Natural Anxiety Tools and Remedies to Start Today

Unfortunately, I’ve been dealing with anxiety for a long time, mostly surrounding worry and fear of the unknown. This indicates excessiveness and a tendency to live in the future, which is pretty standard for my INFJ personality type. Fortunately, there are plenty of easy, free anxiety tools at my disposal. Anxiety can also come in the form of panic, different phobias, social anxiety, or any other form of anxiety that falls somewhere in between, like separation anxiety.

How introverts need to be connected to their music.

Anyone who listens to music has felt an emotional response to a particular song at some point, if not often. Introverts, highly sensitive people, empaths, or anyone internally focused will naturally experience strong emotions to much of the music they listen to.

Tips on going to a blog conference as an #introvert.

12 Things to Add to Your Introvert Bucket List

Introverts: 11 things to add to your bucket list

Awhile back, I wrote an  ironic introvert bucket list, but I’d like to get a little more into stretching our comfort zones with some different things you can add to your bucket list. We like to draw lines in the sand so often, but what we don’t often associate with that line is what we might be missing out on on the other side of it. Beyond keeping me safe and comfortable, my boundaries also provide a convenient and unnecessary crutch for my fears. It’s a giant pile of “what ifs”. What if I say no and I regret it? […]
