1. Self Awareness
Solitude creates the space to connect with what we truly think and feel.
2. Be More Creative
In solitude, the swirl of your busy life calms and recedes around you so that your ideas, inspirations, and innate creativity will bubble to the surface.
3. Enjoy You
Let go of what others think of you - stop worrying about your impact on others. Solitude allows you to do whatever you want; a joy that can be difficult to experience when others are around.
4. Refuel Yourself
Use solitude to let go of the complications of life and others, and fall into the beauty of the present moment. Slow down and recoup your energy, gathering strength to re-engage with your life.
5. Process Difficult Feelings and Emotions
Sometimes it’s good to talk to others, and sometimes it’s just better to be alone. In solitude we can face the whole of something, sob our hearts out if we need to - and hold nothing back.
6. Learn to Love and Accept Yourself
Solitude gives us the space to meet our inner critic or person, examine our fears or limitations, and begin to become comfortable with ALL of ourselves.
7. Deep Gratitude
Time alone gives us precious time to reflect and see everything we have to be grateful for - big and small. We can learn to appreciate life in all of its glory.
8. Boost Confidence
Solitude allows you to honor yourself as God’s creation. The simple act of being alone with yourself is incredibly powerful, you literally show yourself that “I’m worthy”.
9. Get Clarity
Solitude helps the muddy waters of life to settle. You can reflect on what is and what is not working for you in life - whether it’s a difficult situation, relationship, decision or something else. Alone time helps you clearly see the whole truth of things
10. And finally, we need alone time because:
In SOLITUDE we get essential thinking and praying time to ask our important questions, along with space for ideas to arise - so we get the life DIRECTION we need.
