A deeper look at the benefits of solitude

Because humans are social creatures, spending time alone has often gotten a bad reputation. In fact, it can trigger labels like “loner” or “outcast” which have negative connotations. However, research has found that there is a big difference in the outcomes of solitude, depending on the reasons. Those who have solitude put upon them can report greater incidents of depression and anxiety, but those who seek solitude often know what’s best for them, and enjoy improved mental health because of it. This is particularly true in young adults. Don’t see alone time as useless or selfish: it may be necessary.
