Powerful Benefits Of Spending Time With Yourself Everyday

They say that knowing yourself is the beginning of wisdom.

The current digital age comes with a digital detox plan, which you can ignore at your own risk. You’re not a digital being, even if that’s the era you’re thriving in right now – at least, not yet! You’re constantly grappling with avalanches of sensory stimuli.

All day, every day. In such a scenario, it becomes imperative to completely switch off and spend some time alone, and here's why:


  1. You realise whether or not you ruffle your own feathers – You’re the most authentic company you can ever find. If you can/can’t be comfortable in your own skin, it’ll begin to show on you. To perceive precious solitude as loneliness may be more a lack of self-confidence than actual fact. Spending some time with yourself, to understand the difference, may not only make it easier for you to draw social boundaries, but also to appreciate the therapeutic side of alone time.
  2. You get to reboot Everyone has a lot on their plate, and it’s impossible to bring life to a screeching halt so one massive reboot session can take place. It’s more feasible to allocate some daily time to do this. You can have your own definition of a reboot; there’s no right answer. I like to potter about with my stash of beauty products – it makes me feel optimistic about the coming day/week. The idea is to feel replenished and ‘restocked’ to face life once you open your door and step out.
  3. You gain fresher, better perspectives – When you mull over professional issues or personal ‘blocks’ in solitude, you see them for what they are, in the absence of any external influences. You may realise you’ve been misreading everything from the get go, or you may discover a simpler, less stressful alternative to tackle whatever’s troubling you.

4. You develop better sensitivity – Spending time with yourself is a great exercise in mindfulness or savouring facets of your surroundings ‘in the moment’. With technically ‘nothing else to do’, you’ll find yourself focusing on objects, sensations, or processes that are behind the things you actually ‘do’ daily – it could be the sturdiness of your 15-year-old writing desk, the sound of the temple bells that wake you in the morning, or the ‘smell’ and ‘feel’ of your bedroom as you walk into it. Look at these as those quiet, unassuming stepping stones towards renewing your zest for life. Appreciate their simplicity, and you might find yourself becoming calmer, and more ‘anchored’ in the chaos of life’s demands.


5. You appreciate silence – I think out loud because I find it cathartic. But sometimes, life can be stubborn, and you could have nothing to say about what it’s throwing at you. Spending a chunk of alone time in silence is difficult and distracting, but highly enlightening. Practicing silence makes you feel powerful, because you understand its power as a communication tool. You don’t have to retaliate, or justify your every move. You certainly don’t have to tell everyone what you’re planning. To master this art, you have to learn how to not fall to pieces when in silent mode yourself.


Benefits Of Spending Time With Yourself

Remember, you don’t have to justify your need for alone time. It doesn’t make you anti-social, it just makes you more balanced. Today’s communal mentality judges your individual contribution, so as to approve your ‘membership’ of the ‘pack’. If you want to stand your ground, you have to find your feet first – something that’s best figured out alone.
