If you are intending to mix, then make sure that your right hand is empty, if you are holding something in your right hand, then change it to the opposite hand. While shaking hands, keep in mind that your hand should not be dirty or sticky. For example, if you are holding a drink in your right hand at a party, then take care that it does not make your hand cold or sticky. Also keep in mind that both hands should be visible while shaking hands. Don’t have your other hand in your pocket. A person should stand while shaking hands, keep in mind that if you are sitting then stand up before shaking hands. While shaking hands, you should also meet the person in front of you. Apart from this, there should also be a smile on the face. However, it should be a simple smile, not a bright smile. This can make you appear impatient. At the same time, the eyes should meet in such a way or for so long that you can recognize the color of the person’s eyes. During this your head should be straight. Means your body should be similar to the body of the person in front. As soon as you move your straight hand forward to shake hands, your leg should also move forward i.e. your straight leg should be 2 inches ahead of the opposite leg and knees should be slightly bent. While extending your hand, your palm should be straight, thumb should be raised upwards and fingers should be straight. Your fingers should not be bent and the thumb should be on the splash side. Keep in mind that the palm should not be towards the ceiling, it can tell your dominant nature. Apart from this, the palm should not be towards the ground, it indicates your humility. Do not leave the hand while shaking hands until your palm does not completely touch the palm of the person in front. While shaking hands, it is also necessary to shake the hand, but for this keep in mind that shake the hand in such a way that the hand moves up to the elbow.
