Another common problem is what’s called the “head forward” posture.I used to have big problems with this but took an Alexander Technique course which helped. A lot of people struggle with what to do with their hands.
Notice how this changes your whole body’s alignment.
Crossing your arms is the biggest no-no, however, as it makes you seem much less friendly and approachable. They protect their drink by holding it out away from their body, with their whole wrist bent around it like a buffer, to guard it from being bumped or spilled in a crowded club.
This is horrible body language, as it subcommunicates a tremendous amount of defensiveness. If you’re in a loud club where you can’t hear each other, you may feel like you need to speak directly into her ear for her to hear you.
Lifting your chest is the easiest, single-step body language improvement you can make.
If you spend a lot of time at a computer, chances are you have a slight forward hunch in your shoulders.
