Unplug From All Sources Of News

Alarmist news and content can be one of the biggest sources of anxiety. Unplugging from it decreases your anxiety and gives you more time to do more positive and beneficial activities.

It’s important to be informed of noteworthy events but you can do that without making it a part of a routine. Block or avoid bad content whenever you can.

Experiencing social anxiety on social media

Social media has many good qualities but is also fraught with challenges for people who are socially anxious. They may feel as self-conscious as they would face to face. They may think that they don't have anything to say, that they come across as boring, or that people may think they're stupid.

These fears affect how people behave, causing them to hold back and hide their true selves. In turn, it makes them feel even more boring or quiet, making them share even less about themselves.

Introversion and social anxiety are separate

Introversion is how you’re wired, whereas social anxiety is something that is holding you back due to fear instead of a choice you're making.

Non-anxious introverts are very happy to leave a party early, but people with social anxiety often leave because they feel so worried and want relief.

When you first try to make exercise a daily habit, chances are, your body won’t be used to that kind of stress. 

The key: only do 20 minutes in the beginning, and do it nice and easy. Nothing hard. Even 10-15 minutes is fine at first if you’re just starting out.
