“Solitude matters and for some people it is the air they breathe.” —Susan Cain


As we continue navigating this new normal of life in a pandemic, one of the areas you need to explore is how the introverts and extroverts in your family are handling this time.

Each side of this personality dynamic handles things very differently. So that we are on the same page, an introvert recharges by being alone; but an extrovert recharges by being with others.

This week we’re going to look at what this time is like for introverts. 

Even though introverts have the luxury of not having to leave the house, they still have a lot of challenges. 

Being stuck at home does not mean you’re still not busy with Zoom calls for work, supporting virtual learners, and managing the household. It does mean that you may be trying to balance your need for space with other family members’ needs for connection. 

You may also find that as an introvert you have way too much time with your own thoughts. Getting stuck inside your own head happens easily. Especially when you don’t have a routine to center you. 

If you are an introvert or you love one, know that this season can bring tremendous connection if you know what you need.

  • Do you need space? Ask for 30 minutes a day to decompress alone; make the time. 
  • If you need to set up a routine, do it. Check out the Miracle Morning.
  • Is the news getting you down? Watch the news together for a short period of time so you can stay current.
