What can you do to help with social anxiety?
“What other people think of me is none of my business."
One. Tell yourself this if your mind starts wandering onto what other people are thinking of perceiving about you. You cannot know what is on there mind.
If someone looks unhappy, it does not mean they are judging you! They are probably thinking about an argument they had with their partner… or even worrying about what other people think of THEM.
If you think about it, it is none of our business to presume to know what others are thinking. Reacting emotionally to imaginary thoughts is a waste of time.
Two. Use your Emotional Stress Release (ESR) points to release anxiety you are feeling about an up-coming social event, meeting or situation. Click here to read more detail of how to use the points.
This way you can rehearse going into the situation and clear the stress at the same time, so that you feel better (even good!) in the real situation.
Three. Ground and Centre your energy right before going into a social situation to feel physically strong and protected in your own good energy. To read more about this click here.
Four. Self love in the form of positive self-talk. Reassure yourself. Tell yourself what you need to here. Big yourself up!
Five. Remind yourself that everyone is more worried about themselves and is living in the perception of their own world.
Create a reality for yourself where you feel safe and loved by yourself, the people in your life and life itself.
