Wondering how you can get out of that rut and manage your social anxiety? Writing down your goals is a great place to start.
Keeping a Journal: Journaling can help with so many areas in your life… social anxiety included. First things first, you have to figure out what is causing your anxiety in the first place. Are you afraid of saying something embarrassing? Are you afraid of being judged? Are you afraid of crowds? You may not know the answer now. And that’s okay! Journaling your thoughts and actions is a great place to start.
Write Down Goals: Now that you better understand your social anxiety, it’s time to start creating SMART goals. Maybe it’s saying hello to a stranger, or signing up for an improv class.
Your mind can only remember so much. What’s great about writing goals down is you can easily keep track of your progress.
Congratulate Yourself: Celebrate all victories. No goal is too small. Don’t be afraid to be your own best friend.
