If you get a lethargic, low-energy, foggy feeling maybe you’re suffering from an introvert hangover.
It can be similar to an alcohol hangover, but without the drinking part.
The first thing you need to understand is that you are not alone in this. Many introverts feel the same way and the more social exposure you have had, the worse you will feel. Recognizing and not spending too much time worrying about it are the first steps towards feeling better. But there’s more…
Here are 4 ways to cope when you suffer from a social hangover.
1. Inspire yourself
Watching, reading, or doing something that inspires you will have a relaxing effect on your mind. An uplifting movie, a thought-provoking book, a relaxing walk in nature; these are all things that can get you out of your social hangover.
So, refresh your mind with as many positive and inspirational things as you can.
2. Remember that you still have your momentum
Too much social stimulation can lead to mental overload. You can feel as if you’ve lost control of your ability to cope with your levels of stimulation and you’re losing control of everything.
This is where you need to remind yourself that whenever you feel as if you’re losing control you just need to recharge your batteries and your momentum and energy will return to you with full force.
3. Do something creative
Even if you don’t consider yourself a creative person, you should definitely give it a go when you’re having a social hangover. Draw something, make something with your hands, write down your thoughts in a journal; whatever it is, just create. This will help you to focus and organize your thoughts in a positive way.
Creation is the perfect cure for your nasty social hangover.
No matter if you’re a religious person or not, spending some time on your own to think about a higher power than yourself and the purpose of life can be key to healing and feeding your soul what it needs to recover.
