Alone Time

June 3, 2020
By: Dr. Andrea Martin, Clinical Psychologist

Psychologist Andrea Martin, PhD on the importance of alone time 🧘‍♀️


Pandemic alone time hard to come by? Time alone is even tougher to get during lockdown, and we can get irritable, craving alone time, feeling guilty…

It’s ok to take time for yourself !

Here are a few strategies to get some time for yourself: 

  • Waking up before others in the household
  • Taking turns with a partner for childcare to get a little time alone (everyone benefits!)
  • Make a point of going for a walk alone 
  • Taking a bath (lock that bathroom door)!

Have you had your alone time today?
