Why Being Single Can Be Great

Did you go through a rough breakup recently? Maybe you just haven’t met someone, yet. Either way, you’ll be happy to know this isn’t the end.

As a matter of fact, being single can help you become motivated to do things. It can be an extremely enjoyable experience, once you realize all of the fun you can have without a partner there to get in your way. When you’re feeling lonely and down about not being in a relationship, here are a few thoughts you should keep in mind.

Attaining Full Access to Virtually Anything

One of the best aspects of being single is the fact that you get full and total access to the sources of your happiness. Maybe it’s a new episode of your favorite show on television. It comes on every week, and you simply can’t bear to miss it.

As a single person, you won’t have to worry about your partner stealing the remote from you and turning on his own show. After all, you’d probably waited all week long for the episode to air. The last thing you want is to end up missing it altogether.

How about that huge container of ice cream that’s in your freezer? It’s all yours, and you don’t have to share it with anyone. That means it’ll last you for a lot longer, and you’ll even be able to save some money, too.

Discovering Peace and Quiet

If you’re generally a quiet person, being single may suit you exceptionally well. Maybe you don’t mind the extra noise so much, but the constant nagging can certainly get old after a while. It can make you truly long for some peace and quiet.

Not being in a relationship will give you the opportunity to perform activities that require a quiet atmosphere. Meditation is one example. You can meditate in any room at any time of the day without having to worry about being interrupted.

If you’re used to always having someone there with you, this can be like a breath of fresh air. The single life will give you the peace and quiet you desperately crave. What could be better than that?

Moving at Your Own Pace

Another nice aspect about not being in a relationship with someone is that you get to move at your own speed. If you need extra time to get ready before you go out, for instance, you’ve got it. You won’t need to deal with a cranky, impatient partner getting upset with you or rushing you along to finish by a certain time.

Also, you get to decide where you want to go. You won’t have to put up with all those complaints and arguments. No matter how you look at it, it’s a win-win for you each and every time.

Freedom to be Yourself

Being single means you can do whatever you want without the fear of being caught doing it by someone else. Singing in the shower is something you’ve always enjoyed doing, but you’ve become a bit self-conscious about it ever since your partner’s moved in with you. As a single man or woman, you can feel free to sing to your heart’s content without having to worry that you’re being judged for it.

Do you like to dance? Whether you prefer upbeat or slow music, you can dance around inside of your home for as long as you want. The best part about it is that no one will see you doing it.

As you can see, being in a relationship isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be. In fact, being single can truly be a blessing in disguise. Who knew that going solo could actually be so much fun?

5 Reasons Why Getting Fit Will Improve Your Relationship

qtq80-B48bBiGetting fit is not all about getting thinner. In fact, solely focusing on weight loss usually leads to feelings of self deprivation rather than self-improvement. Well-being enhances all areas of life, including relationships. Read on for some great reasons to get moving and get in good condition.

Increased Confidence

Getting in shape and renewing health often leads to a better body image and a boost in confidence levels. Setting and reaching new fitness highs also leads to an increase in courage and determination, and these attributes can’t help but spill over into personal and social dimensions. Hardihood and having much to look forward to bide well for not only physical well-being but also for having the spirit and tenacity to love people hard and well.

Increased Anticipation

Getting fit leads to always having something to look forward to. Being physically active does not have to be expensive or involve a gym membership. Especially when partnering with a loved one, there are many ways to generate new excitement by brainstorming new ways to exercise and spend time together. It can also provide a great reason to get out and explore either the home turf or new travel areas. These experiences forge new memories and bonds, contributing to greater family harmony. Choosing new healthy recipes to make together can also provide something satisfying to look forward to.

Increased Sleep Quantity and Quality

Lack of sleep and poor sleep can lead to daytime dysfunction and negativity. It isn’t always easy to break bad habits and it’s not easy to catch up on lost sleep. Getting active can greatly remedy this situation. Even a regular routine of ten minutes or more of aerobic exercise has a direct impact on sleep quantity and quality. Getting fit also often lessens sicknesses and aches and pains that can interfere with sound sleep patterns.

Increased Happiness Levels

Stress is an all too familiar aspect of life. Exercise helps to combat stress with the release of endorphins and also a chance to free the mind of distractions and even to work through ongoing issues. Having a balanced life usually leads to improved productivity and the ability to handle new situations and to troubleshoot in a calm and creative manner. Getting fit often involves getting a focused outlook on life as well, and this can be increased further by incorporating outdoor exercise and getting some sunshine and fresh air as part of the experience.

Increased Longevity

The longer life goes on and the mind and body are kept in optimal condition, the longer relationships can exist. Instead of an activity to tolerate or see as time lost, exercise can be seen as a way of regaining time.
