Solitude. A beautiful word, isn’t it?
Part of loving yourself first, is taking time for yourself first.
Do it without guilt. And do it often.
Many people wait for their anxiety to overflow before taking action. They only take time for themselves after a traumatic life change such as a divorce or death in the family or job loss.
Don’t be that person. Instead, take a proactive approach.
Be honest with your family, friends and coworkers about your solitudinal needs
Learn to say no and check FOMO at the door
Build “me” time into your daily schedule
Downtime is nothing to ashamed about, it should be relished. Cherish your empty moments like a warm embrace.
