Beating Social Anxiety Disorder

Social anxiety disorders (sad) help can come in various forms. Although treatment is available and effective for social anxiety, it is estimated that only 25 percent of people with the disorder ever receive treatment.

While not a substitute for professional treatment, for those that may otherwise receive no help, self-help is a good starting point. The self-help strategies for beating social anxiety disorder outlined below can be used at home to overcome your symptoms.

Social coping

Identifying social skills that could use a bit of work and then focusing on improving them could help cope with the thoughts and emotions that come with social anxiety disorder.

Firmness

Many people with social anxiety disorders do not have assertiveness and can benefit from learning to be more assertive through self-help strategies. Practice becoming more assertive by communicating your needs in a calm and relaxed way that respects the needs of others. 

Nonverbal communication

Improving your nonverbal communication skills is another area where you can use a self-help strategy if you live with social anxiety.

Most people with social anxiety tend to adopt a "closed-off" stance; you may do this without even realizing it. Learning how to have a relaxed posture (e.g. hands at your sides, good eye contact) encourages others to respond positively to you and makes you appear more approachable.

Developing body confidence in this way will help you to become more confident in social interactions.
