What 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.
