Being alone doesn't mean you're lonely. Some of the most creative and successful people in the world enjoy being alone, and with a little practice, you can too!
1) Put Your Phone Down
Seeing, and comparing, yourself to everyone else will make you feel more alone. By turning your phone off, you can focus on the person you're spending time with - yourself!
What is NOT a sign of unhealthy phone use?
2) Do Something Creative
Try painting, writing, drawing, knitting, coloring, or cooking. Afterwards, congratulate yourself for bringing something new into the world, even if you never share it with anyone.
What is NOT a good hobby to take up alone?
3) Get Moving
You can't be lonely if you're too busy sweating! Even moderate exercise can boost your mood.
4) Treat Yourself!
If you're spending time alone, you don't have to care what anyone else wants to watch or eat - so treat yourself to a snack, TV Show, or book that you enjoy!
Spending time alone makes us more resilient and independent.
