✨First of all, you’re not as awkward as you think. . “People who are impaired by high #socialanxiety typically think they are coming across much worse than they really are,” psychology researchers concluded in a 2014 study.” . ✨You can drink, but not too much. . A study published in the journal PLOS One concludes that moderate amounts of alcohol increases brain activity and functional connectivity of healthy social drinkers. It’s important to note, however, that there’s a fine line between moderation and over-intoxication. Heavy drinking has been linked to an increase in your #anxiety, so you want to ensure you’re not making yourself worse in the end. . ✨Get there early so you can leave early. . Devora Zack, a business strategist who wrote Networking for People Who Hate Networking, told Entrepreneur that it can be debilitating and overwhelming for an introvert to walk into a party when there’s already a huge crowd and lots of activity. . ✨In conversations, ask people about their favorite topic: themselves. . Those not riddled with anxiety love to talk about themselves — it’s science, and it’s not only true of the egotistical out there. Studies show that people devote 30 to 40 percent of their daily speech to talk about themselves and their own experiences, and that they get a high amount of joy out of doing so. Conversations will fly by if you give people the opportunity to keep talking about themselves. . ✨Help the host, feel less #anxious! . The pro-social nature of kindness changes the level of anxiety that socially anxious people experienced while interacting with others, and helped them to engage more easily,” researchers say. “It helps to counter feelings of possible rejection and temporary levels of anxiety and distress.” So at your Thanksgiving, volunteer to set the table or let a friend vent to you about her issues. It may be a lot more rewarding and calming than you think. . #mentalhealth#holidays#thanksgiving
