All our emotions: anger, laughter, stress, disgust etc. are expressed by our body using different body language clusters. These are universal emotions and are easily recognized by any one.
The answer is yes. This sort of reverse engineering is possible. By teaching your body to not take up certain gestures at certain situations consciously ,you can feel the way you want.
But if you knew the gestures that actually tell that you are stressed out and could efficiently avoid them and adopt more positive gestures ,then you can make yourself feel positive.
This information is very vital as it can help you in numerous situations for ex: when on a date, job interviews, detecting deceit to name some.
Everyday we encounter this emotion. It is a part of our complex world. But it is really unbelievable that just by knowing that certain gestures show stress and avoiding it and adopting more positive gestures can beat stress . Even more shocking is the fact that most of the people in the world are not even aware of this.
Some gestures that show stress are
- Clenching of hands
- Arms wrapped around the torso is actually a defensive gesture and is also related to stress.
- Pursing of the lips .
These are some gestures to name a few that show stress. You will be amazed to find out how common these are.
More on these gestures in the coming posts
