Body Language in Sports


Aristotle said that man is a “social animal” and a “linguistic animal.” This convention is so anchored in our perception that it is hard to believe when psychologists claim that 90% of our communication is not verbal at all.

The meaning of this fact is simple – we communicate and transmit many messages, without uttering a word. Chazal (the old Talmudic sages) said that life and death are in the hands of the tongue, but as soon as we realize that 90% of our communication is nonverbal, we must also be aware of the messages we convey in our nonverbal communication and how they affect those around us.

How do athletes get better?

Players learn to pass, kick, shoot, attack, stop, change direction, close running lines and many other skills. As they improve these skills, they become better and more effective in the game. They improve these skills for two reasons:

Nonverbal communication in sports

If the psychologists are not mistaken and 90% of our communication is indeed nonverbal, why not apply the method of sports improvement even in relation to nonverbal communication? After all, this is a critical skill for the team’s strength, which also affects the field during the game, during timeouts or breaks, in the dressing room and in training. The use of nonverbal communication in the group takes place at each meeting of the team players and throughout the encounter. The responsibility of the players and coaches is also, and perhaps first and foremost, to be aware of themselves and learn to communicate in a positive way.

Negative body language and team composition

I believe (mainly in children and youth departments) that a team must let go of a player, no matter how good he is, if he constantly “poisons” the group atmosphere with a negative body language. I also believe that a coach, no matter how good he is, whose body language regularly expresses negative messages to his players, shouldn’t coach children and teens.

Universal body language

Studies indicate that body language is a universal language that crosses cultures, genders or physical limitations. When a blind-born athlete wins a competition, for example, he raises his hands in the air and looks up – although he has never seen anyone else express the sense of joy in winning this way. When that blind athlete loses, he pulls himself together, drops his shoulders and puts his hands on his face in a gesture of pain. Try to remember how soccer fans respond to the loss of their team – that’s right, everyone responds the same way and “grabs the head” with both hands.

The myth of positive body language

There is a false myth, claiming that only players with a positive body language walk upright, open their shoulders, look straight and express their feelings with sharp, vigorous movements. This body language, claims the myth, expresses a winning attitude and can be seen looking at well-known winners such as Michael Jordan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cristiano Ronaldo. These players are a model indeed. But not for everyone.

Body Language Models

Every person is motivated by different motivations and the difference between people must be respected. Therefore, one must also accept a different body language: less external, but present. This body language expresses peace of mind and focus on action, and is clearly represented by players such as Messi, Iniesta, Nowitzki and Tim Duncan. Does anyone suspects that Messi or Tim Duncan are not Winners? Their teammates have come to know how they express positivity or winning attitude, and so does the audience. There is a wide variety of legitimate positive nonverbal body language expressions, and each player can find what is right for him. What he can’t do any more in modern sports is being unaware of his nonverbal communication, or being aware of his negative nonverbal communication – and sticking to it nonetheless.

Active communication = cohesion

Try once to do the following experiment: Watch a basketball game without sound and pay particular attention to the nonverbal communication of the players. In no time you will notice how the players communicate using physical gestures without words: often you will see a player raise his eyebrows to indicate to his friend that he is ready for a move. A point guard will turn his chest toward the player he wants to give the ball to, half a second before the actual delivery – and thus send him a message to be ready. The chin and eyes also become effective communication tools when the hands hold the ball. Pay attention how the shooting players lifts his thumb in the air to mark his appreciation after a good assist, or the pats on the buttocks. All these examples demonstrate the effectiveness and power of positive nonverbal communication. This kind of communication attests to an understanding between the players and high group cohesion. This good communication can also help an inferior team beat a better team.

The body language of each individual is derived from his or her level of self-awareness, personality, and mental abilities. If you know how hard it is to change physical habits in the game, such as keeping a low body, maintaining stability during delivery, and scanning the area before getting the ball, you will understand how difficult it is to change embodied sub-conscious patterns – body language patterns that we have become accustomed to.

How do you change a negative body language?

When a coach or a player feels that their body language is negative, they must change it. This change will not only improve the atmosphere in training and games but also make the team better. Anyone who can receive support from a psychologist who specializes in communications should do so.

If you are a coach and cannot assign players such an escort, you can still drive a change process based on the following points:

Psychological understanding – Understanding the effect of particular skill on their play creates the motivation to work hard and improve
Physical practice – they work hard and thus improve
Present the importance of team communication at the first training sessions
Learn and diagnose, during the first trainings, the body language of each player in your team
When you summarize the training sessions, also refer to the energy level. Set a score scale for the level of energy that trainings should be conducted in. When the team fails to achieve that index, react decisively.
Find videos of players with a negative body language and players with a positive body language. Show them to your players and analyze the feelings and messages they receive. In the first stage, analyses of a third person are more effective. Find varied examples and try to avoid the classic and familiar, e.g. Michael Jordan and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Develop a mutual language with your players. After they’ll express identification with a player with a positive body language, remind them, during training sessions, how the player behaves or his name
film players who failed to make a change and edit the negative body language expressions to create a short clip. show them the clip in private, and discuss with them their feelings. Sometimes such a reflection would do the trick
Make it clear that they are allowed to feel “fake” at first. That the gap between what they feel and what they express is legitimate. However, what they express is more important because it affects the team
If the player has not been able to get rid of his negative body language, refer him for professional help and take a clear position on this subject

Many Empaths Block Their Abundance

Empaths are people who feel very deeply and are incredibly sensitive souls. They feel pain in the words left unspoken, and the unkind look in someone’s eyes can cut like a knife.

They have a hard time being here in this world, often feeling isolated and abandoned by spirit because the world around them many times does not make sense. in fact it usually contradicts all their intuition is picking up on.

The truth is empaths are human lie detectors, not much gets past an empath… yet they will likely struggle to listen to their intuition or fail to take action on their insights because, ironically, they sometimes do not trust themselves.

Empaths believe we are human beings having a spiritual experience and we are spiritual beings having a human experience. Such movies as: Ghost, Sixth Sense, What The Bleep Do We Know?, City of Angels and others illuminate this belief.

Nurturing the soul is as important as healthy nutrition, exercising and sleep. The soul’s sole purpose is to create spiritual/emotional growth. The sense of well-being and happiness emanates from the soul to the psyche. If the soul is ignored or malnourished the psyche and ultimately the body suffers.

The most effective way to nurture the soul is through spirituality. Spirituality is the God-related science of developing and freeing the God-made innermost being-the core of us-“Made in the image of God.” Love creates, all else destroys. Love cannot co-exist with other premises simultaneously; therefore, God is only love. The fly in the ointment of human existence verses in spiritual form-as God-is the “ego.” The ego is essential to navigate the vicissitudes in physical life. However, the ego is what gets us into trouble. The truth is: All life on earth serves the sole purpose of developing our spirituality to the point of being free of spiritual ignorance, free of selfish or destructive behavioral (ego) patterns, free to return to our eternal home in God. True spirituality leads to freedom in God.

As all souls, empaths incarnated for emotional and spiritual growth, inherent in the human experience there are emotional and spiritual challenges.

When beliefs, thoughts, feelings and behavior are accessed and addressed at the unconscious level, the ’cause’ of any and all symptoms and behavior become crystal clear–it is mental/ emotional, physical, and spiritual trauma/distress manifesting in the behavior and symptoms you experience.

Reasons To Sparingly Use Automation In Daily Life

It is late, and you are hungry. You have spent the last hour and a half in front of the television, watching a fantasy series, and now there is no time to cook. You swiftly reach out to your smartphone, pick a favourite you had last ordered on the food delivery application, pay from your saved credit card for which you only had to memorize the three-digit code, and your doorbell rings in half an hour with a food packet. You dig into your dinner, without having spoken to a single soul in the whole process.

Sounds familiar? Yes, this scenario would have been part of a science-fiction story about five years ago, but today we live and breathe automation in almost every sphere of our lives. It definitely is a boon to get things taken care of so smoothly, but is it always healthy for the mind? Let us find what are the things you are depriving your mind of when you automate practically everything that is possible to automate.

Connect with the society

When you stop automating little things, for example, mobile application-based grocery shopping, or ordering medicine online, you tend to connect more with the people outside your friend zone. Let us take an example where a family member is sick, and you order medicines through a website, a delivery person comes and delivers it, and the whole transaction is carried out without uttering a single word. Instead, if you walk to the neighbourhood pharmacy, you might get an opportunity to enter into a discussion with the pharmacist about the kind of illness, which medicines might be most suitable, and he/she might even be able to recommend a better doctor than you had visited so far. Similar examples could be sought for in scenarios where you visit your local grocery store, your simple local fruit vendor, your electrician and plumber, and also the sleepy person sitting behind the counter at the local cinema. These people add to the diversity of life. You connect more, and effectively share more information, thus broadening your knowledge about different kinds of human persona.

Balance of mind

If you are always dependent on automation, that in turn makes you a person not being able to fix his/her own things. The connect with the life that our ancestors used to lead is broken with automation, and you would be unable to mend the technology if it bails on you some day. If you never take the public transport, for example, and always depend on application-based taxis, in a situation where there are no taxis available or you phone malfunctions, you would be completely lost on the road as you would not know which bus would take you to your destination. Sure, you could always ask around, but instead of getting such kind of quick fixes at the end moment, it is always better to be mentally prepared to face broken technology to avoid unwanted helplessness.


When you are surrounded by automation, you inevitably expose yourself to numerous electronic devices that constantly emit harmful electromagnetic forces (EMFs). These EMFs have been thoroughly researched upon by the medical fraternity and have been found to be responsible for critical and chronic lifestyle diseases. The lesser you expose yourself to these rays, the healthier and longer you live. Aside from their harmful effect on humans, many of these devices largely contribute to the ever-increasing carbon footprint that has emerged as a looming threat to our beloved planet.
