Body language

18 Body-Language Tricks To Make A Great First Impression

How you sit says a lot about you.

Research shows that 60 to 90% of our communication with others is nonverbal, which means the body language we use is extremely important.

In addition, it's especially important to make a good first impression. Why? Because within the first few minutes of meeting someone, we are already making decisions about what the other person's intentions are, and whether or not the person is credible and someone we want to do business with.

Therefore, the way you present yourself — especially the way you communicate nonverbally in those first few crucial minutes after meeting someone new — could make or break what could potentially be a very important business relationship.

Here are 18 ways you can use your body language to communicate your credibility and intentions in a way that will set you up for success every time.

Positive body

1. Begin with your posture — back straight but not rigid, and shoulders relaxed so you don't look too uptight.

2. Align your body with the person you're talking to — this shows you're engaged.

3. Keep your legs apart a bit instead of crossed — this demonstrates that you're relaxed, and research shows that you retain more information when you keep your legs uncrossed.

4. Lean in a bit — this shows focus and that you really are listening.

5. Mirror the body language you are observing, showing you are in agreement and that you like — or are sincerely trying to like — the person you are with.

Positive arms and hands

6. Keep your arms relaxed at your sides, showing you are open to what someone else is communicating, and as with your legs, keep your arms uncrossed in order to absorb more of what's going on.

7. Use your hands to gesture when you speak — this improves your credibility with the listener. In addition, there is evidence that gesturing with your hands while speaking improves your thinking processes.

8. Always remember to greet others with a firm handshake — but not too firm. A firm handshake is probably one of the most important body language moves, because it sets the tone for the entire conversation. Who wants to shake hands and then have a conversation with a wet noodle?

9. Be aware of different cultural greetings and closures prior to your meeting.

Positive head

10. With appropriate nods and genuine smiles, you are showing the speaker that you understand, agree, and are listening to his or her opinions.

11. Laughter is always a great way to lighten the mood when used appropriately, and once again, it shows you're listening.

12. Keep good eye contact by looking the person in the eye when he or she is communicating. Keep eye contact going when you speak, because this shows you are interested in the conversation. Watch your eye contact, though — if you don't take breaks to contemplate your next answer, your eye contact could be viewed as staring (translation: aggressive or creepy).

13. Beware of blinking too much. Rapid blinking could communicate that you are feeling uncomfortable with the current conversation.

14. Mirror the other person's facial expressions, because once again, this demonstrates that you are in agreement and like — or are making an effort to like — the other person.

15. Monitor your voice. Keep it low, and don't end every sentence as if it's a question. Take a deep breath and speak slowly and clearly.

The little extras

16. During your meeting, take notes. This will demonstrate that you are engaged and care about what the other person is saying, but remember to make eye contact regularly so the speaker knows you're still with him or her.

17. Watch the body language of others, as they may be communicating to you through their body language that they would like to conclude the meeting. People are much more likely to engage you in future conversations if you observe and act on their body language cues.

18. End the meeting with a firm handshake and eye contact, showing you enjoyed your time and hope to meet again.

This is what I read today. Good advice and its help me to meet people more confident.

Are e-Cigarettes Safer Than Real Cigarettes?

i just read this from website. i dont know exactly how the dangerous using this e-cigarette. just readand enjoy it :)

The burning debate continues about the safety of electronic cigarettes, popularly called e-cigarettes. The big question is: are they a safer substitute to real cigarettes?
The major difference between the two types is pretty straightforward. A conventional cigarette burns tobacco whereas the e-cigarette uses a battery-propelled heat to vaporise odourless propylene glycol or varying amounts of nicotine contained in a cartridge. The vapour is then inhaled by a user, without involving any real smoke.

Mired in controversies

Invented by Chinese pharmacist Hon Lik in 2003, e-cigarettes were introduced to the market a couple of years later, sparking one controversy after another. The American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had threatened to ban their sale and almost half-a-dozen anti-smoking groups have vehemently opposed them. The main concern being its safety and the way it’s being marketed towards children and teenagers.
Lobbyists representing tobacco companies have urged the FDA to take serious action against e-cigarettes manufacturers and ban their sale, fearing a threat to their profits.
Nicotine in a liquid form can be dangerous, especially if it comes in contact with the skin. And there are some uncertainties about the long term use of propylene glycol too.
Since their inception into the global market, regulators have urged the e-cigarette manufacturers to re-evaluate their safety measures. They fear that not much research has been undertaken to know what chemicals or toxins are generated in the vapours from e-cigarettes.
Scientists have expressed their doubts about lack of health warnings on the package and environmentalists are concerned that not enough precaution is being taken to dispose of e-cigarettes and its accessories, which could pose an environmental risk of nicotine contamination.

Marketing Concerns

It’s the marketing of e-cigarettes that has faced a lot of heat. Experts have raised serious concerns that could increase nicotine addiction amongst younger generation and could potentially lure kids to try tobacco-related products.
Anti-tobacco aficionados argue that e-cigarettes may prompt adolescents to give it a try for the first time, as they come in luring flavours such almond, cherry, chocolate and fruit. The fact that they are shaped and look like a normal cigarette, promotes the social appeal of smoking. As they can be purchased online, it is deemed to be misused by the minors.

Banned in several countries

In 2010 the Tobacco Regulation raised several warnings about e-cigarettes. Countries such as Canada, Brazil, Thailand, Hong Kong and Saudi Arabia have banned e-cigarettes.
However, in United Kingdom the sale and use of e-cigarettes is legal.

FDA’s perspective

Although FDA has not fully assessed e-cigarettes for safety or its usefulness, but having conducted laboratory studies of certain samples, it has found that quality control processes used to manufacture are inadequate. The FDA has also found irregularities in e-cigarette cartridges that confuse the user with regard to the amount of nicotine contained in it.
However, at end of 2010 FDA formally regulated e-cigarettes on the premise that they are marketed as both a drug and a drug-delivery device.
A professor from Boston University identified the contents in e-cigarette liquid and vapours and found that the carcinogen levels in e-cigarettes are up to 1000 times lower than in conventional cigarettes.
Top e-cigarette brands have started using warning labels as their products do contain nicotine.

Acts as a weaning device

E-cigarette manufacturers have suggested that many regular smokers have found ways of reducing or quitting their smoking habit after trying e-cigarettes. And the varying levels of nicotine acts a weaning device too. It is claimed to be clearly healthier when compared to the number of chemicals present in tobacco smoke.
University of East London carried out a research and concluded that e-cigarettes can be useful in reducing nicotine-related withdrawal symptoms temporarily.
Although we still are not completely sure about the safety of e-cigarettes but we certainly know the harmful effects of regular smoking.
