What Your Walk Says About You

walking-shoes_300Here’s a fun fact: People with quick strides are
more likely to be viewed as busy and productive than those with a more mellow walk… which, if you live or work in a crowded city, can definitely come in handy!

Surprised? Just as your body language sends unconscious cues to those around you, the way you walk can shape people’s opinions of you before you ever open your mouth. A quick pace makes you appear competent and implies that you have somewhere important to be (even if you’re just on your way to grab lunch). Walking with a bounce in your step, on the other hand, makes you appear upbeat and cheerful. Want to be taken seriously? Try walking from heel to toe for a more purposeful stride. (Interestingly, most women land mid-arch, not on their heels.)

While on the subject of walking, try these beautiful walking routes in 10 of the most pedestrian-friendly U.S. cities.

    kind of hard to land on your heel when you’re wearing heels ;)

    Women don’t seem to be taken seriously in the workplace unless they’re wearing heels.

    But it’s more of a fashion statement, infact formals don’t even include heels n how do they increase the efficiency. ?

    Vidya – the heel of your foot not high heels.
