Showing emotion under the mask is the common difficulty under the new normal of Covid-19
Under the new normal after Covid-19 outbreak, it is not easy to show our emotion under the thin face mask.
For a private tour guide, showing a professional smile to clients all the time is extremely important.
So Frank the tour guide reads the post of the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) to find out the 5 ways to show emotion under the face mask.
Frank shares the post here and comments on the 5 solutions.
Frank is now ready to show his professional smile under the mask during his private car tour service.
Just wait for travelers to come to Hong Kong after Covid-19!
5 ways to show emotion when wearing a mask
(1)Name your emotions (Frank’s comment: This is the most important back-to-basics solution. What do you feel? You name it by your voice. I feel hot. Then Frank the tour guide turns up the AC in the car for you. I feel happy. Then Frank knows he has done a good job!)
(2)Use body language (Frank’s comment: Some experts told people to avoid too much hand gesture during conversation in the past. Under the new normal and mask era, we should have more hand gestures, thumbs up, virtual hugs etc., to support what we say under the mask)
(3)Use untapped resources (Frank’s comment: Under the mask era, body parts, which people can see clearly, shoulders, eyebrows etc., become very useful during conversation. Also something we may not want to have so early in life, e.g smile line wrinkles, can show we are smiling to others.)
(4)Smile under your mask (Frank’s comment: Keep smiling can help you to keep a positive mind. Actually if people see the raise of our cheeks and a little lift below our eyes plus our laughter, others know we are smiling. We may also use the reusable masks with a smile already printed on the surface to make everyone happy!)
(5)Focus on articulation (Frank’s comment: It is not enough to just give voice to our sentiments. People may misunderstand as they cannot see our lips. We need to speak very clearly and articulate what we want and feel.)
