You’re Nicer to Be Around
If you doubt this one, think about what you’re like when you haven’t had alone time for a while. When you spend too much time in the thick of things, it’s easy to become kind of unpleasant to be around. But after you’ve taken time for yourself, you’re generally calmer and relaxed. This shows in the interactions with the people in your life. It’s no wonder they love it when you take time for yourself.
You Raise Your IQ
Want to get smarter? Take some alone time with a good book or two, or better yet, in taking a class or otherwise working to better yourself. Now you’re not only more relaxed, but you’re also smarter too!
Your Body Will Thank You
Alone time is great for your mental health just because you’re giving your brain a break. But if you’re using your alone time to exercise, you really start supercharging the effect. There’s nothing like optimizing your health when making the most of your Alone Time.
Your Brain Works Better
Losing focus? Alone time allows you to get back on track again. Alone time weeds out the distractions and allows you to think through things properly.
You Discover You at Your Creative Best
