Olivia Fox Cabane, author of "The Charisma Myth,"
says that not aligning your mind and body can cause a divergence in what we're trying to communicate.
If you're trying to deliver a positive message to someone but aren't in a good mental state, this negativity will appear in your body language. It's part of the "microexpressions" we unintentionally show whenever we interact with somebody.
Cabane states that our facial expressions, voice tones, postures, and other body language components expose our mental state, whether we want it or not, and that's why we should always strive to keep both attuned.
