Updated: Apr 4, 2020

"The Psychological Benefits of Being Alone"

Sunday's Topic: "The Psychological Benefits of Being Alone"

Solitude often gets a bad rap. Experts extol the virtues of social connectivity; it's linked to better immunity, improved stress resilience, and even longer life.

Research is increasingly showing that there are real benefits to finding things to do by yourself. Doing things by yourself allows you to enjoy activities you love at your own pace and in your own way. Through solitary pursuits, you learn more about yourself and reflect on your experiences.

It is important to remember that being alone and loneliness are two very different things. Loneliness involves being isolated despite wanting social connections, where being alone means taking time for yourself between regular social interactions.

Times When Solitude Can Be Beneficial

  • It's voluntary

  • You also maintain positive relationships

  • You can return to social groups when desired

  • You feel good about spending time alone

The Benefits of Being Alone

  • It Can Improve Concentration and Memory.

  • It Makes Your Interests a Priority.

  • It Boosts Creativity.

  • It Improves Your Relationships.

  • It Makes You More Productive.

  • It Makes You More Empathetic.

  • A Word From Verywell.
