Exercises for Overcoming Shyness The following information and exercises are designed to assist you with overcoming shyness and are taken from the Overcoming Shyness Workshop.
I would recommend that you use them along with the help of a counselor/psychotherapist.
The shy aren’t awkward around everyone; they are tongue-tied around those who seem most unlike them on the basis of a range of surface markers: of age, class, tastes, habits, beliefs, backgrounds or religions.
On contact with a person from another world or ‘province’, the shy allow their minds to be dominated by a forbidding aura of difference.
They may (silently and awkwardly) say to themselves that there is nothing to be done or said because the other is famous while they belong to the province of the obscure; or because the other is very old while their province is firmly that of twenty somethings; or because the other is very clever while their province is that of the non-intellectual; or because the other is from the land of very beautiful girls while they hail from the province of average looking boys.
Your spine would naturally align and your back is straightened. Practice doing this in front of a mirror until it starts to look natural.
Do not cross your arms – The way your body poses tells something about yourself.
About Shyness Shyness is a set of learned behaviors that interfere with relating to people or having successful relationships.
These behaviors can be replaced by more effective behavior and a shy person can learn to relax in social situations.
