Alone Time – Does it Make You a Loser

“What a lovely surprise to discover how unlonely being alone can be” Ellen Burstyn

Alone Time - Good for You or For Losers?
Alone Time - Good for You or For Losers?
Hey GirlMoguls, it’s Daisy here, with a post in our quote series – today, my theme is about solitude. You know being alone on purpose. It also means no TV, computer, internet or video games. I think some music and books are allowed, but if you really want to go deep into solitude, try just taking a walk in the park without your tunes, or sitting in the backyard or even in your room.
Does it sound like torture? I mean, why would anyone want to be alone. Well to get some peace and quiet, to let your brain really cook. For creative people being alone can really bring on the trippy ideas – or help solve problems (like the time I figured out to fix the creaky arm on my newest robot). Sometimes I just take 15 minutes at the end of the day, sit in my room with some music on low and just let myself zone. It totally balances me out at the end of a crazy day and I am totally ready to get a good night’s rest.
That’s why I picked my quote. When I take a little time for myself, to truly be alone, I really never feel lonely. I feel great, totally comfortable with myself. And I also find I am in a much better mood – and totally able to deal with other people and not um, let my natural snarkiness, I mean impatience come out. I mean Lily can totally tell when I haven’t had enough alone time. And she steers clear until I’ve had my 15 minutes of blissful peaceout.

So go ahead – try being alone – try it for 15 minutes. You can set your timer or your alarm, and I bet you’ll be surprised at how it feels – mean when was the last time you were ever deliberately alone…see what I mean…. You can let me know how it goes in the comments below.
