How to Overcome Social Anxiety: 6 Tips You Can Use Now

Do you get stressed in social situations? You might have social anxiety. I want to discuss:

* The definition of social anxiety
* Specific situations that trigger social anxiety
* Common signs and symptoms of social anxiety

Let’s get to the truth about social anxiety and what you can do about it. I want to bust the myths and misinformation.

Social anxiety is when you feel nervous, tense or uncomfortable in social situations because you’re worried other people are judging you. Almost everyone has experienced social anxiety at one point or another. Life is rife with moments of self-consciousness–from job interviews to first dates, we all occasionally feel nervous around other people. But social anxiety becomes a problem when it’s so frequent or intense that it gets in the way of important things in your life. You might not apply for a dream job because it requires an interview, or you might find it hard to be around even family and friends because you’re so worried about what they think of you.

If social anxiety has prevented you from doing the things you want, such as making new friends or going on dates, you’re not alone. Social anxiety is one of the most common mental health conditions in the United States, affecting 15 million adult Americans each year. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, one in eight Americans experience social anxiety during their lifetime (about 30 million).
