Celebrate January 2 as Introvert Day

Happy Introvert Day started in 2008 with an article entitled the same. Then, National Introvert Day came on the scene January 2 2011. It's a perfect place to be on the calendar with all the happenings of the winter holiday season. Either way, this introvert holiday is still in its infancy, as might be a global understanding of what it means to be someone more introverted.

Take a walk outside.

Take a walk outside.

Getting outside for a walk alone, or just a friend not the neighborhood walking group, will be great exercise, lift your spirits and renew your energy. It's not a hike or a marathon. It's just getting in touch with nature.

Reflect, meditate.

Reflect, meditate.
If you weren't able to reflect and plan for the upcoming year with all the partying and celebrating, the day after is time enough. You're building your perfect day, so maybe build some time in for this kind of alone time.

Head to the car.

Head to the car.
Sometimes I'll go to our garage and sit in our favorite car, just to sit it in. No music, maybe crank up the engine with the garage door open, just sit back, eyes closed and enjoy the q-u-i-e-t. You''ll have to trust me on this but it doesn't need to be a Ferrari.

Get ready for your day.

Get ready for your day.

This will be your day so plan to spend it as you want to, at least to the degree you are able to without ticking off your more extroverted family and friends. At least give some people a heads up, "I"m doing nothing today."

Stay home or find a quiet venue.

Stay home or find a quiet venue.

We might like the quiet of our home, or it may be there's a little coffee shop (yes, even Starbucks will fit) you like to hang out at, or maybe the library in your town is open. The key point is, the choice is yours what to do. Most introverts will find more energy in less stimulating places.

Social network your way.

Social network your way.

One reason I love the online venue for communication, is I get to control how much I say, when to say what that is, and to whom I say it. Try telling a friend who just drops by your house to say hello, "I'll answer that question after a few minutes of thinking about it." Right.

Take time to discover your uniqueness.

If you aren't sure what it means to be more introverted maybe you could carve out a few minutes to take an online assessment to discover it. A search on "online introvert assessment" will get you there.
