As an introvert, having time alone is an essential need, but sometimes I find it difficult to find the right time because I’m not living alone. Actually, everyone needs the “me time” even though you are classified as the majority of extroverts. It’s just that the level of need for extroverts is less.

  • Remove Yourself from Unnecessary Information
  • Get tasks done more

Some of the following symptoms reflect that you need some time off with yourself:
