It Is OK to Enjoy Your Own Company
The barbershop has been depicted in the movies as one of the best places to go socialize. Most of the space in the barber shop is actually taken up by people who just come to pass time and fraternize with other people. And, this is all good because sometimes you just want to have a good laugh and enjoy the time spent with other people. But, it is also ok to enjoy your own company occasionally. This should be the time for introspection, and a time to gather your thoughts as you plan your life.
Not everyone who enjoys spending time on their own is an introvert, sometimes the world can just be overwhelming and you need a minute to yourself.
So how can you enjoy your own company?
Read a good book.
Many of us cannot find time to catch up with our reading. If you have a good book that you have been putting away because you do not have time, yet you want to read it, make time for yourself and just catch up with you're reading. Look for a quiet place that has no interruptions, sit in a comfy chair, relax and get lost in the literary world.
Catch up with your hobbies.
Many of us do not have time to do our hobbies. Due to the fact that we do our hobbies in our spare time and they are generally not an income earning activity, means that you will usually disregard them yet they have the potential of turning into money makers one day. During your free time, you can catch up with your hobbies as you appreciate the time spent alone.
Take a hike.
Taking the hike allows you to commune with nature without interruptions from human beings, traffic among other things. Pack a picnic or carry a good book to read once you get to your destination. You will enjoy the ambiance as you eat a good meal or read your favorite book.
Go for a spa day.
How about spoiling yourself by going for a spa day by yourself. Get a facial, get a massage, sweat it out in the sauna or just soak in the Jacuzzi. Having that time to yourself as you pamper yourself is a great way to unwind while you think about your life.
Start a journal.
There are people who have turned their journals into bestselling novels, if you have an interesting life and would like to share it with others, a journal would be a good place to start. However, it does not have to be something that you share with the world, a journal can be the one place you are able to share your deepest thoughts and just have that as a reference point whenever you are feeling melancholic or anything like that.
It is very important to learn to enjoy your own company because it gives you a lot of time to think and make necessary adjustments in your life.
