This Gutsy Choice Scores You Major Happiness
It’s time to ditch your man, your friends, and OMG, your phone for a solo adventure. Why? Experts say it will rock your world... and change the way your brain works.
When Naveeta Puri, a 29- year- old accountant, decided to go on a cross- country road trip, she knew it had to be alone. “As corny as it might sound, I thought this would be a good way to figure out more about myself,” she says. Navneeta did just that, between learning to love the perks of eating breakfast alone in hotels, hiking random trails, and taking road detours because she liked discovering anonymous tiny towns... and she became hugely confident in the process. Yep, Navneeta’s trek sounds awesome, but let’s get real: exploring by yourself takes some guts, and many of us don’t consider it a first choice when making plans. We got experts to explain why it’s time to rethink that instinct.
