National Body Language Day is approaching!

Blanca Cobb explains how she came up with the National Body Language holiday.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — National Body Language Day is coming up this Friday. We tend to talk about body language on our show frequently. Did you know that I created this holiday? Let’s talk a little about why I did.

People are fascinated by body language and want to know how to read it and use it. I’ve been in the profession since 2010 and have been on national TV shows and quoted in worldwide publications for my body language analyses on celebrities, court cases, pop culture, dating, networking, relationships. There’s been a steady interest in body language over the years. Creating a national holiday for body language is a universal way to highlight the importance of nonverbal communication and help people understand it better.

People are fascinated by body language for various reasons. Reading body language is a silent, covert way to know what someone’s feeling. When interacting with someone, you get to play detective to find out if they love you, like you, trust you. Many people figure that reading body language is a shortcut to someone’s mind and motives.
