Talk With Your Hands to Improve Clarity

Think about how you talk and act when you're comfortable. Say you’re telling a story at a party. You use your hands naturally. The right gestures add immeasurably to your words. Act the same way when you're in professional situations. Using your hands when you speak will help you feel more confident, think more clearly, more naturally punctuate certain words and phrases, and fall into a much better rhythm. Loosen up and don’t think about your hands. Just let them go. The impact on your words will be dramatic.
