How To Be Happy Being Single

Kaitlin Kaupas, Special Reports Editor

Nowadays people look at relationships as though if you’re not in a relationship you can’t be happy. There are many reasons in the world to be happy not just if you’re in a relationship. Learning to be happy when single is important and some ways to help include:

Find a hobby

Find something that interests you and pursue it. Find something you’re passionate about and go do it.  Finding a hobby is a great way to keep yourself busy and happy. It can also help with friendships.

Focus on yourself

A lot of times we see people in relationships and it makes us upset. You have to stop concerning yourself with others and just focus on yourself. Worry about you and no one else.

Be thankful

Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, focus on what you do have. Everyone has something to be thankful for. The more you focus on what you have instead of what you don’t have the happier you’ll be.

Hang out with friends

Studies have shown that the more you hang out with friends the happier you will be. Spending time with friends will make you forget about things and just let you have a good time.

Stay in the present and be positive

When you focus on something out of the present it will be even harder to be happy. Forget about the past because it’s over and there’s nothing you can do about it now and don’t worry about the future because it’s not here yet. Focus on the present and nothing else. Also, in order to be happy you have to stay positive. When you’re positive, positive things will happen.
