i find i need alone time. time to think and journal and collect my thoughts. or maybe to organize my thoughts. coffee with a friend doesn’t count (since i’m not alone), date nights don’t count (but i love those, too!).
for me, quality alone time might be a soak in the sub, a short nap, a drive alone to run an errand, or time to sit in my car and make a list while i look at the ocean. after a few minutes of solitude i find i am energetic, ready to play with my boys and happier in general.
how about you? do you need you crave solitude? how do you find time for it?
