Tips For The Introvert Brain
If you’re an introvert, it can be tricky to navigate the world of social interaction. You might feel like you’re not good at making friends, or that your conversations don’t flow smoothly. But as an introvert brain expert, I want to reassure you: Your brain is beautiful and amazing! In fact, there are some simple ways that you can improve your communication style with others. This way, you don’t feel like such an oddity in any social setting. Here are the top tips for the introvert brain:
1. Set aside a ‘no people’ time.
- Set aside a ‘no people’ time.
- Make sure you have a place where you can go, undisturbed, where there are no interruptions and where things can be done that require your full attention.
- Examples of places include: your bedroom or study; the laundry room; an empty classroom with a door closed (or even better—the roof). The possibilities are endless!
2. For those who want to make more friends, the ideal number is ONE new friend a year
You can’t force yourself to make friends.
You need to be selective about whom you want to be friends with. It is better if those people are close and loyal ones.
It’s not that you have fewer options when it comes to finding new friends; it’s just that the quality of your relationships will be better if there aren’t too many casual connections cluttering up your life.
3. The ideal place to meet an acquaintance is at a place you both like and want to spend time in
This is a great tip for meeting new people, because when you go to places that have something in common with the person you’re trying to meet, it’s much easier for them to get comfortable with each other. For example, if your friend likes coffee shops and you love nature hikes together, then maybe together they can go on a hike. Then when they see each other again (or even later), they’ll feel more inclined to talk about what happened during their hike or even hang out again in the same place!
The best part about this method is that no matter where YOU live or work—you can still make friends! Just find somewhere where there are lots of other people who enjoy doing what YOU like doing. If nothing else works then try asking around at work: maybe someone knows someone else who might know another person who would really enjoy hanging out with someone like yourself!
4. If you’re looking to take a break from someone, tell them when they can reach you again
The best way to ask someone if they can reach you again is by letting them know when they can reach you again. This doesn’t mean that you should be rude, but rather that it’s a courtesy and respect thing. If someone asks for space and then needs more time than expected, it’s okay to say: “I’ll call/text/email when I’m ready.”
If this person is close enough in your life where they are perceived as a potential threat or risk, then perhaps it would be better for them not to know where exactly all of these boundaries are set up around their lives—and also avoid potentially making things worse by telling them before asking permission first!
5. Do check on people or call them if they’ve gone silent
You can’t control what other people think about you, but it’s important to remember that you are the only person who knows your true worth.
If someone needs to talk or reach out and ask for help, give them time and space. Don’t worry about how they’ll react; there are plenty of great introverts out there who will appreciate your kindness and understanding.
6. Get your alone time but also get your people time in, too.
Getting your alone time is a must for the introvert brain. But so is getting some of your people time in, too.
You can do this by being kind to yourself and taking care of yourself physically, mentally and emotionally. You don’t need to be afraid of asking for help when you really need it—in fact, it’s one of those things that we all secretly wish we could do more often!
Also keep in mind that if someone is offering their services free-of-charge or at an affordable price (like us!), then take advantage of them because they’re doing it out of kindness; so don’t feel like you owe anything back!
Be kind to yourself
Be kind to yourself.
You’re an introvert, and that means you need a little more time than other people do to recharge your batteries. Give yourself permission to be alone for a while, even if it feels like you’re missing out on something important or fun—you can always catch up later!
Be gentle with yourself when things get tough or stressful in your life (like at work). If something is difficult for you, ask someone else for help; don’t beat yourself up over it. The world isn’t perfect! There will always be times when we have no choice but to put our heads down and take the pressure personally instead of delegating tasks onto others so they can handle things properly themselves instead of making mistakes which could cause harm towards themselves
The key takeaway here is that if you’re an introvert, try to remember that it’s okay to be yourself. Don’t force yourself into situations that are too much for your brain to handle. Instead, find a balance between being social and getting alone time when needed!
