Improving body language
A particularly bad quirk of mine that was recently pointed out to me is that from years of concentrating on computer monitors full of source code with a slight squint, I've developed a crease between my eyes . Isn't aging great? When my face is relaxed, it still shows up and makes me look mad even though I think I'm expressionless. I find myself raising both eyebrows constantly to compensate and smooth out that crease. I may look like I've had a face lift, but at least I don't look mad!
My favorite from the list in the article is #14: Lower your drink. I have a general problem with dehydration so I'm constantly drinking something and feel like a complete dork holding a glass like it's some kind of fashion accessory. The advice from The Personality Blog is, "Don’t hold your drink in front of your chest. In fact, don’t hold anything in front of your heart as it will make you seem guarded and distant. Lower it and hold it beside your leg instead."
