Making The Most Of Solo Living: 5 Tips

Living alone for the first time can be a great new adventure. For those who find themselves doing it after living with family members who can be too loud for their liking, it’s a liberating, exciting prospect. However, it can be difficult for others – especially if you enjoy other people’s company.


A solo journey alone has plenty of advantages – and challenges, too. However, overcoming them is achievable. You can live alone, safely, without feeling alone in the world.


Here are some tips to help you get by on your solo living journey! 


Comfortable Silences

For single people living alone for the first time, it’s important to become comfortable with silence. Silence does not always mean stillness, and enjoying it without freaking out is possible. Being alone with your thoughts may seem like a Herculean task, but once you get used to it, you may find yourself enjoying them, even. The key to enjoying silence is to feel secure in your solitude. Although you may sometimes itch to fill the silence with background noise or music, true peace lies in the ability to embrace stillness. It also means embracing being alone – it means more privacy, and this means you are taking up space. 


That means being your own best company. However, don’t hesitate to contact others if you feel lonely, miserable, or need company. It is also a part of acknowledging your loneliness. 


Sometimes even a simple voice call online or having face-to-face meetings like dinner parties and game nights can help rejuvenate you and help your home with good energy and laughter. 

No matter how much you enjoy living alone, you may feel lonely occasionally. You should not deprive yourself of contact with friends and family on these occasions. 


A New Schedule 

One great tip to settle in is to follow a regular daily schedule. A schedule can help you accomplish a sense of purpose – and distract and reduce feelings of loneliness. You don’t always have to follow a schedule; spontaneity is also good. However, if you have things to accomplish, it can help you feel more energized and more motivated to get them done. And if you are getting things done, you may focus too much on the task that you may have noticed that a lot of time has already passed. 


As the adage goes, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. This is why you also need to give yourself an allowance. Make time for errands, chores – and hobbies. By having a clean environment, you can reduce anxiety and feel better. 


Having a schedule will give you a sense of security, too.


New Hobbies

Since you live alone, it is a great time to experiment with new stuff and hobbies. By getting into new interests, you are also delving into new territory – a critical component of self-discovery. It can be tricky, especially if you are learning a new skill set, and practicing it might be terrifying. Although some anxieties you may get while getting new hobbies are valid, it is also worth remembering that trial and error is a part of life and that no one is perfect. 


You will become stale and stagnant if you refuse to abandon your old hobbies and interests and remain with the same people. Going outside your comfort zone is more fulfilling because it can broaden your perspective, aid your growth, and lead you to new people. 


Value Your Friendships

Furthermore, now that you live alone, you must place more value on your relationships and nurture them. Don’t be shy to seek out others who enjoy solo living and its benefits. Plenty of people are also going solo – and they will also understand your struggles with it. By connecting with others who understand the benefits and struggles of living alone, 


Don’t forget to spend time with friends. Meet up with them! Remember to keep them nearby on your phone, especially if you are lonely. Small things like these can go a long way.


Decorate Your Home

Lastly, you should decorate your new place to feel like home. Don’t be afraid to personalize! According to research, personal interior design elements can have positive psychological effects. In addition, you can personalize and do a great job of making your new space your own without spending a lot of money!
