Solitude is a wonderful thing. It gives us time to relax and be content, and it brings us back to the present.
To me, solitude is watering my plants, preparing a healthy meal, walking outside, reading a good book or three, learning, and creating. It’s refreshing, rewarding, calming, peaceful, and always feels like time well spent.
Solitude isn’t watching TV for hours or aimlessly wandering the internet. These things don’t ever make me feel better. They bring about fatigue, anxiety, guilt, and a sense of time wasted. Let’s limit our time spent before the screens. When we’re bored, instead of browsing channels and shows, let’s read a book, learn a new skill, or watch the clouds.
Habits are hard to change, but the benefits of solitude are much worth the effort.
Let’s enjoy more solitude. Let’s walk, read, meditate, garden, practice yoga, paint, whatever it is that brings us peace and a sense of time well spent.
Much Peace and Keep Roamin’
