Life is a dream

I have got few, simple but very useful information about handshake. We do it daily but we can do better & gives best impression to an interviewer as well business clients.
A good handshake:

o keep the fingers together with the thumb up and open
o slide your hand into the other person's so that each person's web of skin between thumb and forefingers touches the other's
o squeeze firmly.

A proper handshake:

o Is firm but not bone-crushing
o lasts about 3 seconds
o may be "pumped" once or twice from the elbow
o is released after the shake, even if the introduction continues
o includes good eye contact with the other person

Extend a hand when:

o Meeting someone for the first time
o Meeting someone you haven't seen for a while
o Greeting your host(ess)
o Greeting guests
o Saying good-bye to people at a gathering
o Someone else extends a hand

Handshaking Tips:
    • Avoid giving a cold, wet handshake by keeping your drink in the left hand.
    • If your hands tends to be clammy, spray them with anti-perspirant at least once a day
Well, I hope this is very much useful in everyday's life..
