a lot of people but it is so important for the human body. Even if you find a free workout video online or on tv, that’s still getting your adrenaline going and getting that heart rate going. Break a sweat, find someone to come over and work out with you. Yoga can even be done at home if you google some relaxing Yoga positions. Walk up and down your stairs, find house hold items that can be used as weights. You don’t have to spend money at an expensive gym, you can have all the fun of working out and feeling great right in the comfort of your own home.

Hope you guys enjoyed those 5 fun tips, have fun on your rainy day!
