Body language is composed of all those messages that people exchange besides words. Single nonverbal signal does not carry complete meaning. Cluster includes gestures, postures, eye contact, clothing style (all of them considered together) 

Congruency between current and past patterns of behavior and harmony between verbal and nonverbal communication helps in communication.
