How Positive Body Language Can Increase Confidence for Women

As a body language expert, I learned that our body could influence the brain, spiking confidence levels. However, we need to watch our posture, face, and hands to get there. I always advise my clients battling low confidence to aim for an assertive posture. This involves keeping the legs about five inches apart and aligned with the shoulders. The weight on each leg should be equal and face the audience. Eye contact is also a big gun in the quest for confidence. To fully “inflate” yourself, ensure you maintain eye contact 70% of the entire session, whether it’s a job interview or school presentation. Hand gestures, including reverse hand steeple, the steeple, and hands in the pocket while showing thumps are important during presentation or normal face-to-face conversations with people. With these tips, you can achieve body language that draws people around you closer and change how you feel, increasing your confidence.       

Nutritionist, Cornell University, MS

I believe that nutrition science is a wonderful helper both for the preventive improvement of health and adjunctive therapy in treatment. My goal is to help people improve their health and well-being without torturing themselves with unnecessary dietary restrictions. I am a supporter of a healthy lifestyle – I play sports, cycle, and swim in the lake all year round. With my work, I have been featured in Vice, Country Living, Harrods magazine, Daily Telegraph, Grazia, Women's Health, and other media outlets.
