7 Reasons to LOVE being single for the Holidays!
1. Quality Time with Friends and Family
This is a wonderful time to deepen the connection with those that are already in your life! Instead of focusing on why you’re oh-so-alone, why don’t you put more energy into relationships with those that you already love!? Or the family members that you only see once a year!?
You’re already surrounded by loved ones. So stop feeling sorry for yourself and have a great time with those amazing people that already love and adore you, baby!
2. Pamper Yo’self
And that’s an order!
You have no significant other to spend money on in the form of gifts, booze, dinners, etc.
So save that money and spend it on you!
Have you had your eye on something special for you for a while? Well NOW is the perfect time to get yourself those pair of shoes, or new phone or put the money aside for a trip. You get the idea!
On a side note – If you are stressing that you’re alone, NOW is the time to learn these 3 ways to become Irresistible.
3. Work it out, baby
Instead of moping around feeling sorry for yourself, use your free time to work out! Get in shape. Get in better shape! Head to the gym with your single girlfriends instead of having another martini after work.
This is the perfect time to actually utilize your free time towards something productive….like taking care of that beautiful body of yours!
4. Socialize and Be Merry
When you’re single….you get to meet MORE people! So get out there and socialize because you’re not going to be single forever. Enjoy the fact that you can unabashedly meet and flirt with everyone at the party (until you find out they are taken, of course).
And on another side note, you actually don’t have to worry about fights with your significant other. And for some reason, they seem to come up a lot during the holidays! Fights about money, fights about family, fights about who has to shovel this time, etc…
5. Tell peeps you’re single
For some reason, during the holidays us coupled people like to set up our single friends! So this is great time to announce to the world that you’re single. And that you’re totally open to being set up on blind dates. And that you’d totally love to tag along with couples to their functions. You’d be amazing at how FULL your social calendar can become!
One Single Year – one of my married friends invited me to their Jewish family holiday Hanukkah party! It was so much fun and totally amazing! I learned so much. I ate new food. I got hit on by 80 year old uncles. AND I didn’t necessarily have to worry about being polite to the snobby aunt that no-one could stand to be around, because they weren’t my family!
Ha! You just never know what will happen when you’re open to tagging along to everyone else’s events!
6. Start your Resolutions Early
Want to read 50 books next year? Start making the list and buying the books.
Resolve to get yourself to the gym 5 days a week? Start going now!
Want to take the trip of a lifetime? Start saving now and looking up flights!
You get the idea. Use this extra time to start working on you and what makes you happy and feel fulfilled in life. Instead of focusing on the lack and what you don’t have.
Which is pretty much the fastest way to feel bad about yourself and get stuck in your misery.
7. Holiday Guilty Pleasures
I once ate an entire pumpkin pie in one sitting in high school.
And I’ve done it again since.
Because I LOVE pumpkin pie.
And I had no one to share it with.
Now I’m not saying you should sit around and stuff your face with bonbons.
But the point I’m trying to make is that if you want to sit around in comfy pajamas all weekend and watch the Hallmark channel holiday movie marathon for 36 hours straight…
Well you can do just that, now can’t you?
And if you’re obsessed with holiday music, well you can sing ‘Single Bells, Single Bells’ at the top of your lungs while drinking a bottle (or two) of wine on Christmas Eve, now can’t you???
8. In Laws.
Seriously. Need I elaborate more on that bonus reason?
