7 Ways to Be Happy Being Alone ...


There may be no truer saying than "one of the ways to be happy being alone is to learn how to be solo without being lonely." Yes, it’s also true that it’s important to know how to get along in this world of people, people everywhere, and not lose contact with the other beating hearts in your spiritual zip code. Follow these ways to be happy being alone, and you may find yourself craving the occasional Saturday night where the phone doesn’t ring.

Take a nap in the middle of Saturday afternoon and leave the phone in the kitchen. Go to the store you love and can never afford anything in, and try on whatever your heart desires (don’t they have a clearance rack too? But save that one for a non-decadent day…)...
