Body language to boost your self-esteem
- When you grab your chin you're about to win.
- Don't hide your thumbs in your pockets. Driver claims when you hide your thumbs you need reassurance.
- Freeze the fidgeting. Don't be shaking your leg or constantly moving around in your chair. On a job interview or first date can it can reveal anxiety.
- Walk the talk. Have a bigger step. Wide steps reveal tranquility and confidence.
- Pat on the back is back.
