What Does Your Body Language Say About You?

peaceWhat does your body language say about you? It’s apart of who we are, it’s what we do without even thinking. “Body language is a kind of nonverbal communication, where thoughts, intentions, or feelings are expressed by physical behaviors, such as facial expressions, body posture, gestures, eye movement, touch and the use of space.”  The common phrase i’m sure we have all heard, ” It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it.” This is a legit factor of life that can really be a great part of you, or your downfall. We all need to be more aware of how we take in information and express emotion. You can master your body language and get control over this department of unspoken emotion. Lets break down this non-verbal communication and analyze the components in detail.

Anger– Occurs when expectations are not met or goals are not obtained.

  • Neck/Face flushed red
  • Threats
    • Eye gazing for long periods of time or frowning of the face
    • Clenched fist or squints

Fear/Anxiety/Nervousness – Occurs when basic needs are compromised or challenged.

  • Fidgeting
  • Not making eye contact
  • Errors in speech
  • Sweating
  • Tension in muscles

Sadness- Occurs when the opposite of happy is presented, usually a sudden depressive state.

  • Looking down or away from others
  • Drooping of the body

Embarrassment- Occurs from transgression of values or personal guilt.

  • False smiling or grimacing
  • Flushed cheeks

Surprised -Occurs when the unexpected is presented.

  • Raised eyebrows
  • Widened Eyes
  • Open mouth

Happiness- Occurs when goals are achieved or needs are fulfilled.

  • Smiling
  • Open hands and arms
  • Smiling of the eyes

So now that we have an idea of whats going on with our gestures, let’s make a conscious decision to be more aware of our non verbal communication. Everyone has to start somewhere, this step doesn’t require words, just effort.

How To Stop Absorbing Other People’s Emotions

angryemotionHere at Hopoffthis.Com we wanna give you guys some tips on how to stop absorbing other people’s emotions. Emotions can control a lot of things, like judgement and decision-making. Do you know if you’re one of the people who soak it all up?

According to themindunleashed.org, “Emotions such as fear, anger, frustration, and immobility are energies. And you can potentially ‘catch’ these energies from people without realizing it. If you tend to be an emotional sponge, it’s vital to know how to avoid taking on an individual’s negative emotions, or even how to deflect the free-floating negatives in crowds.”

Here are a few that stuck out the most:

1. Identify when you’re susceptible to other people’s emotions:

  • Being alone is the only way your can recharge your energy
  • Your careful about opening yourself to others because loss of communication feels like loss of self
  • Your feelings are hurt very easily
  • You tend to always need a way out just in case your feel uncomfortable, such as leaving early in your car from events or commitments.

2. Discover the source:

  • Ask yourself, are you feelings your own emotions or someone elses?
  • You tend to soak up energy from the enviroment or people you’ve come in contact with. Close proximity to people with negative energy can cause energy fields to overlap.

3. Make effort to distance yourself from the source:

  • Take time to feel the energy around you, what do you feel?
  • Are you comfortable in your space? If not take few feet from the negative energy and see if you feel better
  • Don’t hesitate to change seats with individuals if you feel negative energy in a public place

4. Shield yourself from negative energy:

  • Visualize a space of bright light protecting your energy
  • Think about positive things in your life that have been created
  • Look for positive people and positive energy to uplift your spirits

5. Manage your emotions with care:

  • Turn your curse of collecting negative emotions into a positive, practice setting yourself free
  • Be aware of people who have the energy to bring you down
  • Deal with others from a distance until you manage to control what energy you allow into your space

6. Create a personal space for yourself that allows emotional disengagement from the world:

  • Have an open area that allows you to collect yourself along with your thoughts
  • Enjoy time alone, think about ways to better yourself instead of looking at it as being alone
  • Practice something soothing, like reading, writing, resting and yoga

I hope these steps allow your to center yourself and stop absorbing emotions from other people. Learn to have control over your body and everything that makes you happy or sad. It is important to be in touch with yourself so you can live your life full of health and happiness.

Eccentric Danny

Hopoffthis.Com got the opportunity to interview Detroit’s own Eccentric Danny, one of the hottest artist in the city! Talk about art that will blow your mind, this man has a creative passion for colors, textures and an all around vision that he wants the world to understand. Daniel Geanes also knows as Eccentric Danny of simply ” Danny” has impressed the art world beyond belief.
 “I realized I had a passion for art I want to say back in early 2012, when I was doing random designs and talking to Adidas via email and twitter. I believe God gives everybody a purpose in life and its our obligation to find what it is. I believe I’ve been gifted to reach out to people through my art but my main purpose is to help others and I’ll use my gift as a bridge to do just that.”
Now speaking of his artwork, Hopoffthis.Com wanted to know the detail about his most proud piece and the response was incredibly inspiring,eccentricdanny “I have a great deal of love for every art piece I’ve done so it is hard to say what my most proud piece is.  One that does stick out to me is this piece where I have this character I created standing at attention fully naked showing vulnerability with her head held high with destruction all around her because it has so much meaning to it. You can look at it and see so much from the picture and I love that. I try to show emotion in my characters faces and body posture no matter if its abstract or representational.”
If anyone celebrity  in the world could personally request you to do a piece art, who would you want it to be and why?
“I love how Swizz Beatz is a huge art head so I would love to do a request from him but my biggest inspiration is still Dwayne (Lil’ Wayne) Carter. I love how his methods are and how he carried himself in the past and still does. If he wants something he goes out and does it and doesn’t look back. He’s very versatile and is always trying to better himself. I remember he said the studio and music is his life to others that is their JOB! I believe that the main reason celebrities go “crazy” or suicidal is because they cross that path where they are not doing what they are passionate about for the love but they are rather now doing it for their fans and/or to stay relevant which brings stress and turns it into a job.”
 Who is your support system and what keeps you going?
“My biggest support system I would say has to be my G4E comrades and the people of Enjoy Detroit! I love all my fans and believers to the fullest. God and the people around me is what keeps me going. I am a very spiritual person and believe nothing is possible without God. I cannot say that my haters are my motivators because I never pay mind to people who hate because I’m so busy thanking God, working, and paying attention to those that love.”
 Can you tell me about your affiliation with G4E?
“Far as my affiliation with G4E let me start off with its meaning. G4E stands for Grind For Everything and is a group for those who feel they should make efforts to change their life rather than sitting at home playing the lottery, doing credit card scams, or just plain settling for less. I am a visual artist in the group and two of the other main members are rappers LouiseMaC and Grizzy.”
After speaking with Danny, he really wanted to make sure his supports and fans know how much he appreciates their support, “
“I would love to say thanks to Adidas, Enjoy Detroit, Mook, Dave, Josh, Dennis, Kelvin (LouiseMac), Ant (Grizzy), Caprina the owner of Stoning Sensations, MelodiAmore, the Loud Brand family, DJBJ, RJ Lamont, RedWingWhiteBoi, MUA Chrissy Ashtonn and LAN of LSD everyone that I featured in an art piece, everyone that bought an art piece, everyone that ACKNOWLEDGED my art… You are all appreciated! I believe I can change hearts and show people what faith and hard work entails and what can come from it. I am not sin-free but i am a product of faith and just like the bible we all have our own testimonies.”
 
I hope you guys have a new appreciation for art! Hopoffthis.Com supports Eccentric Danny 100 percent.  Make sure you check him out:

They have created a street fashion brand that not only appeals to every subculture but allows a creative concept to identify with no matter what your lifestyle or interest may be.
