Though humans might be social creatures, we also need time to ourselves. Our brains crave some time to relax.
Interestingly, our society views solitude in a negative light. It’s considered pitiful to be alone on Saturday night. When kids misbehave, they are sent to their rooms alone as punishment. It’s practically blasphemy to go to a movie or a restaurant alone because of the perceived optics.
But choosing to spend time alone is nothing to be embarrassed about. In fact, it’s wise to spend some time alone on a regular basis.
