But there’s more. While socializing with friends and other loved ones is also an essential part of living a healthy, happy life, it’s also essential to make time to simply be “with yourself,” to give yourself love, without it necessarily being time at the gym or sleeping in bed. Let’s call this “me time,” time to just be, recharge and reset.
