How to Start the Year 2020 with Confidence in Your Social Life

 You might be wondering why your friends seem to be more approachable than you are. Human beings naturally gravitate toward people with warmer personalities and steer clear of quiet and reserved persons. Your outward mannerisms and attitude may have an impact on your social life. If expanding your social life is on your list of new year resolutions, below are a few things you can do to improve your sociability.

 1. Smile to Everyone

The key to being more approachable is your facial expression. It's what loosens up everyone for a conversation. Gloomy looks sometimes can seem to indicate a lack of confidence. If you’re having an issue that’s making you not smile, find a solution. 

If you have an issue with your teeth, there are ways to fix it. According to this dentist in Pennant Hills, bad teeth can make someone lose confidence and avoid interacting with others. Talk to your dentist about the options you have to get your smile back. 

Perhaps your mental state is preventing you from feeling happy. Most psychiatrists recommend that less jovial people could see therapists to iron out any physiological issues they may be encountering. Self-care and tending to your mental health help to avoid escalating the situation to depression. 

2. Learn How to Socialize without Social Media

There are a lot of merits that have come with technology and social media. However, there are some adverse effects that you cannot overlook. 

Back in the day, one had to give thought to almost every aspect of socializing with different people. Social media has nearly eradicated the need for physical, social skills. These skills were once quite easy to learn without the help of personality coaches. The way you would walk up to a group of people, excuse yourself, express yourself, and finally leave is not the same anymore. 

One-on-one interactions train people to have valuable in-person social skills. And the best way to learn is by practicing. It's essential to know how to socialize without using technology. Business meetings, major social events, birthdays, and school all require you to talk to people who aren't on a screen. Be ready! 

3. Break the Ice

If you're in an awkward setting, the people around you are probably having thoughts similar to yours. Take a risk and remark about something in general - a new TV series, an upcoming party, that aroma that everyone can smell, or maybe about the weather. 

The point here is to show a sign that you are free to talk to people. Your targets will most likely respond with a warm conversation. For instance, when approaching the lifts and someone holds the door for you, compliment their act with a remark of gratitude or lightly poke fun at yourself about being late for work. 

4. Compliment People

Compliments make people more confident about themselves. You can call attention to a skill they possess, their preferences, OR anything that the person seems to take hold in high regard. 

For instance, most salespersons compliment their client’s preferences despite any conflicting opinions they have. The strategy charges up their self-esteem and builds excellent interactions. Even if the client discovers the disadvantages of the product, they will be glad to air their concerns in a polite way. 

Final Thoughts

You need to come out of your shell to build a more productive social life. Confidence comes from confronting your fears. 

In case you find yourself trapped in circumstances that manifest your weaknesses, try to focus on something that boosts your confidence. Fill your mind with thoughts of this task until you regain your mental balance and self-esteem to be the life of the party in any social setting.
