I recently wrote a blog post about hiking. I like to do this with my Dad, my girlfriend and with friends. However, now and again, I like to go alone.
In a world that’s so connected, social and “online”, it can be hard to find time to switch off and be alone. This can be anxiety-inducing and I understand that.
I’m perhaps a more introverted person, so don’t mind time alone. It helps me recharge, so when I do socialise with others, I can be more present.
But I also think it’s important for everyone who can to spend time alone.
It can help us clarify our thinking, do some much-needed self-reflection and learn to be comfortable in silence and solitude.
When was the last time you spent time alone in silence?
How much time do you spend alone?
