I don’t know what to do with my hands

It may sound cliché, the idea of “I don’t know what to do with my hands” when appearing on camera. Occasionally people can find that their basic multi-functions shut down a bit and don’t what to do to come across natural with their hands or just their body language.

No secret ingredient looking good on camera

Be happy and comfortable in your own skin. Do what comes natural to you, if you find your a hand-talker and love to throw in gestures or you’re the type that puts your hands to the side when talking.

If you are a Hand-Talker

Don’t over do it. Try moving only when you’re trying to make a key point or pointing out facts. Before getting on camera, warm up in front of a mirror with what you plan to say later on until you feel comfortable. Practice makes your better.
