Why Is The Right Form Of Your Body Language Important To Communication?
Communication is a vital part of any kind of relationship. It is a known fact that the growth of a relationship is ushered by the feeling of love and good communication and your body language between partners.
But, unknown to some, communication can come in two different forms: verbal communication and non-verbal communication. In a relationship, it would be best for couples to know more about these two forms of communication, especially the non-verbal one.
Verbal communication, for most people, is the only means of communicating. It is a method of consciously communicating with other individuals with the use of words. This form of communication is used each and everyday of your life. Whether you are at work or at school, you always make use of verbal communication.
Non-verbal communication, simply put, is a form of communicating with other individuals without the use of words. Most often than not, non-verbal communication is done unconsciously. Unlike verbal communication, a person may not be aware that he or she is already communicating with a person non-verbally.
On the other hand, the person on the receiving end is not also aware that he or she is receiving some sort of message. The message is then instinctively deciphered and a formation of reaction happens.
Take note: most often than not, people are doing these without them being aware that they are actually doing it. You should also remember that whether you like it or not, you will always be communicating with other people non-verbally.
Your Body Language
A very good example of non-verbal communication is body language. It is a type of language, that instead of using words, it uses body movements and the body itself.
In body language, there are different cues that convey the non-verbal message. These cues are the following but not limited to: body angles and posture, eye movements, arm and leg positions, and distance from the person you are talking to.
With these cues, it would be easier to see the messages that other persons want to say.
Unlike verbal languages, body language is most often than not in truthful. It is not a very good medium for telling lies. What a person may verbally be saying could be different from what he or she really wants to say and you will be able to see this through his or her body language.
Importance Of Your Body Language
There are just times when we are at a loss for words and we do not know what to say (which usually happens in front of somebody you have feelings for. Even with couples in a relationship, there will be just times when words are hard to come by. This happens because verbal communication also has its limits. It can only do so much to a point where it all comes down to how articulate a person is and how he or she is good with words. When this happens, it will be non-verbal communication like body language that comes to the rescue. After all, actions do speak louder than words.
Communication whether words or tonality both have a huge impact on our relationships.
