Today on the podcast, I offer 7 benefits of spending time alone. Sometimes we get too caught up in being lonely and choose to spend time with the wrong people. A couple weeks ago I published an affirmation about avoiding toxic people so that you can feel less lonely.
I also did an interview on Empower Radio recently about why people don’t remove themselves from toxic relationships. (You can get my cheat sheet for that at the bottom of these show notes.) Both of these posts inspired some questions and feedback from listeners because they understood that they should remove toxic people, but they didn’t want to be lonely. They asked me why being alone would be better than spending time with these people.
Why is being alone better than spending time with these toxic people? Here are seven great benefits of spending time alone.
The benefits include:
- Being Able to Do Whatever You Want
- Setting Goals and Achieving Them
- New Hobbies
- More Time to Read
- Exercise (yes, I really said that!)
- Time for Soul Searching
- Becoming an Expert at Something
Spending time alone is sexy and more powerful than it’s cracked up to be! You can easily reframe the time you spend alone as a gift you give yourself.
When you’re alone, you have an abundance of time to spend in ways that help you learn, achieve, and enjoy your life. Look forward to and enjoy the time you spend alone. It gives you the power to do anything you want. You’re the boss.
