I’ve always lived with someone. I have never had the chance to actually have a place all to myself. So when I get the house to myself, its actually a really great time for me. I love it. I love being alone. I love the solitude. I love being quiet. I like that fact that there is no one around me. That isn’t to say I always want to be alone, its just that when I get these moments, I cherish them.
For me, there are aways a couple of things that makes this time great and that is the reason for tonight’s post. These are just three of the best but there could have easily been more.
1. No Schedules
2. Going Nude (that’s right walking around naked)
3. Singing and Dancing (like there is no one around – because there isn’t!)
No schedules. This is simply a dream come true when you are by yourself. You don’t need to have dinner at a certain time, there is not set time that you need to get up, no set time to do anything. That is why this is at the top of my list. I love being able to let go of the structure of life for those precious days by myself and just adopt a freer, less contrictive lifestyle.
I know that it might be cliché about going nude but really that is a time to be one with your birthday suit. Its not to say you can’t walk around nude with your partner or whoever else you feel comfortable with but it just seems better when you are alone. To walk around and not try to hide all the flaws you think you have (which you might do with someone else). Just getting naked. Its liberating.
My last item on the list was singing and dancing. This is one that I truly get behind. I’m lucky because I don’t have close neighbors, so I can blast my music and I do. Its so loud and I just sing to the songs on my playlist and dance around my house. Its fun, great exercise and a grea way to cut out the stress. One of the best songs for this is Part of Me by Katy Perry. Another good song for this is Sugar, Sugar by The Archies and of course anything by Lady Gaga.
