Many people view alone time as the best thing ever. But you? You view it as a fate worse than death. Instead of relaxing and enjoying spending time by yourself , you pass the hours pacing your apartment, or wondering what the heck to do with yourself. It's not an ideal reaction, but it is a totally normal one. Not to mention, it's always a tad unnerving to see what the ol' brain will cook up once it's sans distractions.
In fact, that latter point is a big reason why so many people hate the idea of spending time all by their lonesome. If that's the case for you, it could definitely explain why it feels so wrong to spend an evening at home , or to go a few hours without checking your phone. But, even though it's kinda painful, that's even more of a reason to practice being with yourself. Below are some tips for successfully doing just that, and actually enjoying it. If the thought of spending time alone makes your blood run cold, then start off slowly. And hey — you might even find it enjoyable.
Yes, it feels pretty great to get constant texts, and to have constant plans. Could it be you don't know how to give yourself validation? If that's the case, try spending time alone — without your phone, tablet, or laptop — and really tune into yourself , according to Gabrielle Garrett on TinyBuddha. You'll soon realize you don't really need anybody else but yourself. If that's your problem, then snag new some hobbies, ASAP. Use the silence to read, or paint, or knit. Or take advantage of an empty apartment and marathon some movies, or learn how to cook.
This is your time to try new things, without any distractions. If you've made the commitment to spend some with yourself, then make a point to leave your phone out of it. Checking it not only defeats the purpose of alone time, but you'll likely eye a status update that makes you feel lonely and left out. Save yourself the pain or feelings of FOMO, and tuck your phone out of sight. I used to hate spending time alone until I realized, with absolute glee, that an evening by myself meant I could do anything.
Isn't that an exciting prospect? Alone time is your chance to be your truest self , so dance around in your underwear, marathon that embarrassing cartoon, and snack away on whatever you want. It's really what "me" time is all about. No one ever said spending time alone meant locking your door and camping out at home. Go grab a coffee, walk around town, or read in the park. This still counts as "alone time," even though you're not technically by yourself.
Turn on some music, put our hair in a ponytail, and get to cleaning. In a few hours, your apartment will look amazing and you'll have successfully passed the time. Go you. Keep that in mind when if you start to feel lonely, or like you're missing out. You've been telling yourself for ages that you need to update your blog, or go for a run, or practice the piano.
Well, what better time, right? Having alone time means getting to focus on yourself and all your personal to-do lists. Spending time all by your lonesome is way easier when you know there are people out there who care. But when that's not the case, alone can become quite the painful prospect. Working on your relationships — and focusing on the good people in your life — can definitely make it easier. While there's nothing wrong with running around and doing things for others, it is necessary to occasionally cancel plans, kick back at home, and really pamper yourself.
The moment you climb into a bubble bath is the moment you forget why you hated spending time alone. Not only is alone time often an excellent experience, it's also an essential life skill that everyone should have tucked away. So cancel your plans, put down your phone, and get to hanging out with yourself. By Carolyn Steber. Ease Into Alone Time.Enjoy your personal time
