Oh yes, I've used a Grinch quote! ( if you are wondering what the Grinch is you better say sorry to Dr Seauss)
Doing things by yourself is such an important aspect of life and mental health. It helps your confidence grow as well as giving you time to reflect and think.
Now and again I like to go for a coffee with myself. I bring along my Kindle and a note pad. I try and avoid looking at my phone as that distracts me. I order myself a nice hot drink and try find a seat by the window.
Years ago, I struggled to walk to the shop on my own and I always asked my friends to come with me. It took a while to build up my confidence to do it but I feel amazing every time I do it.
I write down my thoughts and ideas that I have reflected on. Even taking a hour out just to spend time reading really helps. I always feel great afterwards.
This has helped me become confident in going to the gym by myself. I've even started to going to fitness classes on my own.
So try it next time you have a spare hour! Book in some time to meet yourself and spend time with yourself.
