Meg Meeker on the Importance of Solitude
Everybody needs time alone. Dr. Meg Meeker, a pediatrician, shares with us the importance of solitude for ourselves and our children. Solitude is something that we easily lose in the busyness of the 21st century. Why is it important and how do we reclaim it?
As Dr. Meeker outlined, there are multiple benefits and advantages for a little solitude: taking some time out your day to relax and recover from the craziness and over-stimulation of the rest of the world. Everybody needs this solitude. Especially we busy moms. As hard as it is for us to take a step back and create some “alone time,” it is really important.
