Embrace Being Single. Discover a Whole New World.

By: Inter Valley Health Plan





Find yourself suddenly single? Whatever the reason (death, divorce, or personal choice), there’s something to be said for taking the solo flight.

When you spend time alone, you discover things you might not have noticed if you’d had someone with you. An example? How much you enjoy your own company.

If you’re unexpectedly single, make the most of it with these reminders.

Be kind to yourself. Whether your living situation is your choice or not, you are experiencing a pretty big life change. Take it easy on yourself. Give your feelings the space they need without rushing to move on. And remember to take care of yourself the way you would a child or grandchild. With gentleness, good nutrition, exercise and plenty of rest. It’s the kind thing to do.

Find support. Going through the stages of grief is absolutely normal—regardless of how the loss comes into your life. You may find it helpful to surround yourself with supportive people. These could be family or friends—or an official support group. Seek out other single people to enjoy group activities with. If you’re grieving, it’s natural to want some time to yourself to process your feelings of loss. Just make sure you don’t isolate. Get the support you need to help yourself through.

Get outside yourself. One of the best ways to make yourself feel better is to do something nice for someone else. Volunteer at an animal shelter. Help stock shelves at a food bank. Or donate an item to a family in need. You’ll be amazed by how much better this makes you feel. A small gesture can mean a great deal to those less fortunate than you. It also helps your challenges into perspective.
