Spend time alone

Spend time alone, be by yourself sometimes, it's good for your mental health. You shouldn't need to always have a plan or always do something with a friend, it's important to give time to yourself as well.

Last night was one of my favorite nights of the entire summer and I will tell you exactly why. I managed to leave work around 10:30 which is actually a decent time to get out for me, I was home before 11. It was a long day, I can't lie, and as slow as it seemed to be it was slightly stressful for me for some reason. So after working a 12 hour day, my mind was still racing when I got home, I couldn't seem to relax, so I did what is probably the most relaxing thing to do on the cape. I grabbed my journal and a pen and made a 5 minute walk to my nearest beach. Nobody was around, no noise, it was just me, my notebook, and my thoughts. All I could hear were the waves slowly reaching the shore, it was extremely peaceful.

For about 20 minutes I just laid on my back and stared at the stars, just thinking about where I am and and where I want to go in life. I had ideas and I had thoughts I might not have had if I did not take that time to myself.

This entry is similar to the "Be Bored" entry in that the premise is the same, sometimes you have to let go of distractions and just focus on your mind. I am not saying that you should be a loner and not seek out friendship because for growth as humans we depend on others. Instead just take a moment here and there to step back and just think.
