2. Write journals
Starting with journaling is an excellent strategy for introverts to express their emotions and focus on the positive aspects of life. Gratitude journaling has several mental health benefits and can help introverts with stress management.
3. Develop a positive mindset
“Negative thoughts can increase your experience of stress,” writes Elizabeth. Thinking positively and being optimistic in life can help introverts look at challenges in a positive way. She adds “If you are an introvert, you can give yourself an advantage in stress management and in life by actively building your tendency toward optimism.”
4. Practice self-compassion
Introverts are often judged and misunderstood unfairly. This is why it is important that introverts embrace and accept who they are. Self compassion allows us to show ourselves the kindness we deserve. “Being gentle with yourself as well as with others, and building compassion with practices like the loving-kindness meditation can really help,” adds Elizabeth.
