Have more fun at holiday parties!
From accentuating your “it” factor to captivating others with conversation “sparkers,” read on to learn how to become the belle of every holiday ball!
Before you arrive at the party, warm up by chatting with a friend—even on the phone—so that you can interact and loosen up your social muscles, encourages Patrick King, author of Improv(e) Your Conversations. “That way, when you’re at the party, you’ll feel more comfortable and ready to show off your wit and humor.” Another great “warm up” trick? “Get a bit silly before the party!” urges Boothman. “Dance in your living room to your favorite tunes or put on a favorite funny movie that always makes you laugh. When you arrive at the party, you’ll be looser and able to smile just thinking about it!”
