We all know that one person, that James Bond-ish character, who is just too cool.
That one person in our life who can never be caught unfresh , I mean he/she may be having a bad day but still makes suffering look cool.No one is that perfect but there is someone close enough.
Perception is important in today’s world and we never want to be caught in a weak moment.
So below are a few tips to boost your cool .
No Eating on the road.
I know there’s the appeal of cracking peanuts as you walk, the “snap snap” sound the peanuts make are very satisfying especially when you have juicy gossip to wash it down, But it’s unethical to eat as you go on the road.
We’re always on the move but not only does it make you appear a heathen, you’re also flirting with heartburn and indigestion when you eat on the road.
So, need to eat on the go?. Stop, get a place to sit and have your meal in peace.
This action shows that you’re never in a hurry and that you hold your body in high regard.
You’re already cooler just by following this tip. Somebody should come and carry me down from this table.
Fighting/Arguing in public.
People can be funny, exasperating and different shades of weird.
But on no account should you ever be involved in a shouting match with anyone in public, infact anywhere.Don’t fight with anyone anywhere, period.
Half of Lagos has already lost this battle. Getting your point across is important, not being a pushover is also important , but there are several ways of getting your point across without punching someone or raising your voice.
I know someone who’d state his opinion in the middle of a heated argument and walk away leaving you with vague desires to squeeze his neck.
Yes, he is that cool.
Chewing with your mouth open
Ahann!! …. Please this one can hurt.
Conversation is important especially when there is a very interesting issue to discuss – I mean gist- and you have so much to say but please, please don’t show me the chewed version of what you’re having for lunch.
Take great care to swallow before talking or put off having the conversation until you’re done with your meal.
You can’t go wrong with this tip, know why?, You’d come across as someone who’s carefully considering the words being spoken.
Isn’t that a great way to kill two birds with one stone?.
Arranging clothes in public.
This tip I give with mixed feelings. Why? Because I do it a lot.
Up until recently, I couldn’t go anywhere without adjusting my clothes and it was irritating to me.
Imagine how it looked to other people?. It is not only uncomfortable to you, but it shows your wrong taste in clothes and presents you as nervous and not very put together.
So fix that, get fitting clothes and underwear (seeing people pull their underwear in public is depressing) and you’ll find you’re more confident.
