Learning to enjoy your own company is an underrated skill

The graph clearly indicates that as we grow old, we will spend more time alone.
When we know that we will be spending more time alone, we will be left alone with our thoughts, we will have fewer friends around us, it’ll be wise to know how to enjoy your own company.
Here are 5 ways you can enjoy being alone.
- Travel alone
I travel at least once a month. Get yourself Vaccinated and go on a weekend vacation every month and a week-long travel every 3-6 months.
- Sing and Dance alone
Enjoy your own voice, fall in love with your body, go crazy.
- Take yourself on a date
- Go watch a movie alone,
- visit a museum alone,
- go to your favourite restaurant and enjoy your favourite dish alone.
- Go to the beach and enjoy the sunset alone.
- Ignore what others are doing
It’s hard to master this skill… but necessary if you want to enjoy your time alone.
- Take care of your body
Your body is the only one that will be with you throughout your life. Exercise at least 3 times a week, moisture that beautiful skin, dress up for no reason. There is absolutely no downside to being fit.
Things you should avoid at all costs:
“The trouble with imaginative people is that we’re good at picturing the worst that could happen to us” – ^^Show your work^^ by Austin Kleon
Thinking up past scenarios and figuring out things you could have changed. Don’t. It won’t help. It will only make you feel worse.
- Don’t compare yourself with others
We both know why 🙂
Becoming self-aware about yourself is the best part of spending time alone. Fall in love with yourself.
Learn how to make yourself enough for yourself without needing someone by your side. Enjoy shopping, listening to music, singing, walking and sitting alone. Make yourself your one and only partner that no matter what happens you will always be there for you. Loneliness isn’t bad if you know how to make the best out of it. No one will feel or understand you better than yourself.
