Throughout the week, we may find ourselves feeling rather resentful towards people, especially after fighting against them for a seat on the subway or agreeing bitterly to yet another unfair assignment at work. Because of this, having some time alone will give you peace and quiet, making it easier to embrace many faces come Monday.
Sure, the weekend is a good time to kick back with friends or family by meeting them for drinks or a dinner out. But what about “you time?” The time spent fully and selfishly all about you, baby.
You may run errands, hit an early morning yoga class, or simply cuddle up in bed with your warmest blankets and a movie that makes you smile.
Whichever you choose, “you time” is pivotal in getting a much-needed relaxing and rejuvenating reboot. Here are three reasons why you should carve out some time alone this weekend.
It makes the most out of your weekend
Sure, hanging with others is a great way to spend time, but it may also mean sacrificing what you really want to do. Maybe it’s going for a hike, while your bestie wants to hit up a mall. If you invest in “you time,” you’ll ensure that your weekend was spent entirely up to your own personal desires. After all, the weekend is short. Spend it doing what you really like.
Gives you peace and quiet
It’s good for your health
Several research studies have been done on the subject, and the verdict is in: alone time could be the key to happiness. It’s a chance to reconnect to yourself. You may get creative, which science has shown can lead to your best brainstorming, or you may just kick back with a favourite movie and meal. Whatever the case, bask in your alone time and the fact that not only are you the only one to please and call the shots, but you’re improving your health too.
