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.
