5 Easy Ways to Feel Less Socially Nervous

The advice "just breathe" might sound almost hilariously basic at times (we all breathe, right? ), yet specific forms of breathing can help calm nervous sensations. 

It may seem natural to go toward individuals who are similar to you, but extroverts who are comfortable being in the spotlight and driving the discussion are a safer option

When you're out socialising, having everyone's attention on you might exacerbate nervousness. Instead, prepare some open-ended questions to turn the attention on others

 If you're mingling and having a nice time, you should remain, but setting a time restriction for yourself, say, two hours, may help you relax

Breaks are necessary.So, in some scenarios, such as super-intimate dinner parties or one-on-one meet-ups, this won't work. 

If you're in a group of people, though, sneaking away for a few minutes to recover and collect your thoughts is quite acceptable.
