How to Survive as an Introvert, Extrovert during Quarantine

Have you found yourself struggling to interact with others or seeking time with yourself lately? We can definitely blame COVID for these habits. Whether some people were able to rely on work or school for social interaction or others were able to continue their lives in some form of solitude, adjusting to quarantine living has not been easy for anybody. But, have no fear! Here are five tips on how to regulate your extraversion or introversion during these trying times:

  1. Recognize your social needs! It is okay to have different social needs than some of your family or your friends. In order to get the most out of your social interactions (or lack thereof), you have to gain a better understanding of what social needs are required for you to achieve that balance.  [bf_image id="6s8fbq835465pxfbprvrcwq"]

  2. Find small ways to be social, no matter the personality. Instead of focusing on what you may not be able to do in terms of socializing with your friends, family, or coworkers, maximize on what you can do! Don’t be afraid to utilize other means of communication, such as phone calls, Facetime, or Skype.

  3. Exercise is key! This plays a major role in everyday life, but specifically during quarantine life. It can be easy to get stagnant and stay in the house all day. Over time, our physical stagnancy will affect our mental health. Engaging in physical activities such as jogging, going on a walk, and lifting weights keep us moving, present and can drastically reduce depression and other hindering mental ailments.  [bf_image id="s4449rbmq3wsjj2zbtv7jbn"]

  4. Keep up with your meaningful relationships. Fortunately, you are not in this alone! Even your strongest friends need someone to lean on during these trying times. Don’t be afraid to reach out to your loved ones so you can all be there for each other. 

  5. Be patient with yourself. This is a global pandemic that no one could have expected to last as long as it has so far. Everyone is learning to adjust to the best of their abilities. Be kind to yourself while you are adjusting to life during a global pandemic.
