How to Consciously Leave Your Lazy Era

There’s no rule anywhere that says that your single life must be a boring life. 

For some people, their singleness is that period when they are waiting to get a partner. 

For others, singleness is the life they have chosen. 

Whichever category you are in, the days when you are single can be such a time of your life. 

You are not in any way robbed of your independence. 

You’re not necessarily responsible to/for anyone. 

It is just you and your choices.

Such a liberating time. 

But some people like to live their singlehood in misery. 

I said “like” because it is a choice they make – consciously or unconsciously. 

All they do is center their life and focus on finding a partner. 

The choice they make, their growth plans, and everything they do. 

If you ask them why, you’ll find out that their entire being is wrapped around finding a partner. 

And it shouldn’t be so. 

The only way to be in a healthy relationship is by being a healthy and complete person. 

Knowing and appreciating your independence and building your own life outside of a relationship. 

There are so many things you can do as a single person that would help you live the healthy life that you deserve, and you shouldn’t miss out on them just because you are in desperate search of a partner.

You’re able to help people who actually need your help, show love to the poor and needy, and help the community be a better place.

You can’t possibly be doing something wrong trying to keep fit. 

And no matter how people try to look at it, you cannot be keeping for others. 

You do it for yourself, and you’re able to build good physical health and a sound mind. 

8. Pamper Yourself

Whatever treat you will give your partner in a relationship, you are also deserving of it. 

So give yourself a treat or something you love.

Being single doesn’t mean you should be alone. 

So don’t be afraid to go to concerts, movies, or festivals by yourself. 

You get to enjoy events on your own terms, without having to coordinate with others.

 If you do not want to. 

 

10. Read More

The wider you read, the wider your perception of the world. 

People who read should be the most powerful people on earth. 

Because when they read, they access the minds of intelligent people. 

And the more interactions they have with intelligent minds, the more intelligent and powerful they become. 

So pick up a book you’ve been meaning to read or explore a new genre. 

When you read, you have the opportunity to escape and unwind.

 

11. Start a Side Hustle

I hear that people who are wealthy do not earn from one source of income.

You must learn to spread your net far and wide if you want to achieve a great catch. 

You see that skill you learned sometimes back?

It doesn’t have to go to waste. 

Use time to put what you learn into practice and earn extra money.

12. Meditate

Meditation helps you to clear your mind and improve your focus. 

If you are attentive, you’ll discover that your mind is always busy like a marketplace.

With thoughts going on every second. 

But when you meditate, you are able to collect all your thoughts and filter them – retaining the ones you’ll keep and disposing of the others.

Meditation also helps to reduce stress and make you more aware of your thoughts and feelings.

 

13. Redecorate Your Space

There’s absolutely no reason why you should live in a boring space. 

This is especially true when you live alone and can make a decision regarding how you want your space to look. 

Make your home a reflection of you. Redecorate a room, rearrange furniture, or add some new décor to create a space you love.

You can also bring in bedroom plants, which will not only beautify your space but also improve your living conditions and well-being. 

14. Go on a Road Trip

You don’t really need a destination in mind; just pack your bags and hit the open road. 

The idea is to experience the excitement that comes with being on the road and the fresh air if you decide to let the air conditioner rest. 

 

15. Learn Cooking

The woman from Africa who recently won the Guinness World Record for the longest hour of cooking was said to have prepared 150 recipes. 

How many recipes do you currently know?

So there’s always something new and exciting to learn with cooking. 

Away from learning something new, cooking is a fun and therapeutic activity. 

And you get to enjoy delicious meals prepared just the way you want. 

 

16. Spend Time in Nature

When we look around us, it is evident that man was made for nature, and nature for man.

Beginning with how we need each other to stay healthy and survive. 

So when you’re alone, you can consider spending some time with nature. 

Go hiking, camping, or just take a walk in the park. 

Spending time with nature can be incredibly rejuvenating; it allows you to disconnect from the stress you face every day. 

17. Make New Friends

Someone said that we have not met all the people who would love us yet, and I totally agree. 

You may have had nasty experiences with people in the past—all of us have, in one way or another. 

But those experiences should not make you withdraw and avoid people. 

Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and make new friends. 

There’s still someone out there who would love you faithfully. 

Attend social events, join online communities, or you can just start a conversation with a random person.

 

18. Pursue Your Career Goals

You can take courses to improve your skills, network with professionals in your field, and set goals for your future.

19. Practice Self-Reflection

One more thing you can do while you’re single is self-reflection. 

When you sit to reflect on your life, it is like taking stock or balancing books.

You are able to see areas where you’re doing well and areas where you need improvement. 

You can decide what part of your life is an asset and what parts are liabilities.

You can actually get a journal where you can record your daily life. 

This will help you with your seasonal self-appraisal.

 

There are several other things you can do as a single person. 

But we’ve listed these 19, and we hope that you have fun and find fulfillment with them.
