Honestly I don't see strong evidence from the study supporting the crucial role that solitude play on the road to full rest. But as an introvert, I do need and enjoy solitude on a regular basis. Being alone allows me to talk to my inner self, to inspect my emotions, and eventually reach peach with myself. I often feel refreshed and regain energy after some respites alone. Usually in the afternoon around four o'clock I go out to a bakery nearby and grab a piece of chocolate cake to comfort myself. It's a 20-minutes round trip and it's an absolutely needed solitude time to me. The break refill me some extra willpower, patience, and rationality to hang tough until end of a day's work. :mrgreen:
