Actively engaging in alone time gives you the opportunity to think through decisions and reflect. During this period of self-isolation, many of us are suddenly living on top of each other. Kids are permanently home from school, many parents are working from home, and many partners are getting sick of the smell of each other! So it’s important to schedule alone time in advance so that everyone can keep their sanity.
When you’re alone, you’re free to sit with and process your emotions, which allows you to heal and maintain emotional stability. If you need to cry, scream, or punch pillows, no one’s stopping you. Dedicate some time to be alone with a journal, a podcast, some relaxing music or a creative outlet that allows you to release what you’re suppressing.
