Five reasons to love being single

by

Your time by yourself is extremely valuable if you use it correctly and keep an optimistic attitude. If you’ve forgotten the great perks about being single, here are five reminders why you should embrace it!

1) You can do whatever you want, whenever you want
Never underestimate how liberating it is to do whatever you want whenever you want to do it. You can finally learn to play guitar, sleep in late or catch an art-house Sunday movie at the cinema. Your time as a single person is the perfect opportunity to explore all of the things you love doing or have always wanted to do.

2) Focus on your personal growth
This is the time to focus all your energy completely on you. Spend time reflecting on your past and think about what you want out of the future. Determine what personal qualities are important to you. In the long run, it will help you find clarity on what you’re looking for in a relationship.

3) There’s a sense of adventure
You’re free to enjoy unplanned Friday night drinks without having to phone your partner to explain you’ll be in late. You can book a mini-break to Queensland on the spot, or be open to whatever social invites come your way. Embrace spontaneity! The world is your playground.

4) Build your friendships
When we fall into a long-term relationship, some of us disappear from our social circles. Singletons generally spend more time with their friends than those in committed relationships. Make the most of this time to connect with your friends, reconnect with old friends and make new ones.

5) Concentrate on your career
Without commitments or distractions, you can put all of your energy towards getting that promotion you’ve had your eye on. You could take evening or weekend classes to boost your CV or take the time to change your career path. Who knows, being single could land you the job of your dreams!
