I not sure whether I am alone with this or not but I am one of these people who likes my own company. I really need to have some time each day on my own. It relaxes and calms me. I find I get quite overwhelmed if I don’t have this time on my own. I’d like to think it isn’t me being anti social but more taking care of my personal happiness and well being.
I’ve often found other people question this and say that they would get bored being on their own. I can understand how this could be hard for someone who isn’t used to taking time to be in their own company. As you start spending time by yourself, you’ll start to realise what you like and what you don’t like.
Here are 10 ideas for me time:
1 Get some fresh air. Perhaps go for a walk and really enjoy being outside with nature.
2 Find a hobby you enjoy.
3 Have a pamper session. Slap that face mask on, lie back and relax or give yourself a manicure.
4 Take a restorative nap. Even short a 20 minute naps are shown to recharge your batteries enough to help you regain energy.
5 Cook or bake something new that you’ve never tried before.
6 Grab a snack and watch a favourite movie.
7 Start a journal.
8 Go shopping and treat yourself with something you normally wouldn’t buy.
9 Start a gratitude list. Write down three things in your life you are grateful for.
10 Pop your headphones in and sing along to your favourite songs. Remember you are on your own so nobody will hear you!
What do you do for some alone time?
