Five Unhealthy Habits Of A Single Lady

Hello there! Do you know unhealthy habits exists in singles? Do you know them?

Well, in the last episode of the five unhealthy habits of a single man (If you haven’t read it, please do so here) .

The single phase of a lady’s life is a period where she builds a solid foundation for all she hopes to attain in the future. Raising a building on a faulty foundation through unhealthy habits will cause havoc and wreckage.

We all know that unhealthy habits brings about sicknesses and diseases but how can we prevent them if we do not know what they are? In this episode, we will get to know what the unhealthy habits of a single lady are so she can prevent them and fully come into manifestation of the premium version of who she ought to be.

1. Relaxed And Comfortable with Being On the Average

Being on the average while feeling relaxed about it will only keep you less amazing. Average ladies hardly reach the height of success because they feel comfortable with everything around them. They are like balloons without air, souls without positive ambitions, never wanting to expand.

They prefer doing small and find it extremely exciting creating fantasies in their heads.

Dear Single lady, do you have these unhealthy habits?

They forget that nothing moves without a push. Remember Newton’s first Law of motion which states that every object will remain at rest or in uniform motion in a straight line unless compelled to change its state by the action of an external force. 

In the past and also in present times, there has and there is a common narrative which keeps flying around -encouraging ladies to be on the average or less than average so that they won’t be a scare to the men around them. This is a very wrong perspective. Healthy single men with healthy habits desire women who have a strong drive spiritually, mentally, socially, physically, financially, etc.

You were created for more, don’t settle for less. From the wise words of Steve Jobs,

Never Settle for Average.

2. Flirting With Multiple Guys

Flirting has become a common trend amongst several ladies in this present age. Many ladies claim they aren’t in relationships but are comfortable in leading men on through different means. Others are in committed relationships but find it okay to be flirting around. They claim they aren’t intimate with these men but many are emotionally attached because of the gifts and attention they receive.

Although, some men with unhealthy habits don’t pay attention to their partners which makes them feel unloved and unwanted. But that isn’t a good excuse to flirt around. It is better to end a relationship you aren’t satisfied with than double date. The latter will give you more consequences you never bargained for.

3. Busy Body In Other Men’s Duties

Men in this aspect includes wo-Men and Men alike. Single ladies who do not have anything tangible doing get themselves busy. But the question is, what are they busy doing? Some get busy discussing other people’s lives forgetting that they have their own lives to live and enjoy. They always remember to live the lives of others.

Look at the words of Henry Thomas Buckle:

Buckle, great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people.

Another place some ladies get themselves busy is, the house of men they aren’t married to. They become full time house girls/ladies and nannies in there.

Are you assuming roles you aren’t meant to assume?

This ought never to be so. These men have hands to do whatever they wish being done in their apartments and if they wish not to do it themselves, they can employ appropriate staffs.

4. Spending Recklessly

According to an old saying, Women usually love what they buy, yet hate two-thirds of what is in their closets.  How true is this? I think this is a fact.

We must bear in mind that sooner than later, a whole lot of responsibilities will begin springing forth, and the best way to be prepared is to save or invest. Less than fifty percent or more of ladies feel the men must be sole providers. Therefore, they become unnecessarily relaxed in how they spend leading to a reckless way of living.

Are you shopping recklessly?

One of the greatest women of our time, Oprah Winfrey once said that she doesn’t remember the last time she went to the bank. She hardly touches what’s in there. She further more said and I quote,

You enjoy everything a lot more when you are not overreaching. This is how you know you’ve shopped smart: You bring home a purchase, there’s not a tinge of remorse, and whatever you got feels better to you ten days later than it did when you first bought it.

Never forget this, life is full of times and seasons. Some seasons are wet, others dry. Therefore, when next you feel like spending recklessly, think of the future.

5. Unhealthy Eating And Lack of Personal Hygiene

There is a common saying that goes thus: If you don’t know how to take care of yourself, how would you take care of others?

A healthy lifestyle goes beyond what we see, it begins from within. We do not live healthily because we want to attract good people. We must learn to live healthier lives so as to have a good life. Healthy eating habits must be embraced. Less of junks and more of fruits to maintain a healthy body .

Regular food?

Proper and regular care of our underwear and outer wears should be cultivated.

What last did you do your laundry?

Remember what’s inside reflects on the outside.

Bonus Point: Not Having Great Fun.
As a single lady, do you know you can have great fun without being too extreme? Take yourself on a date, go on an adventure, take road trips alone or with friends, read interesting books or join a reading club. Plan a get together with friends and family, socialise wisely and build a meaningful life around yourself outside your workspace.

Create a good social life!

    Really great tips there! I for one believe that as a single lady when you get occupied with purpose you don’t even notice that you’re single (if you know what I mean). There won’t be time to flirt. In fact, there were times I was literally praying that some guys who were showing some signs (winks) wouldn’t ask me out, not because they’re bad or something, I just wasn’t ready for a relationship neither did I want to lead anyone on. Taking the risk of having my comment ‘scrolled-past’ because of its length, I’d like to add that sometimes we singles might crave for some male attention which I later discovered is natural, it takes some really Spirit filled and matured ladies to not fall for the temptation of flirting a little to gain some free attention without all the commitment strings attached.
