Social Anxiety

Perhaps you've had this experience when walking into a party or social gathering: you immediately feel out of place, awkward, and/or really nervous. For some, these situations always feel like they are being judged and that they don't 100% belong there. These situations can really cause insecurity and uncertainty to bubble.
If you can relate to this experience, then you likely suffer from Social Anxiety. When experiencing social anxiety, our body experiences a stress response and typically reacts by releasing certain chemicals into the system, usually recognizable as what we know as 'fight-or-flight mode' or survival mode. In this survival mode, your adrenaline hormone spikes and the heart starts to pump blood with greater force. This can lead to common social anxiety symptoms like dry mouth, shaking and trembling, excessive sweating, and a general feeling of dread.
The articles here are all about Social Anxiety, why we get social anxiety in the first place and common remedies for social anxiety like Valerian Root, Nootropics and of course PerformZen.
