Not everyone gets the chance to live independently, yet it can be one of the most exciting and validating experiences. You’ll quickly discover that living by yourself is far from lonely – it’s incredibly liberating. Living at the BLOQ parq (tBp) will foster freedom and ambition in all aspects of your life. The value of living alone goes beyond monetary means and is beneficial in the following ways.
“The greatest thing in the world is to know how to belong to oneself.”
– Michel de Montaigne
1. Gain A Sense Of Self
Living solo is an excellent opportunity to define or redefine yourself. This is the time to identify what matters most to you and the direction you want your life to head. From living with parents at home to having a college roommate to moving in with a significant other or spouse, most of your life will be spent in a shared living arrangement. You deserve a micro-residential space to call your own.
2. Become More Self Reliant
Got a problem? No problem! When you live on your own, you automatically gain a sense of independence. Depending on others to get things done or to make up for your shortcomings can serve as a crutch. When you don’t have someone under the same roof to rely on, you’re forced to become resourceful. You’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish on your own. At the same time, our micro-residential spaces are designed as part of a community that includes on-site management to ensure everything is in working order.
“Anyone who has done something worthwhile has spent time alone. Creative work and introspection and deep thoughts tend to come when we allow ourselves space.”
– Christine Whelan, clinical professor in the School of Human Ecology at the
University of Wisconsin-Madison
3. A Heightened Appreciation For Others
When you have a roommate, it’s easy to get comfortable just hanging out with him or her all the time. You’re less likely to put yourself out there and meet other people. Living solo means you need to make an effort to have a social life. The interactions you have will become more meaningful, and your people skills will improve ten-fold. The best part is knowing that when you want some alone time, your micro-living space is waiting to welcome you back home.
4. A Sense Of Pride
The ability to own a place provides a tremendous sense of accomplishment. To do it on your own takes it to the next level. This home is now your responsibility – one you earned and a decision you made. Having friends and family members over garners respect (and maybe some envy) at the fact that you can handle residing solo. Our micro-residential spaces are affordable and easy to maintain, setting you up for solo-living success.
5. Ease Of Relaxation
When you live by yourself, it’s easy to feel at “om” in your home. Decompressing can happen whenever and wherever you want. And when it’s time to get things done, productivity becomes second nature. It’s incredible what a difference it makes to have no one there to distract you from the task at hand. Besides, the tBp micro-residential spaces provide a furnished option, equipped with a feng shui that will send all the good vibes your way.
An advocate of micro-style living movement, tBp makes living on your own – and loving it – a reality that is within reach. Choose from our studio, 1-bedroom, or dual level models and prepare to be part of a community that will provide inspiration and the innate ability to thrive.
