We've all seen them (I've been one of them). The awkward person at the party who pretends to be on their phone instead of having conversation with other guests. Or the guy who talks too much because they feel as if any bit of silence is a death sentence.
Note: This blog is meant to be playful. I understand many people suffer from a serious version of social anxiety.
If you've followed my blog long you know I have a heart for mental struggles. This video was a fun rendition of practical ways to keep cool when things get weird.
Here's the whole list:
1. Bring Some Friends
2. Get Involved in the Activities
3. Help the Host Out
4. Find Common Interest with Other Guests
5. Do Something Spontaneous
6. Remember That it's Not All About You
7. Don't Drink Too Much
8. Know A Good Party Trick
9. Take a Moment to Breath
10. Be Yourself
