Self-help manuals are designed to supplement therapy, but theyre also good tools for working on your own, Weeks said. He suggested the Managing Social Anxiety workbook.
If social anxiety is stopping you from doing things you want or need to do, or you havent had much success with self-help, seek professional help. Find a therapist who specializes in anxiety disorders.
Its helpful to engage in deep breathing before an anxiety-provoking social situation, Weeks said. But practice this technique every day. This way it becomes second nature, and you dont hyperfocus on deep breathing and miss an entire conversation, he said.

There is a better life for all people with social anxiety. Without treatment, social anxiety is a torturous and traumatic emotional problem. With effective treatment, its bark is worse than its bite. In fact, people who are unsuccessful are the ones who are not persistent in their therapy and who wont practice simple anti-anxiety strategies at home they are the ones who give up. (This very rarely happens, thankfully).
The Social Anxiety Institute is the only treatment center in the world that specializes solely in the treatment of social anxiety.

Do You Have Any Of These 3 Relationship Problems?

Theres no need to prep like crazy for a meeting. But make sure youre clued in on the basics. Theres nothing worse than getting called on if you dont know whats going on!
I usually make a few bullet points of the key things Id like to say. I can then refer to them if I stall or if I find myself struggling.
I like to get there a good 10 minutes early. This gives me enough time to freshen up, get a drink, and calm down a little. I wouldnt recommend any longer than 10 minutes, though.

As a psychologist and director of the Social Anxiety Institute, I feel privileged because I get to see people making progress against social anxiety every day of the week.
All this means is that we learn new rational ways to deal with and eradicate our anxiety, and we work together in a group with other social anxiety people so that our “behavior” is no longer controlled by our anxieties.
CBT is not difficult, but it does involve getting used to the new methods and techniques, and practicing to reinforce them. This is all that “cognitive” means: learning.

We avoid what frightens us and are frightened by what we avoid. So start to actively put yourself in social situations. In fact, even doing this in your mind as well as for real will help show your unconscious mind that “this is normal”. (See Tip 1)
Socially anxious people focus inwards, on their feelings. Studies have found that people who rate themselves as shy in social settings have much worse recall for external details of the environment because they’ve been looking inward, not outward. So, it makes sense to focus outward more to lower anxiety.

When I was a young, undiagnosed woman with autism, who did not care what other people thought of her, I was happy. I offended people constantly and often had no idea. If I ticked someone off bad enough, then they would blow up at me. I would dismiss them as being an ass or too sensitive. People who could not handle me were kicked out of my life. Burning bridges does not work in the adult world. If you want to get a good job, then you have to learn to play nice and have good manners.

Be willing to experience discomfort. Some things are worth doing even if you’re anxious. You will be amazed at what you can do while still feeling a lot of unpleasant sensations. Sometimes people will notice your anxiety; other times, they won’t. Either way, you’ll feel better about yourself if you go ahead and act–do what you value. Tolerate Uncertainty. This is a tough one. Most people like things to be clear cut–to know where things stand. Unfortunately, life doesn’t always cooperate. You must eventually face the ugly truth that you can’t control everything.
