Here’s why solitude is important for your well-being

Do you ever crave solitude?

I do.

This new article from Scott Campbell (for Quartz) offers mind-enlarging thoughts on the importance of alone-time.

“Being alone has many benefits. It grants freedom in thought and action. It boosts creativity. It offers a terrain for the imagination to roam. Solitude also enriches our connections with others by providing perspective, which enhances intimacy and fosters empathy.” – Scott Campbell
