Train your awkward muscle

Cave syndrome is a new term that is used to indicate that people will have a hard time getting back to their normal lives and normal social interactions after the pandemic,” says professor psychology  Inez Germeys (KU Leuven) . "We are no longer used to all that stimulation. Typical things like small talk, how did that work? Those are things we haven't been working on for a long time."

An awkward feeling in social situations is normal, we all know. But  don't let this scare you. Due to the corona pandemic, we are missing some training. By sharing with others which awkward situations we have experienced, we feel less alone and we can support each other. So talk about it with your friends.

Are you still having a hard time getting back to your social life? Do not hesitate to make an appointment with a Stuvo counselor.
