Here is why you should give yourself some “alone time”

Some people will advise you that isolation is the playground of Satan. And although it is true that a lot of time alone with your feelings can make you feel overpowered by worries or sadness, spending small periods of time by yourself frequently is necessary for a better, more cooperative and productive life.

1. Alone Time Helps You Find Your Own Voice.

When you are hanging out with a crowd, be it in your social life or at work, you are likely to go with the flow and listen to their opinion. It is the same either you are part of a political campaign or a sports society. You are part of a group.

You aren’t an individual. When you take a little time out to spend alone, you can discover your own voice. This why some cultures say, “An individual is an intelligent creature, a group isn’t”.

2. Alone Time Lets You Become More Achieved.

Are there things you have needed to get done for some time now, but simply have not had the time since you have been so involved with other people? Spending time alone gives you a great opportunity to catch up on these plans.

Spending time by yourself gives you an opportunity to make a to-do list and go through it at speed. There can be some chores you don’t actually want to finish, but when there is no one nearby to occupy you, you can finish them without interruptions.

3. Life Will Be Simpler.

Life was not expected to be complicated, yet we have all made it like that. Spending some time by yourself will tell you that life can be so simple if we make it so. Life does not have to be experienced at a million miles per hour. Life does not have to be handled as a competition or a race where the man who does the most things wins. And some “alone time” will remind you of these wonderful facts.
