Here are the benefits of solitude:

1.Self-knowledge

Creating solitude for myself helped me find my voice, discover who I am, and fuel my creative writing. Solitude created the space for me to quiet down my thoughts and busy mind to write and enjoy feeding my thirst for knowledge by dedicating uninterrupted time to my reading and writing.


2.Becoming more creative

In solitude, once the usual, busy life calmed down, my ideas and inspirations came bubbling up after surrounding myself with stillness, meditation, and exercise.


3.Learning to do what I please


Letting go of what others think, how they feel about what I am doing, or how I spent my time. It is impossible to enjoy this experience when others are always around you, and the commitments and obligations are nagging at you.


4.Getting re-energized

Letting go of life complications, to-dos, and being present in the moment is what I enjoy doing when I have peace of mind. This is how I get re-energized.


5.Gaining clarity

Solitude provided me space and time to process life and difficult emotions. We can do that with loved ones and feel supported, but there’s nothing like reviewing and releasing emotions and thoughts, facing the whole of something without holding back.


6.Loving yourself

Solitude allowed me to face my inner critic and gather the strength that I need to get to know myself and enjoy being in my own company.


“You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with.” – Wayne Dyer
