I have been living alone for a year in a tiny studio located in a tiny village surrounded by beautiful and inspirational forest and mountains. I have spent most of my free time hiking around and travelling. Regarding to this, I think I have learned a lot on a personal level, to face loneliness and fear, and live happily surrounded by simplicity, to take care of my mental and physical wellbeing. I also have been learning a lot by myself about the surrounding nature and working on my own projects during my free time. In conclusion, I have learn that I can easily feel good and happy when I am alone for a long period of time and enjoy as usual, feeling more powerful and socially independent.
