How to Be Alone and Enjoy it

How to be alone and enjoy it?

We find ourselves constantly looking for a company, for some familiar face so that we don’t feel alone. But what’s so bad about being alone? Do we not know how amazing we are and therefore we try to find other people who would make us feel good? Let me share with you my solutions for how to be alone and enjoy it. You might want to stick around, since this lesson you’ll carry your whole life. Because the relationship you have with yourself is the one that will last your whole life.

 

1. Get to know yourself.

If you want to learn how to enjoy your own company, you have to get to know yourself first. It’s the same process you had at the beginning of your every relationship, you have to get to know the person first. So what’s your story? What do you like about yourself? What are your small victories and the biggest successes? And what are the mistakes that have taught you the most valuable lessons? Be honest with yourself and write it all out on a paper. What are you good at? What makes you unique? After all these answers you’ll realize that you’re actually not so bad.

 

2. Take yourself out on a date.

Don’t be embarrassed by your own company. Don’t think that some may find it weird that you’re at the cafe by yourself. Who cares? We all need some time alone. So dress up and get a cup of coffee at your favorite coffee place. Or go to the movies by yourself. Take a one-day trip to some city near you and take pictures of everything. Make the most delicious dinner, get a glass of red and celebrate how amazing you are.

3. Challenge yourself.

Take the time you have for yourself to try out something you always wanted but no one wanted to join you. Yoga class? Gym? French lessons? You know what it is. Realize that you can do it by yourself and do it. Don’t let anyone stop you. Also, you can start researching things that interest you, no one is going to judge you. In my case, at one point in January I had a lot of time for myself, so I started this blog. Not a bad idea, right? So far, very enjoyable.

4. Love love love yourself.

Give yourself a hug. When you wake up each day, put your hand on your heart and say ” (your name), I love you”. Truth is, when we love ourselves, we love others as well. We are not judging other people. We are aware that we’re all human beings trying to live our best lives, trying to be happy. Don’t be too hard on yourself, realize what you’ve accomplished in your life. Be proud of yourself. Love yourself and be open to receive love from others.
At the end of the day, you’ll always have yourself. Be there for yourself. Always make yourself a priority. Nourish your body with quality food. Nourish your mind and soul with positive thoughts and be grateful for who you are. Because you are incredible.

  1. Doing things I love and don’t usually have time for.
    I have no problem with being alone. My problem is that with my two kids I am almost never alone, but I love so much my ‘me time’ whenever it happens!

  2. There’s so much pressure to be social that sometimes I think we need to allow ourselves to be okay with spending time alone. I love these ideas and practice many of them regularly. A woman needs time to reflect and recharge for sure!

  3. I adore this post. I always stress how important it is to love and accept yourself! It’s truly the foundation of a healthy lifestyle β™‘. Thank you so much for highlighting how important and awesome self love is πŸ˜˜πŸ’™πŸ’œ.

  4. I loved this post. I love being alone to just enjoy my own company. No television, no books, no music. Just me and myself and my thoughts. Being married and having children makes this difficult at times, but in order for me to be the best mom and wife that I can be, I need my alone time.

  5. Good post. I think we all need a lot more me time, alone time with our thoughts and ourselves. It’s so important to reconnect and realize who you truly are. I don’t think this is only for singles, I think that people who are in relationships should take some alone time and learn to be alone. This can be a scary place for many that shouldn’t be avoided. πŸ™‚

  6. I honestly love my own company. I always have , probably a bit too much at times as people often said I was antisocial. However it felt very natural to me. As I get more comfortable in my own skin , I embrace my little quirks and realise that those who have something to say about it are the ones who struggle with their own company.
    Great post 😊

  7. I love this! I have a tendency to feel like I should be doing something when I’m alone; I feel guilty just enjoying the quiet. I need to work on that.

  8. I’m so unusual in that I love being on my own and in my own company. I think because when I’m on my own, all my creativity comes out and I feel inspired to film, write and edit. Although I can’t say I’ve taken myself out on a date yet. I must try it sometime! I love travelling on my own. Feeling like you’re not responsible for someone else and only yourself is pretty liberating. I definitely think we should all have some along-time sometimes. It also teaches us to be less reliant on others.

    1. I agree with everything you said πŸ˜€ I also love travelling alone and creating my own schedule according my own needs and interests πŸ™‚
