Here are some tips; Know what your body is saying.   We all send messages with our body language.  How we stand or sit often tells other people exactly how we are feeling – we don’t need to say a word.   If you are nervous, you can get tense and sometimes your posture says “Leave me Alone” or “I’m too busy to speak to you. That isn't what you mean but it can be what others think.  So make sure you know what your body saying!
