Contemplating Insanity? Tip 3. Find a Little Solitude

1 Comment

A chair in a quiet spot, a woman in the bath and a man alone on the beach

The following post is an excerpt from my e-book entitled Tips for Those Contemplating Insanity. Please feel free to leave your thoughts and suggestions!

Alone time, otherwise known as Me Time, is essential for good mental health. It gives you the mental space to work through situations, regroup and prepare to jump back into the fray.

Find a place to be alone.

  • Curl up in a corner with a book
  • Take a bath
  • Go for a walk
  • Sit in a coffee shop
  • Drive to a park

Do something unhurried in a situation where you can hear yourself think. Take deep breaths. Allow your mind to wander uninterrupted.

Too Much of a Good Thing

There is such a thing as ‘too much alone time.’ You can always do these things with a friend. And don’t forget Tip 12. Hug a Loved One.

Would You Like a Copy of the E-book?

My e-book will be officially launched in January but this week only I’m giving away personalised copies of the e-book to those who participate in the Creativity’s Workshop survey. For more information, see Sunday’s post. Don’t miss out!

P.S. There are still some people who have participated in the survey but not commented on Sunday’s post to let me know. The survey is anonymous so I can’t send out the e-book unless you comment. Thanks to everyone who has participated so far!
