Are you one of those people who hates being left alone and always looking for companionship? Being alone and being alone are 2 different things. Those who are single will never feel lonely and will always enjoy their company more. Add to the list the benefits they receive to spend quality time with themselves. Here are some valuable tips:
1. Give 'wings' to your creativity.
The reason why many poets and artists seek solitude is to display creativity. The kinds of ideas that come to us when we are alone are the most creative. When we are alone we listen to ourselves, find ways to implement our ideas, and become self-critical. Since we are not distracted, we end up expressing our artistic side more easily.
Keith Sawyer, a psychologist at the University of Washington in St. Louis, was quoted as saying in the Washington Post, “Decades of research have consistently shown that thought‘ storm ’groups think of far fewer ideas than the same number of people working alone and later they come together. "
2. Let the stress go away and the brain regenerate.
We often think that those who prefer to be alone are heading for depression or anxiety. Yes, it is important to be active, but studies have clearly shown that people who spend time alone are happier and show fewer signs of stress. They have a higher satisfaction from life and manage stress better than other people.
When you are with everyone, the mind is filled with thoughts from both yourself and others. Some of these thoughts affect your consciousness and this leads to stress or anxiety. To give the brain a break, it is important to spend some time alone. So, the next time you ask yourself why you want to be alone, you have enough reason to support that decision.
3. Improve your outlook on your relationship.
Spending time with yourself makes you aware of what you really want. This gives you clarity about the desires you have. It calms you down and makes you more empathetic to your relationship with others, even to stressful relationships.
Staying alone gives you enough space to appreciate the people around you. This helps you choose the type of people you want to be with.
4. Improve your concentration and productivity.
When you are alone, there are no distractions or interruptions. This gives the brain a better chance for the free flow of ideas. You focus better and are able to do more work in less time. Have you ever wondered why even students prefer to study alone and not in a group? Because according to one study, they achieve better results when studying alone.
We are generally busy filling our days instead of finding time for ourselves. We never think that little time can only do wonders for our productivity.
5. Listen to yourself from within.
The preferences you have, the choices, everything is in one way or another, influenced by the people and circumstances around you. In the midst of this chaos and noise, you tend to forget that consciousness has a voice as well, which should sometimes speak to you.
By being alone, you get to know yourself better. This makes you better understand the type of person you really are.
