6 – Never spend time alone.

6 – Never spend time alone.

Most of the people I know hate to spend time by themselves. They are afraid to be alone for more than a few hours. And they will do everything to distract themselves instead of facing their fears.

Luckily, I don’t have this problem anymore. I spent so much time alone that I got used to it. And now, I need it for my well-being.

Lone time feeds you perspectives. It helps you work on your projects, ideas, and purpose. It gives you time to breathe and reflect. And never be afraid of being alone.

    Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

    Ashley Anthony

    This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

    Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
