Confidence Shows in Our Posture

Having good posture is important because good posture demonstrates a high level of confidence.  Body language counts greatly – we make an almost immediate judgement about people from our very first visual impression of them.  Having good posture makes us feel good, too!

Good posture should include:

Having our head in a straight position – this makes us seem in control, while tilting our head just a little bit to one side, shows that we want to be friendly.

Holding our arms to the side of our body, rather than in front, also suggests confidence.

Keeping our legs as still as possible is important – we tend to move them around when we are nervous or stressed.
