Becoming comfortable with solitude


  Becoming comfortable with solitude

Solitude is a state of being alone, or lacking company. It often means the absence of others. This isn't a novel idea, but it's a word that has been thrown around in recent years as more and more people are becoming comfortable with solitude.

In this post, we're going to examine what it means to be solitary and how to be comfortable with being alone. We'll break down the difference between solitude and loneliness so you can understand why it's important for some people to protect themselves from extraneous distractions when they need space or privacy.

In order to understand the concept of solitude, you first have to know what it isn't. Solitude is not loneliness. Solitude doesn't mean you don't know people; it means you don't know many people. It's something that can be achieved through self-imposed solitude (which we'll get into shortly), a distance from other people or circumstances.

Now that we've established what solitude is not, let's get down to the nitty-gritty of why people might want to be alone and why they might feel uncomfortable with being alone at times.

There are many reasons for being alone: some obvious, others less obvious. Being alone allows you to take a mental health day when you feel the need. It's also a time to catch up with yourself and be alone with your thoughts. If you're feeling stressed, lonely or overwhelmed, it's useful to remove yourself from the situation and think about it before jumping back in.

Being alone gives you the opportunity to reflect on your life, or set goals and create plans for your future – without distracting input from other people's ideas. For some people, being alone is a time to decompress, replenish and recharge their batteries. If you're a "workaholic," being alone can give you the time and space to reflect on what you do, why you do it and how it affects your life.

Even though solitude can be subjective, we believe the benefits of solitude far outweigh the negatives. That said, being alone doesn't have to be unpleasant if used properly. In order to make solitude enjoyable, here's what you should do:

Restore order – You may not have thought about this before, but putting everything away before tidying up with your roommates can actually help your mind. When you have everything in its proper place and restored to its proper state, it allows your mind to focus on what you want to do.

Focusing – There are some things that require your undivided attention. The most obvious example is reading a book. It's impossible to read a book if you're distracted by the television or the internet; when you're alone, you can devote all of your attention to the written word while not worrying about being interrupted for work or by someone else's needs .

Motivation – Being alone gives you the motivation to do what's necessary to complete a task so that you don't spend more time doing it later on. This is a way to stay on top of your game and not fall behind in the race of life.

Your thoughts – When you're alone, you have the ability to be honest with yourself. You can have a real conversation with yourself and get your thoughts out there without being interrupted by a recommendation from someone else.

Decision making – Solitude gives you time to think about whether or not what you want to do is right for you, for the person or persons that are important to you and make it clear that regardless, actions will be taken quickly and appropriately so that everyone involved can move forward with their lives.

Private time – When you're alone, you can do what you need to do. You don't have things hanging over your head from other people. If your roommate is unable to wash the dishes, you don't have to do them for him or her. If there's no one around, that means no interruptions come knocking on your door and you have complete control over what happens to your house while everyone else is home.

In this post we'll talk about why some people need to be alone at times and how others use solitude as a way of life. There are times when you might not feel like you need to be alone to decompress or regroup. However, at other times, it's a necessity. The world can be a hectic place and while being alone may mean you're lonely by societal standards, it's important that people are able to enjoy the solitude they seek.

If you're one of those people who needs to be alone from time-to-time or if being alone is how you live your life, solitude is something that can bring pleasure and peace of mind. It's about finding a rhythm and an order that fits in with your life as well as the lives of others around you.

After reading this article, you'll understand why some people need to be alone and how to make solitude more enjoyable and productive for yourself. You'll know how to take charge of your solitude and do what you need to do in order to become comfortable with living a life of solitude.

Work on finding the rhythm that works best for your life. By being alone, you may find that the rhythm doesn't work out for you as well as you hoped. If this is the case, try finding another rhythym that works better for your personal life; a solo song or an acoustic guitar will allow more room for introspection as well as giving you something else with which to focus on.

When you start feeling like you need to be alone, it may be time to take a break. If you are constantly always by yourself, there may have been some underlying issues that needed your attention. Additionally, procrastination can often times lead to feeling alone and lacking both the energy or motivation to get something done. You may also find yourself looking at life from a macro level and realize you're in need of some self-reflection. Solitude can be a great way to do this; just remember: slow and steady wins the race.

Once you have decided to take a break and need to be alone, there are a few things you can do. One of the most important things you can do is establish what needs doing. By writing down exactly what needs to be done, you may isolate some issues that have been plaguing you and find solutions for those too. Additionally, it can serve as a reminder for your roommate or significant other that they need to get their part in the process done. Don't let your solitude go unfulfilled; make sure everyone involved is on track towards the same goal.

2.) Re-evaluate – Take time to reflect on your life and why you feel isolated from others, even when just by yourself.


Being alone can be a physical and mental necessity, but it doesn't necessarily have to be lonely. Solitude can be a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle of life to relax, reflect on what you're doing, and give your thoughts some room so that you can come up with more productive solutions for your problems. In order to do this, you need to make solitude enjoyable by finding the rhythm that works best for you as well as having some understanding of what exactly solitude is.
