    In the opinion of communication experts, our body language is the main factor that influences how other people react to us. It represents 55% of the overall general impression that we make.

    Our voice is responsible for 38% of the impact, while what we actually say has very little effect.

    It is clear, then, that if we want to make a good impression, we need to have the right body language. But how good is yours?

    One fundamental element of body language is eye contact. When we look people in the eye, we are showing them respect and that we are interested in what they are saying.

    It also shows that you are an open person and have nothing to hide. A good general rule is to maintain eye contact two-thirds of the time.

    If you have much more eye contact than this, you can be too intense. On the contrary, if you avoid eye contact, people may think that you're not interested in them, or that you are not a sensitive person. And you don't want to give that impression, do you?

    You should think about your posture too. If your posture is good, you'll automatically start feeling better.

    So, the next time you're feeling down, look at how you're standing or sitting. Your back probably won't be straight and you will be looking down.

    Poor posture inhibits breathing and can make you feel nervous or sad. It will also give a negative impression.

    Improving your posture is sensible. Not only will it improve your breathing and ability to concentrate, it will help you avoid back problems in the future.

    Finally, your ears also play a vital role in communicating. Now, a friend of mine can move her ears, but I'm not talking about that!

    I'm talking about how you use your ears! All of us have two ears and only one mouth, and we should try to use them in that proportion. If you listen twice as much as you talk, you will be excellent company. And we all love someone who listens to us, don't we?
