10 of the Most Helpful Tips for Living Your Best Single Life

Some people say it takes 10,000 hours to become an expert in something. As such, most of us should have earned beyond a doctorate degree in the art of being single. There are a few things about single life that some people overlook. A lot of articles for single women try to show them how to snag a partner. That’s great, but what are you supposed to do in the meantime? Rather than sit and wait for another person to start your life, do it yourself.

  1. Do Things by Yourself

This sounds obvious, but a lot of people are afraid to do things by themselves. Go to the movies. Have a meal. Go shopping. It’s going to be okay; you will survive. The more you do things alone, the easier it will become to live the single life in style.

  1. Take It Easy on Yourself

This one is hard because there are times you’ll feel hopeless. There will be days when you will be disappointed. You may often feel lonely, but don’t lose hope. Just put one foot in front of the other until the storm passes. Keep yourself busy and soon, things will get better for you.

  1. Travel Alone

It’s may seem weird at first, but once the weirdness washes away, traveling alone becomes a freedom you don’t often have. You get to be on your own schedule and have the chance to spend as much time as you want doing whatever you want to do, all while being in a new place. So, explore and create an adventure in your new single life.

  1. Establish a Strong Sense of Self-Awareness

Therapy and counseling can help you sort through your feelings and past experiences, so use it to figure out what you want. What are your dreams, goals, desires and setbacks? Explore the little nervous things you do and why you do them Explore all of it in a safe place. Who are you and what do you need to feel complete? You can’t expect that to come from another person since that’s all on you. Own it.

  1. Nurture Other Relationships

Family and friends are there through it all. Relationships naturally ebb and flow over time, so enjoy the time you have. Offer your undivided attention to others when you are with them, which is a good rule in general, single or otherwise.
