I thought this month I’d share some ideas on how you can work on your social anxiety on each of the special dates in November. Here are some ideas:
World Kindness Day
What better thing could there be than a day dedicated to being kind? Some ways to challenge your social anxiety on this day would be to
- give a stranger a compliment
- send a message to someone you’ve lost touch with
- do a random act of kindness to brighten someone’s day
On my birthday one year, I decided to do as many acts of kindness as matched my age. Some of the things I did included
- leaving change by a public telephone
- paying for someone behind me in line
- buying flowers from a roadside stand
Research shows that being kind to others actually can help to reduce your social anxiety, so this is never a bad thing to practice.
National Hiking Day
On National Hiking Day, you could go for a hike to improve your mood and get outside in the fresh air (and get some exercise). If you want to challenge your social anxiety, go somewhere that there are likely to be other hikers or invite a friend or neighbor to go with you.
International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day
On International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day, you could be aware of posts on social media and share as appropriate if this day is personally relevant for you. If you don’t have a personal connection, you could still share with an offer to listen and help any family or friends who are struggling.
Daylight Savings Day
This is one of my favorite days of the year! If you struggle at all with sleep issues, depression, seasonal affective disorder, or just getting up in the morning, Daylight Savings Day (if you have it where you live) is an amazing day to get a fresh start.
I tend to use this day to reboot my mornings and try to get our household onto a more organized morning schedule that gets us out the door when we need to.
Veterans Day/Remembrance Day
In Canada, we recognize Remembrance Day (Veterans Day in the United States) by wearing poppies, observing a moment of silence at 11 am on November 11th to remember members of the armed forces who died in the line of duty.
As this is a statutory holiday in many countries, you may not be at work or school on this day. It’s a good day to focus on being thankful for what you have, and perhaps even to start a gratitude journal.
Thanksgiving (United States)
In Canada, we celebrate Thanksgiving in October, but I know most readers of this site are in the United States and you celebrate it in November.
Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that traditionally you spend with family, so it can be hard if you find yourself alone. In this post about being alone on Thanksgiving, I share tips on how to get through the day alone.
Black Friday is the name given to the Friday following Thanksgiving in the United States and it’s thought of as the start of the holiday shopping season. How can you improve your mental health this day?
I’d suggest following social media and getting on the email list of mental health blogs and sites you follow because they are bound to offer you some sort of discount on their products on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. It’s also a good day to look for sales on mental health products in general. I know I’ll be keeping my eyes open for them.
