Social interaction is hard, but mobile apps aren't! With motivation, instruction, and plenty of ways to practice, you'll be able to overcome shyness right from your phone.
One of the steps toward becoming an independent adult and surviving in society is overcoming your shyness. But it's rarely easy. Most people have a little bit of reserve when it comes to public speaking or even making small-talk, but now you have a secret weapon. With mobile apps that help you practice certain conversations and social situations, you can prepare for anything from a job interview to a water-cooler talk with coworkers or even an interaction on the bus with a stranger. And don't worry. Your phone won't judge your awkward mess-ups, so get those out of the way before talking with real people.
Now, if practicing these conversations doesn't help, a place you can feel safe to start conversing with others is online. With mobile messaging apps, you can find plenty of new friends or random strangers to talk to anonymously or as yourself. If not having a social practice is one of the causes of your shyness, then this might be the best place to start. If you're shy around potential love attractions, you can work on your pickup lines with people that you'll never have to see in person if your lines fall flat.
Furthermore, being social can help you be more productive in a variety of life endeavors. Nearly every workplace requires some level of social interaction, and awkwardness caused by social anxiety can often be seen as rudeness. If you're perceived as rude by other coworkers or potential clients, you might set your career back. Fortunately, mobile apps for social motivation and advice can allow you to focus on specific goals and cues rather than focusing on your discomfort. With a motivational sidekick right in your pocket providing tips and encouragement, you'll be ready to take on the watercooler in no time.
