Introverts are deeply affected by their surrounding. Noisy, busy environments can wreak havoc on an introvert’s highly reactive nervous system. Likewise, packed schedules and high-pressure situations are overstimulating.
“Sometimes you need to distance yourself and create time alone, just so you can connect with who you truly are and what you want out of life.” – Unknown
Most introverts feel calm spending time in nature.
If you know your children will be in a situation that will frazzle them, create a quiet space where your kids can pause and get comfortable with quiet. They need a quiet space where they decompress afterward.
Make sure you have a quiet place your introvert child can retreat to when he/she needs to get away from noise and people. A place where they can turn on their favorite music to drown out any unpleasant external noise.
“It is better to have less thunder in the mouth and more lightning in the hand.” – Apache, Native American Tribe
Help your child embrace his introvert self. Introverts make incredible leaders and friends. The world could use a little more peace and quiet.
