How to Battle Your Inner Introvert + Get Past Blah Days

You might have read the title of today’s post and been like wait what – isn’t blogging the complete opposite of being an introvert? But the truth is most days, I’d pick staying in with a Lifetime movie over heading out to a social event. (I like to blame this on astrology and my dual Gemini personalities!) In many ways, blogging has helped me overcome my urge to be a homebody. And while there’s absolutely nothing wrong with being an introvert, staying home can sometimes keep me in “a funk” (for lack of better words). I’m sharing a few ways to battle your inner introvert to get past those blah days!

Stay Off Social Media: It really is true, comparison is the thief of joy. It’s easy to scroll through Instagram or Facebook and feel – jealous – especially during the summertime. All your friends and family posting their summer vacation photos while you’re at work. Delicious foodie pics while you’re on a bikini diet. The bloggers you follow posting expensive designer bags outside of your budget. Trust me, I know – it happens to all of us.

Some days, I find myself wanting to avoid scrolling through my feed, although it’s part of my job to be engaging and active on Instagram. Those days I tell myself “it’s okay to only post one time today” although my goal is to post at least twice. Giving yourself a social break is sometimes absolutely necessary for all of us!

Get Off the Couch and Go Outside: Fresh air can make a world of difference. Take a short walk or try working from a coffee shop. Changing scenery always helps me recharge my mind. Getting out of the house to even run a single errand can give you a greater sense of accomplishment. I mean how productive does it feel to cross something off your to-do list, right?

Gather Around Good Company: I should add wine to the end of this header shouldn’t I? Goes without saying that a fun night out or even brunch with the girls is a quick way to get out of your worst days. If you can’t meet up regularly, start a What’s App group or group text with your BFFs to have a constant convo/support group!

Blast Your Favorite Tunes: This literally happened to me yesterday. I let something REALLY get to me, and all of a sudden everything was doom and gloom. I had to drive to New Orleans afterwards which actually turned out to be a good thing – I used that drive to blare my happy music, and it turned out to be an instant mood changer. Better yet, make a playlist specifically for these situations!

Listen to an Inspiring Podcast: When I’m in a career rut or a day where I feel like I’m just not doing “enough” to get ahead, I will turn on a podcast while I work. This is especially important since I work from home and don’t have that coworker interaction that I’d normally use to blow off steam or frustrations. Here are a few of my favorite girl boss podcasts.

Tell Yourself 5 Positive Affirmations: I’m all about the importance of self love and how it affects your disposition. There are no negative thoughts that can’t be driven out by simply counting your blessings. I normally tell myself 3-5 positive things to dispel negativity energy. The more you practice this the better! Try writing three positive things on a sticky note and putting it somewhere noticeable like your computer monitor!

Create a Happy Place For Your Mind: So, I’ve actually gotten back into Pinterest recently, and I rediscovered a board that I had made myself full of inspiring quotes. Reading through each one is like a little voice whispering “you can do it!”  Create something similar for yourself. It can be in the form of a mood board you pin things to or as simple as a Pinterest board.

    Love your suggestions! I’m such an introvert but I always keep up with checking social media, which gives me major FOMO. Staying off it is such a good tip!
