Being on your own can be scary; there’s a sort of a stillness that surrounds you. No matter how much you may have longed for being alone, it can be quite a foreign experience, but it doesn’t mean you can’t find your happiness on your own!

Being on your own after being surrounded by people all the time can be a tad overwhelming. You might even find yourself wishing to surround yourself with others.

People can bring you joy and happiness, but the responsibility for your happiness is your own. So instead of waiting around for someone to make you happy, you can go about making yourself happy!

1. Don’t Compare Yourself

Remember that life isn’t a race and that you’ll get where you need to be in your own time. Don’t look at other’s success and feel the need to compare yourself to them.

You’ve got your own set of challenges to work through. If other people are succeeding, support them and celebrate with them. They’ll be celebrating when your turn comes around!

2. Let Your Mind Wander

Sometimes you just need a break from all the noise of life, no matter how small! So put your devices down and let your mind wander, daydream and think about anything and everything!

3. Treat Yourself

You work really hard to be where you are, so go out and treat yourself to something you like. It can be as small as buying yourself candy that you really want or even buying that expensive thing you’ve wanted for months!

4. Gratitude

Practice being grateful for what you already have in your life because while we want better for ourselves, we forget the things we do have! Thank the people in your life when you can because if the pandemic has shown us anything, it’s that things can change in a heartbeat!

5. Learn To Manage Your Stress

You need to be able to deal with challenges when you face them, especially when you’re on your own. Get help from a professional therapist if you need to, and learn how to deal with your stress so that it doesn’t follow you into your free time!

Do something creative even if you’re absolutely horrible at it! It can be drawing, painting, or even writing, anything that lets you create freely!

You need somewhere just to let your creativity flow without rules and expectations. No matter how bad you are at it, give it a shot because you might be creating something you love!

7. Work On Your Goals

Spending a lot of time on your own gives you a chance to put things into perspective and figure out what you want in life. With no limitations, you can work on those goals without being distracted!

8. Get A Pet

If you’re feeling lonely but there’s really not much you can do about it, you can get yourself a companion! They do need a lot of attention, so you’ll have to be up for the responsibility, but they can bring a lot of joy and happiness into your life!

9. Volunteer

Find a cause that you believe in and volunteer your time to that cause. Then, because it’s important to you, you’ll find joy in helping out and even spend your own time learning about ways to help!

Being happy on your own doesn’t mean you can’t spend time with other people, especially if you love them. They add to your life and happiness, so don’t forget to hang out and catch up every once in a while!

The journey to finding happiness on your own can be rough, and it gets lonely, but it won’t be forever. You just need to spend your time doing things you love, and you’ll end up where you need to be in bliss!
