Since everyone needs a little alone time every now and then, MTL Blog is here with a list of places to go in Montreal to do get exactly that.\nWhether you bring a book along or just get lost in your own thoughts, these places are sure to help you find the peace of mind you need!\nCheck out the list below!\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nI'm a city girl, through and through, but sometimes living right on a major boulevard in Montreal can leave me feeling a little exhausted. I'm an extremely social person, but I also take my alone time very seriously. Every now and again I feel the need to disconnect from everyone and everything. And, fortunately, there are tons of places to go in Montreal where I can do just that.\nSpending time with yourself doesn't necessarily mean staying home alone and binge-watching The Real Housewives, although I am a huge fan of doing that also. Spending time alone should also involve going out into the world and doing activities with just you.\nI call it: dating yourself, and I have been doing it for years. Sometimes I take myself on a long coffee date and other times I bring me to a museum to check out a new exhibit. Whatever I do, I do it for myself and it allows me to get to know the woman I am and the person I am turning into.\nTaking yourself on dates is one of the most valuable things you can do for you. And, with all the crappy dates we have gone on in our lifetime, it is nice to go out with someone who loves you unconditionally!\nAppreciate The Work At Montreal's Museum Of Fine Arts\nWhere: 1380 rue Sherbrooke\nView this post on Instagram A post shared by Jason Zhou (@jason_zhou00000) on Jan 7, 2020 at 6:40pm PST\nLocated in the beautiful Golden Square Mile, The Museum of Fine Arts has been one of my happy places since my teenage years.\nWhile basking in the magnificent art, you will be immersed in a creative space that will evoke a variety of emotions, which is ideal for a day of "me" time.\nGo to the website for any inquiries!\nShop For Fresh Goods At The Jean-Talon Market\nWhere: 7070 ave Henri Julien\nView this post on Instagram 🌸🌸🌸 A post shared by cole mccarthy (@thecolemccarthy) on Nov 11, 2019 at 2:26pm PST\nThe Jean-Talon Market is a gem living within our city.
