How To Quiet The Introvert Mind


Do you ever wish your brain had an off switch?

As an introvert, you’re more likely to have a loud mind than a loud mouth. Your brain is always buzzing with ideas, daydreams and whatever else your overly active imagination decides to churn out.

Sometimes, your mind gets stuck in a cycle of worry, and overthinking. You ruminate over all the shoulds that cloud your today, and the what-ifs that weigh heavily on your tomorrow.

Before you know it, you’re feeling guilty about something you did five years ago. Or fearful of what could happen five years from now.

Like so many other introvert attributes, your mind can be a super power or super pain, depending on how you use it.

That’s why this week I got together with introvert author Dr. Arnie Kozak to discuss how to quiet your mind.

During the interview, you’ll learn:

  • How to understand and optimize your introvert brain
  • Dr. Kozak’s QUIET technique for calming your mind in an instant
  • Specific activities for better introvert brain function
  • A simple everyday mindfulness practice to master your thoughts

Who is Dr. Kozak?

Dr. Arnie Kozak is the author of The Awakened Introvert: Practical Mindfulness Skills to Help You Maximize Your Strengths & Thrive in a Loud & Crazy World.

He is a licensed psychologist with 30-years experience in clinical psychology, meditation and yoga. His mentors include several well know meditation masters, such as S. N. Goenka, Larry Rosenberg, Gurumayi Chidvilasananda, and His Holiness the Dalai Lama.





  1. Thank you so much for finally telling me who I REALLY am ( by age 70) ! After reading this website, I find out that I’m not alone. I’ve always been comfy in my own thoughts, in my skin, in my own bedroom, in my drawings and art and photography. I’ve had SUCH a DIFFICULT time adjusting to my husband’s retirement, being home everyday, talking everyday, wanting to go with me every time I walk out the door, needing conversation 14 hours a day. He gets bored, so who does he seek out after doing all the outside yard work, but me! I finally decided to go to work, to “be alone.” I have really come to the conclusion, all I want to do is draw, paint, listen to my music, read novels, go to the library, and be in the company of my grandchildren. They make me really happy! Time to read Dr. Kozak’s book!

    • You’re welcome! So glad you found my site! 🙂
