The Importance of Solitude

December 17, 2014

When was the last time you took the day for yourself?  Today the idea of taking taking time for solitude is viewed as a luxury.  This is a huge mistake, as it is actually essential to your health.  Here’s why:
  1. Solitude allows you to reboot your brain and unwind.   Without solitude your brain doesn’t have a chance to replenish itself.  Being alone allows you to clear your mind, focus, and think more clearly.
  2. Solitude allows time for reflection.  What do you want?  What are your goals?  What would you do if there were no limitations?  These are important questions to ask yourself and the fuel to living a fulfilled life.  
  3. Alone time helps your relationships with other people.  Spending time alone allows you to understand yourself and what you want in life.  This is in turn will assist you to spend more quality time with people who are on the same page (it will also help you remove the unhealthy relationships that are holding you back.) 
If you can’t take an entire day to yourself (you always can, but if you think you can’t now) don’t worry.  You still have the ability turn off your phone, get up early, or shut the door.  

Give it a try, you won’t regret it.

    I love my “mental heath” days. A day to do what makes me happy and not feel guilty about it.

    …I mean health, not heath…
