    I often find myself holding one arm while talking to some people, also how can I stand around girls whom I have never spoken to to appear not awkward :dontknow:

    I understand that you have to stand straight, be open ,and I do keep this in mind but I often end up just feeling not 100% confident. So weird I am confident ,but not when my mouth is shut.

    Any body language hacks?

    When I am explaining something like educational I like to get my hands in the air, and do random stuff which is kinda cool, and I know what you mean about being fidgety. I sometimes fidget with my pen in class when the teacher is talking :/

    i get what you mean overall though, when I talk to people I always do something with my hands sometimes fiddle with my tie or, like what you do- put one hand on your opposite elbow. but generally I just keep my hands in my pockets in a chilled out informal manner
