How to Accept Being Shy
Sadly, in our society, being shy and quiet sometimes feels like a personality trait that a person has to "put up with", instead of a characteristic to enjoy or even celebrate. The word "shy" has many meanings and it can range from mild to crippling. This article deals with shyness in the mild social awkwardness sense.
1. Remember that attitudes toward quietness are cultural. In some parts of the world, the most popular children are the most reserved and sensitive, while in North America, the most assertive, loud children are the most popular. (This has been studied and documented.) In other parts of the world, your personality would be envied.
2. While loud, extroverted, "rowdy" types may get the most initial attention, that sort of personality sometimes gets tiresome. It's enjoyable to get to know someone slowly, which is often how quiet people proceed. Haven't you noticed that when a person "holds something in reserve", other people find it attractive? Quiet people can project a sense of self-possession and an inner centeredness that more extroverted people don't have. In other words, quiet people can be very appealing in our culture too, as long as the the quiet person values him/herself.
3. Many writers, philosophers, and other fascinating people are quiet or reserved. Quietness and sensitivity are often associated with complex thinking and creativity.
4. Enjoy being someone who can tolerate being alone for a few hours or days. Some extroverted people can't stand to be alone, while you would handle it well. Quiet people are often very resourceful and self-reliant. Extroverts sometimes fall apart without others around.
5. Remember that in a sea of talkers, you're unique. You can listen. Once you display this trait, people will love it.
6. Know your own strengths. Do you write better than you talk? Does your quiet watchfulness make you more observant or insightful than those who never stop talking long enough to notice? Have you mastered a solitary art, craft, skill, trade, game or hobby? Shyness need not mean weakness, and it need not preclude self-confidence.
7. Seek out other quiet people to spend time with. If you find yourself a wallflower at an event or gathering, see who else is pinned to his or her seat. There are others in the world who prefer their conversation paced more like chess than basketball. There are others who would prefer a companion to sit with quietly and perhaps read. You may very well establish a relationship with such a person that goes well beyond what the extroverts of the world usually experience by making small talk with everyone in the room.

Vuvu Mayongo who joined us to speak about the annual five day Robben Island Spring School. This year’s theme is Robben Island the university. Every year kids from around the country come to discuss, inspire be inspired and most importantly implement what was taught back into their communities.

We then spoke to Dr Julia Goedecke of the University of Cape Town’s Exercise Science and Sports Medicine unit. She joined us to discuss the outcome of a free information session, which was hosted by the Sports Science Institute of South Africa yesterday evening. The info session evaluated the various claims made in the article posted by Time Magazine on why exercise won’t make you thin. They presented the current knowledge regarding weight loss, using exercise and diet. Basically the article is null and void. Dr Goedecke went on to say that exercise has to be accompanied by a good eating plan and most importantly people should not put too much emphasis on weight loss and more on being healthy.
