Why You Should Want to Be Alone

Used well, a dose of solitude can do you a world of good.

“Happiness isn't found in some finite checklist of goals that we can diligently complete and then coast. It's how we live our lives in the process. That's why the four pillars of happiness are faith, family, community, and meaningful work. Those are priorities we have to keep investing in.”
