solo time

Every day we always have to keep a reminder to do one thing, or take care of another thing! What about the daily reminders to make time for yourself. A lot of times, we forget to take care of the most important in this world…ourselves! Just because you want (or need) solo time doesn’t mean you’re annoyed with the world, it just means you need time to regroup and get your thoughts in order. Check out these 4 reasons why you need solo time, especially when you have a significant other.

Key to Happiness

Sometimes having that alone time is all you need to just enjoy the little things life has to offer. Happiness doesn’t mean spending hundreds of dollars; happiness can be found doing simply nothing. While in a relationship it can take a lot of energy from you. Constantly making sure your work life and romantic life is okay can be hard on a person.

When your cup is empty, take a second have some me time and refuel. Whatever you enjoy doing, do it! If that means hitting the gym solo, taking a walk around your neighborhood, or just reading with your favorite music playing. When you enjoy some alone time it helps you live a healthier happier life.

Become More Creative

When you’re alone, you have more time to let your creative juices flow. When you’re around other people it’s great to hear their thoughts and opinions, but at some point, it’s good to just let your own creativity thrive. It’s been said when you give yourself some alone time, you’re able to tap into your creativeness. It doesn’t matter how creative you may think you are or aren’t, everyone is creative in their own way. Give yourself some alone time and you’ll surprise yourself with the greatest material you’ve ever created. A journal is a great place to start. Just write down whatever comes to your mind.

Helps Clear your Mind

The time that you have alone helps give you a peace of mind, and clear your thoughts. Our brains need time to recharge and one the best ways to do that is to get some time without having anyone around disrupting. Sometimes when your loved one is around, they can be a bit distracting. When you give yourself the opportunity to just relax with your own thoughts, you’re able to think more clearly and make better decisions. There’s no crime in having time for yourself, so take as much time as you need.

Work Ethic becomes stronger

Time is of the essence, so be sure you use it to the best of your ability. It’s rare to get time alone when you have a significant other, so when you do get some alone time, make the most of it. When you’re alone it’s been said your work ethic becomes stronger! Do you remember when you were back in school, and group projects were assigned? Typically, in group projects most of the work is divided amongst the group for individual completion. This is because the work ethic can be stronger alone and then enhanced when brought together.

 

Having time for yourself is essential to enjoying life. Never make comprises to having alone time, whether you’re in a relationship or not. How often do you take time out of the month, week, or day, to just enjoy some peace with yourself? If you haven’t, then you should definitely start scheduling it in!
