People often get confused with SOLITUDE and LONELINESS. Solitude is explained as the state or situation of being alone. Solitude is our self chosen state of being alone . Solitude is the joy of being alone and is empowering whereas loneliness is the pain of being alone.Those who find them lonely can indulge themselves in some productive activity like reading,writing or crafting. Solitude is the state of being alone especially when this is peaceful and pleasant.
I believe it is possible to be whole in any circumstance if you are willing to do the work. However, I also believe there are times in our lives when surrendering to solitude is the best medicine.
Yes, surrendering to solitude is the best thing sometimes. Many a times we need some space and time for lves and sometime being alone makes our mind healthier.
Sherrie Bourg Carter, Psy.D. reports spending time alone:
- Allows your brain to “turn off” and unwind
- Improves concentration and increases productivity
- Makes room for self-discovery
- Allows space for deep thought
- Helps you work through problems more efficiently
- Can enhance the quality of your relationships with other
Take out time for yourself , get up early in the morning go for a lone walk, keep your mind calm and admire the beauty of nature. Spend one whole day in solitude (Being alone but in front of any electronic device does not mean being in solitude) and think about yourself ,your life and yes please catch only positive vibes. staying positive is most important otherwise your mind can get disturbed. You can even meditate or do any sort of yoga. Solitude helps you in attaining inner peace.
The next time you find yourself alone, whether by choice or not, consider it an opportunity. Explore your inner world, meditate, practice yoga. You may surprise yourself by finding the peace you have been seeking elsewhere lies within you. The feeling you get being in solitude is unexplainable. Its a complete bliss.
