Why Meditation Is The Best Remedy For Shyness & Social Anxiety
The Ultimate Guide To Curing Shyness & Social Anxiety
Are you naturally shy? Do you struggle in social situations? Does a racing mind with excessive worry prevent you from enjoying yourself?
People who are over-introverted are often led to believe that their social anxieties are just a normal part of who they are — something they must learn to accept and live with, but this is not true!
In fact, it is very possible to overcome shyness! You too can feel self-assured and comfortable expressing yourself, while feeling completely at ease in all social situations.
Imagine yourself able to walk into a room full of people, relaxed and full of self-confidence. How much would you enjoy socializing if you were altogether free of social anxiety?
Those who reduce their level of shyness enjoy richer, more meaningful interactions and relationships with others, and now, you can too.
What Is The Very Best Way To Overcome Shyness & Social Anxiety?
Meditation. There are so many ways meditation can help you beat shyness, here are 3:
#1 — Meditation releases “feel good” brain chemicals. Researcher, neuroscientist, and pharmacologist Candance Pert, Section Chief at the National Institution of Health, found that meditation can contribute to the release of endorphins, which give you a “runner’s high” — just making you feel naturally good. When you feel great about yourself, diffusing social awkwardness is super easy.
#2 — Meditation has been proven to boost the "happy feeling" brain region. Brain researcher Dr. Sara Lazar compared the brains of those who had practiced meditation for several years with those who had never practiced. She found that well-experienced meditators had thicker areas in the brain’s "happy" pre-frontal cortex; and were especially thick in the areas known to process positive emotions. When we are happier shyness becomes near impossible.
#3 — Meditation melts the dysfunctional thought patterns that lead to shyness & social anxiety. In order to quickly stop worrying what other people think of you, you must harness the subconscious layers of your mind. Once meditation melts all of the layers of worry, anxiety, depression, and fear clogging up your thought processes (the root of shyness), your new-found mind-mastery, with crystal clear thinking stills the racing thoughts, making shyness a thing of the past.
