5 Fun Things to Do When You are Alone to Become Your Best Self:
But being alone is also a GREAT opportunity for growth, in any dimension of your life, personality, business, relationships, fulfillment, health… you name it.
There are few things you can do that capture all these aspects of your life.
I practice going out alone, drinking my first cup of espresso alone, I love exercising alone, reading and working alone.
It helps me connect with deeper parts of myself.
It helps me feel good in my own company.
It helps me think of new ideas and it immensely contributes to my happiness.
If you are alone and you want to use this time to become your Best Self, here are the 5 fun things you can do.
1. Go in Nature.
Probably the best thing you can do when you are alone to recharge your energy is to go and immerse yourself in Nature, to sit on some bench or walk in some Park.
You can grab a cup of coffee, your favorite book or headphones and listen to your favorite music.
Or, you can just marvel the beauty of the Nature that surrounds you.
Whatever you do, if you are surrounding yourself with Nature your emotional, even spiritual self will be replenished.
You will connect with something greater than yourself.
This will give you sense of connection, humility and love towards life.
2. Try Something New.
We all have a routine, something that we do every day.
And no matter if our routine is healthy, it can be draining if we don’t get out of it once in a while.
Make a list of things you are passionate about, things you are curious about, places you would like to visit, foods you would like to try, museums to go to.
And when you are alone, just do some of these things for yourself. Try something new that you are passionate about and introduce novelty in your life.
You can just go at a different route than the one you take every day, it will be enough to give you that sense of novelty.
No matter if you are alone or not, exercise is always a good thing to practice.
However, when you are alone, you can use this period to follow your fitness goals.
You want to gain weight, lose weight, gain muscle mass, whatever it is… when you are alone you can do an exercise that brings you closer to your fitness goals. It’s healthy to move your body.
4. Do Your Passion Project.
You wanted to write a novel? You wanted to grow your instagram account, or start a podcast?
Well you are alone, there is nobody around you to bother you, and you have nothing better to do.
It’s the perfect period to do your passion project.
Maybe you will develop your sidehustle from it.
5. Just Spend Quality Time with Your Self.
To be alone is not to be lonely. In fact, lack of solitude can contribute to feelings of loneliness.
Why you might ask? Well.. when you are alone there are many things you can do to keep your mind away from the fact that you are alone. From boredom, from unhealed wounds, from unwanted thoughts.
And usually, we try to keep ourselves distracted. So we miss on the opportunity to get to know ourselves. Only when you get to know yourself, the relationship you have with your Self improves.
And that’s EXACTY why lack of solitude contributes to loneliness.
You are stranger to your own Self.
When you get to know your Self, than being alone will not equal being lonely. In fact, you will always have someone. Your Self.
And from that relationship, any other relationship improves, because any other relationship is a mirror to the relationship you have with your Self.
