Make time for yourself

Whenever I suggest to people that spending some time alone would do them good I nearly always get the same response. “I don’t have time” or “ I have too much to do to spend time sitting by myself doing nothing”.
Yes, time alone quietly reflecting or time spent on guided meditation can be beneficial but these aren’t your only options. 
There are so many things you can do alone. Remember, time spent alone needn’t be time wasted.
