There are some people who are so shy and self-conscious that they constantly worry about others view them. The solution to this problem is to become so totally absorbed in what you are doing or thinking about, that you become almost oblivious to the people in your surroundings.
Concern about how others view you often prevents you from concentrating. But if you calmly work on becoming involved in worthwhile pursuits, you will overcome this self-consciousness.
(Rabbi Pliskin's "Gateway to Happiness," p. 291)
