15 Ways To Spend Your Alone Time

Image result for quotes about spending time alone

By far one of the hardest lessons I ever learnt was how to spend time alone, without being lonely. I know from past experiences, the term “alone time” can either spark a panic response which can lead to feelings of loneliness, isolation and fear of rejection, or it comes as a sign of relief, a sense of calm and relaxation. For me I had to learn to build that relationship with myself in order to stop panicking whenever I was on my own.

The second hardest lesson, which goes hand in hand with the first, is that despite humans having been a social species from the very beginning, where people used to go to extreme lengths to make sure they weren’t abandoned as part of the tribe; the person we will spend the most time with is essentially ourselves. And I believe that to truly understand ourselves, to take care of our souls, and be the best person we can possibly be, we need to grow, and to grow we need to spend more being introspective.

“Be alone. Eat alone, take yourself on dates, sleep alone. In the midst of this you will learn about yourself. You will grow, you will figure out what inspires you, you will curate your own dreams, your own beliefs, your own stunning clarity…”

– Bianca Sparacino
