Many millions of people throughout the world are sufferers of social anxiety. This can involve a fear of crowds or in extreme cases all unknown people in general. This serious condition can cause people to be housebound if not dealt with. However, by following simple steps when feeling especially vulnerable can allow people to overcome social anxiety for good.

  • By gradually familiarising yourself with the local environment it is possible to exceed your boundaries a little every day if you feel you cannot go far. If you feel this is impossible begin simply with the garden gate and go one step further every day until you reach the end of the road and can feel the achievement from this.
  • If you find you do not feel safe in certain situations when surrounded by many people, take a trusted friend or relative with you to allow a feeling of safety. By remembering you are not in this situation alone this can make it easier to deal with, especially if it is a necessity to go somewhere.
  • One of the best ways to overcome social anxiety is increasing your ability to deal with strangers. Simply by saying hello to a neighbour in the street can make the world of difference. Asking a complete stranger the time will only take ten seconds at most yet can improve your confidence greatly. Make a goal of speaking to at least one new person every day.
  • Take up a new class in order to make new friends and gain confidence. It may take a while to build up the initial confidence to attend, but the first week will always be the hardest and you can be assured that it will become easier as time goes on.
