10 Ways You Can Use Social Anxiety Quotes
Inspirational quotes for anxiety sufferers come in various forms. At their core, inspirational social anxiety quotes reflect a belief that something better exists for you in the future, despite how you are feeling in the present.
If you can hold on long enough, and not get too caught up in the storm, there are better times waiting for you tomorrow. Try to remember that.
Social anxiety quotes can be helpful to let you know you’re not alone. Social anxiety quotes can also show you a new way of looking at things or suggest coping strategies you might not have thought of before.
How to Make Use of Social Anxiety Quotes
Wondering how social anxiety quotes can help you in your daily life? Below are some tips on what you can do with your favorite social anxiety quotes.
1. Keep a journal of your favorite quotes.
You could write down quotes that you see online or elsewhere throughout the notebook, or use it as a journal with quotes sprinkled throughout. You could also purchase a journal that already contains inspirational quotes to guide your writing.
2. Frame printable art that features uplifting quotes.
Another simple way to include more quotes in your life is to print and frame quotes to hang on your wall. Choose quotes that speak to you or make you feel inspired, then have them printed out at your local Staples or Kinkos store. It’s a super cheap form of art, that you can easily change out if your tastes change in the future.
If you’d like some printable quotes art, you can download one for free from my resource library! If you haven’t already, all you need to do is sign up here for my newsletter, and you’ll be sent instructions with a password to access the resource library.
The library includes other goodies such as a gratitude journal, CBT workbook, and coloring pages that you won’t want to miss.
3. Get a tattoo of an inspiring quote.
Yikes, does this sound scary? Only go for a tattoo if you’ve found one that really speaks to you and that you think you can live with for most of your life. Tattoos can be great conversation pieces, so don’t underestimate the value of having a tattoo for making new friends and standing out in a crowd. I know you don’t want to do that, but every time you push yourself a little, you will get that much stronger.
4. Use a Silhouette machine to create quote signs.
What’s a Silhouette machine, you ask? It’s a machine that cuts vinyl for you. Strangely enough, I hadn’t heard of this device until about a year ago, even though my dad has a vinyl sign business and uses the commercial-sized version of this machine every day. The Silhouette is similar to the Cricut, if you’ve heard of that. If you are crafty or hope to become crafty in the future, this machine can greatly expand your repertoire.
5. Write quotes on post-it notes and stick them places around your house.
I love this idea the most! It’s super simple to write quotes and post them around your place. You could even stick them up somewhere at work to get you through the day when you are dragging. Your bathroom mirror is also a good spot to start your day right when you expect everything to go wrong.
6. Make your own greeting cards with your favorite quotes.
Again.. you might not be crafty now but if you eventually get to it, you could put inspirational quotes on greeting cards to give to your loved ones. Choose quotes that you think other people will like or that remind you of something they have overcome.
7. Have a mug created with your favorite quote.
You can even do this yourself following tutorials by Jennifer Maker. Choose your favorite short inspirational quote and put it on a mug to start your day on the right foot. Watch in the video tutorial below as Jennifer describes how to do this.
8. Memorize favorite quotes to use in speeches or in conversation.
Are you giving a speech in the future? Memorize an inspirational quote that will add some depth to what you say. Choose one that reflects your deepest values and you won’t have any trouble remembering it.
9. Have a favorite quote printed on a decorative pillow.
Lots of Etsy sellers will print a quote on a pillow for you. Remind yourself every day how far you have come by propping up the pillow to be the first thing you see each morning.
10. Write an inspirational quote on a rock and leave it for someone to find.
This one is the most fun because it’s not all about you. Take a sharpie and go on a scavenger hunt. Find a nice big round stone, write your favorite inspirational quote on it, and then leave it somewhere for someone to find. You’ve just brightened someone’s day! And that’s what it’s all about in the end.
