    their personal times.,

    Do you prefer to relax alone or with family and friends?
    *I prefer to relax alone. When I relax alone, I don't have to consider other people. Besides, I can concentrate on myself.*And I think that people need their personal times., because it can make you develop more. So, I prefer to relax by myself.

    Does this make sense to mean "one's private time only for oneself".
    their personal times.,

    Yes.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Re: their personal times.,

    I guess time can't be plural as it’s uncountable in the meaning unlike in this case.

    People need their personal wallets.
