SOFT鈥檚 instantaneous anxiety-b-gone spell! 

1) pay more attention to your surroundings than your thoughts - visuals and sounds

2) BREATHE! if you stop breathing you WILL panic!

3) dig your heels into the ground. feel your weight.

4) relax. everything will be okay.

5) i know making eye contact is scary but if you can do all of the above and calmly make eye contact i promise it will be more friendly and charming than you expect.

@soft eye contact trick: look at people鈥檚 noses they usually can鈥檛 tell

@soft this sounds like torture to me tbh

@Drew_Peacock yeah, it is at first.

the idea of these steps is to acknowledge anxiety and to work past it by investing attention and energy into the moment and the things you can control, not the things you鈥檙e worrying about.

this is what i do to keep myself from being panicked and erratic in social situations i can鈥檛 avoid. it鈥檚 mostly stuff i read from improveyoursocialskills.com/ to help with social anxiety tbh.
