As you all know, last year I attended quite a lot of ukulele festivals and something I noticed throughout all of them was my social battery running low.
I hear you asking: “Your what?” My social battery aka the energy I have for social encounter. I am not a very social person to begin with. I don’t go out a lot and don’t interact very much. I also have a job that is very demanding and comes with lots of social interaction. So this might be one of the reasons why I keep my private social life pretty low.
Anyway, what I noticed in the last couple of years is my social battery drains a lot faster than it used to and needs a lot more time to recharge. So when I’m at ukulele festivals and have to interact with a lot of people in a very short amount of time, my battery runs dry pretty quickly.
Don’t get me wrong, I totally enjoy the festivals and I have lots of fun, but when everyone keeps on partying after the concerts, my battery is usually dead and I’m having a hard time to interact some more. I need sleep, I need me time, I need to recharge.
I told my lovely friend Prudence about it, and she made this great comic about it:
How about your social battery – is it still full? How do you recharge it? Tell me in the comments about it.
