    • YOUR BODYSPEAKS
    • Is your body dead when youspeak, or does your constant motion give your audience headaches?
    • Does your face signalfear or does it signalexcitement for your topic?
    • Do your hands vibrate, or do they punctuate your words?
    • Your must complement your message with your body duringdelivery. Specifically, be aware of your:
    • posture Body movement Facial expressions Eye contact
    • Tips andTechniques:
    • 1. Remove “Noisy” Movements.
    • For many people, there is as much to be gained from removing nervous and distracting movements as there is from addingconscious gestures. It mayseem counter-intuitive, but this is “addition by subtraction.”
    • 2. Avoid “Forcing”Gestures into Your Speech
    • The best way to avoid forcing hand and arms gestures is to try to strike an even balance between the other forms ofphysical gestures — eye contact, facial expressions, posture, or whole body movements. For example, if you convey an important emotion with yourfacial expression, your arms canrelax to your sides because they “aren’t needed.”
    • 3. Record Video ofYourself Speaking
    • The best way to discover any distractingmovements is to watch yourself delivering aspeech with the volume turned off.
