Heads Up, Chest Out, Cheese, Serve!

Like they say, a healthy mind is a healthy body. Most people have no idea how great their body is designed to feel and so they suffer physical and sometimes psychological trauma.If you are not familiar with squints and you met someone with some difficulty with seeing, you may feel offended if you are engaging with them from a relatively far off distance and they squint. What you may not know is that they are in fact squinting so that they can see you more clearly and they can observe your communication (body language) more accurately. However, if this method is not appreciated, communication may be distorted and the message may be lost.

There is little to no help that can be given to certain poor postures because they may be beyond the individual’s control. However, there is some help that can be given to ensure that communication efforts are that bit more successful (so that we can emphasize and de-emphasize while communicating appropriately) and I am glad to share them with you.

  1. Try not to sit in the same spot for too long: take intermittent breaks (go for a walk or take a bathroom break). This aids blog circulation and reduces the chances of fatigue
  2. While sitting, try to check that you are engaging your body parts in a correct posture.
  3. Always assume an upright position as this takes a lot of pressure off your back and gives an air of confidence
  4. Try to position your computer in such a way that you do not have to bend awkwardly and uncomfortably to use it.
  5. Ensure that your movements are fluid as a service provider: no one wants to wait on sluggish staff.
  6. Be attentive to your surroundings and ensure that you pay attention to safety signals; accidents can cause irreversible damage that may affect our posture.
  7. Always attend to customers with a smile
  8. Customers: try to approach service staff with a smile; it improves the service experience for you too!
  9. Walk briskly and try not to block entry and exit points
  10. If you have any strain in your body that makes correct posture difficult, try to get medical help
