Ladies, Let’s Spend Some Time Alone?
‘Learn to be alone and to like it. There is nothing more freeing and empowering than learning to like your own company.’ – Mandy Hale
Well said, indeed. Loving & investing in yourself and enjoying your own company is a complete bliss. And when we talk about women, there comes a time during the day when you wish to keep aside all the roles and responsibilities, feel the moment and live in the moment. So, here I give you a list of things women can do to enjoy when spending time alone.
- Go ‘offline’ for a while
Take a day off and try to detoxify yourself. Have a peaceful day, go into the introspection zone. Spend time writing and relaxing. It is absolutely fine to stay disconnected for a while and fall in love with oneself. Remember that the most important relationship is the one that you have with yourself, work more towards it.

- Shop till you drop
So, this is one policy I follow sincerely and whole heartedly. We all do it, don’t we? I always prefer to go alone when shopping, why? ‘cause when I’m alone, I can swiftly make up my mind on what to take and what to drop off and also, I don’t need to convince anyone about any piece of clothing that I want to buy. My life, my terms and certainly my choice of clothing, yam?

It is absolutely okay to be laid back at times. Time for some self-love ladies! Shell out some big bucks and spend the day at your favorite spa.

Like they say, why should boys have all the fun?
- Take up that lost hobby
Be it writing, singing, horse riding, tennis or watching your favorite sitcom. Take up that hobby, just for your love for it and ‘self-satisfaction’, as they call it. Remember, you need no validation from anyone. Bring out the sassy chick in you and do all the unpredictably amazing things that you enjoy. [ Read: Biggest Signs That He Is In Love With You ]
- Go work you’re hard!
Yes, that’s right. Devote sometime for your own personal development. Get in shape, stay healthy and eat clean. Be consistent and target oriented. Every day strive harder to get better. Work for the body that you’ve always dreamt of having. Get going, girl!
- Find a connection with nature
Develop a strong relationship with nature. Spend some time in the lap of nature. Have an intimate relationship with the environment, which is further built into the human psyche. Go to that cliff top, have a barbecue. Enjoy the cool breeze caressing your skin. Never deny yourself from the simple pleasures of life.
- Let’s try something new, maybe?
Consider doing something you’ve never done before. Get out of your comfort zone and learn something new; Baking, adventure sports or even learning a foreign language. Challenge yourself with something new every day.
- Sense the solitude
Be happy. Do things that make you happy. Let go off things that are independent of you. There are things that are beyond your control and there are things that you need to let go off, for your betterment. Gracefully accept what life has to offer and get going.
There are a hundred things you can be and well, let’s just all the hundred things? From a fashionista to a love guru to a gardener, may be?
Remember its one thing to be alone and other thing to be lonely. Make the most of every day.
