Overcoming Social Anxiety

Overcoming Social Anxiety

Social anxiety is something that many people deal with, but that doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t be taken seriously. If you’re struggling with social anxiety, know that you’re not alone. In this blog, we’re going to go over some things that you can do to begin overcoming social anxiety and improving your mental health (something we believe strongly in at Avalon Malibu).

It’s important to remember that everyone’s situation is unique. What works for some people won’t work for others, so don’t be afraid to think outside the box and come up with your own strategies.

Dealing With Social Anxiety

Let’s go over some of the things we recommend here at Avalon Malibu when someone is struggling with social anxiety. Are you ready to begin?


Learning various relaxation techniques can be very helpful when you’re feeling stressed in social situations. Learning calming techniques means that you’ll have something to rely on when things get difficult. 

If you think this could be the right route for you, consider thinking about meditation, mindfulness, and intentional breathing. These can be great areas to learn more about and they may even be helpful for you in other areas of your life. Consider starting today!


For some people, low self-esteem contributes to their social anxiety. If this is something that you can identify with, then it may be helpful for you to consider doing some things that could build up your self-esteem. Some people find that therapy can be an extremely helpful way to do this. Speaking of therapy…


Have you considered starting therapy? Therapy can be an incredibly useful tool for people who are dealing with social anxiety. When you work with the right therapist, they’ll be able to help you identify triggers and you can work together to find possible solutions. Starting therapy can be a great first step towards overcoming your social anxiety, so consider if it’s the right path for you.
