Those of you with raised hands, congratulations, you are winning at life. If it's already got a ring on it, tough luck.
Generally, your physical health is going to be better when you're on your own. According to their research, an English survey showed that of all the people in the UK who aren't getting enough exercise, 73% of them are married.
Losing weight in general is more challenging if you're in a marriage — all those nights sitting there staring into each other's eyes are taking their toll on your glutes.And it's not all about your physical wellbeing.
Singletons have greater job satisfaction, apparently and unattached women in particular, so their research goes. Single people and married people have roughly the same amount of close friends, but unmarried women tend to be more concerned with women's welfare in general.
Being single is better for some people than others, like if you're conflict-averse. Also, if you're scared of being single, you're more likely to settle with an unsatisfactory partner.
As we know, your relationship with you is going to be the one that lasts the longest, so Happify has also given handy hints for how to best make use of your single existence. Like, being generous is good for you — research shows spending on others makes you feel better than spending on yourself.
So buy your friend a coffee and clink your cups to living a healthy, happy life — single or not.
Single and ready to mingle? Or are you already taken? Either way, one important bit of advice from me: always bring condoms and keep playing it safe!
