Set Alone Time| Set aside a specific time of the day that you want to be meant for you and only you. By the way, this time shouldn’t consist of bedtime hours. It should be a time of day that you can have to yourself consistently so that your peers will understand and respect that as your time

Set an alone place| Find a place where you can go and embrace yourself. This place can be near or far but just make sure it is easily accessible.

Start a hobby| It sounds cliché, but hobbies are perfect opportunities to focus on something other than what’s going on in your busy life. It may take time to figure out what the perfect hobby is for you, but when you do, you’ll learn so much about yourself.

Put your phone on do not disturb| The ‘Do Not Disturb’ feature on your phone is a blessing. You can turn it on during your alone time to make sure you’re not distracted when the squad is calling you. Just don’t forget to turn it off when alone time is over.
