Body Language Tip #1: Unblocking Your Own Obstacle
If you’re having a disagreement with someone you care about check to see where your arms and hands are. Studies have shown that people who cross their arms tend to do better while attempting problem solving but during an argument it can send the wrong message! If you are folding your arms across your chest, you may be sabotaging your chances of working things out.
The next time you’re trying to persuade someone of your point or get them to give in to you, try unfolding your arms and have them drop down to your sides. By doing this it may signal to the other person that you are less defensive and more open to them or their ideas-whether you are or not!
