How to overcome social anxiety
With all the 2020 events, we all want life to be normal again. While we are starting to adjust to the new normal, many of us are not adjusting in a good way. We let go of positive routines and replace them with bad habits and activities.
We engage in fewer rewarding activities, ponder on stresses we can do nothing about, don't see friends frequently, and replace good habits with behaviors that keep us stuck. We are also unconsciously pausing our life and trying to wait this out.
The idea behind BAT is that we have to do happy to feel happy. Instead of our mood changing what we do, we need to change what we do to fix our mood. The first principle of BAT is to change what you do. Engage in the right activities and positive feelings will follow.
We can't wait until we feel better before we act. Emotions perpetuate themselves. We have to move now and break the cycle of our feelings. This is how we grab hold of happiness.
Create a balance between leisure activities and mastery.
Values are ongoing (staying fit). Goals can be achieved (go running today). When you prioritize your values, your goals will not be in conflict with one another.
Goals should be challenging, but possible. Make them specific and measurable. Frame your goals in a positive way that will provide positive reinforcement.
Don't allow your mood to define when you will do something. When we choose in the moment, we often choose badly, especially in stressful times.
Note the results of your actions and revise accordingly. Don't allow your mood to dictate your actions. You came up with the rules. You're telling you what to do.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
