How To Be Happy Being Single


Okay, so this may sound strange coming from me but I'm actually pretty excited to write this post and pretty excited to see what you guys think of it. For starters, I don't usually consider myself to be the 'single' type, I've always sought solace in a relationship, but I'm using this as an excuse to really create my best life so I'm offering you guys a few tips and writing down advice to myself on how to be happy staying single.

Here are five simple ways you can be happy being single.

1) Pursue your favourite hobby.

I'm already pursuing mine and that's blogging but I've taken up a whole bunch of side loves this past year including poetry, painting and more. Make the effort to pursue your favourite hobby and you'll find you have no time to think about whether or not your single, check out my ten new hobby ideas for 2019 blog post for some ideas.

2) Surround yourself with good friends.

Having good people around you is always a good thing and it doesn't necessarily have to be everyday, so long as you know you have people you can call on when you either need support or want to spend time in their company them then you're okay.

3) Value your family.

You're stuck with them and this past year my family have been my absolute rocks, so make sure you connect yourself with your family unit.

4) Listen to new music.

For me, I attach songs very closely with memories so in order to move forward, the best thing for me to do was listen to new music. Of course I still revisit my favourite songs but now you'll find me listening to a bunch of stuff a year ago I'd never even heard of.

5) Make a Bucket Lists of things to do in the next year.

I'm currently writing one for me to do up until age of twenty five, or until I read my letter to my future self, and it's full of fun things to do before I reach that age. This helps me looking forward and keeps me motivated to live my best life.

That's all for this blog post, if you have any tips you'd like to share in the comments section please feel free to do so.

  1. Hello, I'm 24 and I've been single all my life. Most of the time, I follow these steps that you've highlighted on this here post, and I'm satisfied with being single (not that there aren't those days when I feel a little lonely.) For me, the key word is activity and doing things that I enjoy just to be pleased with myself.

    And as for my blog, here's a link.

  2. I feel like far too many people get so lost in their relationships that they loose touch of who they are entirely. Being single is a great chance to get in touch with your genuine self.

  5. I agree with all of these! I'm actually really glad that I'm single this year because I have so many other things that I want to focus on. I've been able to work on my blog and other hobbies while strengthening my relationships with friends and family.

  6. These are great tips. Especially about the family. At the end of the day, your family is the most important treasure you will ever have, and they are yours forever. Make sure you nurture that relationship. I love being single !!


  7. You put together a great list. I especially like your point on strengthening family relationships. We can't change our family, but we can change how we interact with them and you are right sometimes we need our rock.
    During my single years, I realized when I got into a relationship I would stop doing all the things I loved and put everything into the relationship. Not only was it unhealthy for me, it was suffocating for the other person. Kind of hard to admit this now...but it's important. When I met my one-day-to-be-husband. I had decided I needed to keep doing the things I enjoyed and remain a balanced person. I told him I wouldn't be able to hang out every night because I liked going to the gym and I liked to go alone (still do).I also didn't invite him to girls night (I had friends who would). Keeping space was the best decision I ever made. It allowed time to remain myself while making room for someone else and it helped my significant other know he could be himself.


  8. These are really great tips! A lot of people tend to feel lost and alone when they're single and it's important to change that. I love your point about friends and family! Partners may come and go but true friends and relatives will always be there for us.

  9. I completely agree! Being single has gave me MY time back & allowed me to learn so much about myself. I've got back in to doing things that I love doing & got a new perspective on what is important that I'll take forward in to my next relationship. Good advice! X
