Single this New Years’?

By  |  0 Comments


New years’ is one of the holidays where you are expected to be surrounded by a lot of people, especially the loved ones. So if you are literally single this new year’s or just spending it with yourselves (like always), its time you spun a wheel and tried something absolutely different and new this year.

New years’ is a time for you to reflect on the year that has passed by and see what changes can be done and how you would like your life to be different from what it is today. How significantly have you evolved as a person, what are your achievements for the year and of course the all famous “new year resolutions”

Just as a friendly tip the first new year resolution you need to make is to promise yourself to keep the target you plan to achieve as your focus and to stay on track and not let anyone or anything distract you.

I’m going to help you plan a singles new year, trust me it’s not really that bad, you tend to realise that introspection and spending quality time with yourself is essential as sending time with others may be.

  1. Take a Holiday!

Yes! You read that right and no I am not out of mind. Lots of airlines and travel agencies offer great discounts and packages at this time of the year. Grab yourself up and pack your bags, go on that amazing holiday you always wished to go for. Life might surprise you in so many ways. It’s more important to have a good time and spend time enjoying and relishing things you wouldn’t generally with a group of people.

  1. Surround yourself with the things you love.

Just because you are going to be alone on the most important holiday of the year doesn’t mean you have to be miserable too. Buy yourself that lovely wine you enjoy. Grab all those movies you couldn’t watch thorough out the year, this is your chance to do everything you missed out during the year. Surround yourself with your comforts. If there is a dish you absolutely loved that no one could ever make better than your mom then buy the ingredients and make it yourself.

  1. Find others in the same boat

There may be a lot of other friends you may come across who are in the same boat as you. Invite them over, make some dinner, go out and watch a movie together. If not, then just plan a trip together and take off.

  1. Video chat with your friends and family

This is one of the best ways to let go of your loneliness. If you’re alone during the holidays due to family and friends being too far away to get together with, at least you can video chat with them. That way you’ll get a little bit of cheer coming your way, but you won’t have to spend your entire holiday dealing with their traits that send you right over the edge. It’s like having your cake and being able to eat it too! When you’ve had enough of them, simply turn off your computer.

  1. Take up your Hobby

We all have a hobby we only like pursuing solo. Go ahead and spin the wheel. Read a book, go swimming, go out to a party. Even if its not your favourite hobby, do something new and try something exciting. Anything that makes you feel comfortable or not.

  1. Reflect and Introspect

This is the best time of the year to look back and introspect on the al the things that went awfully wrong and all the things that went seemingly right. If you had a bad relationship, think about all the things that went wrong and how it has made you a better person. If you achieved a target that made you happy, try and inculcate the same amount of dedication in your day to day life. Reflect on what you can do to better your current lifestyle. Make a list of the things you would like to change on the outside as well as the inside and work towards achieving them. As you keep completing a task keep rewarding yourself. Be honest to yourself always.

  1. Volunteer

Be a little selfless this year and volunteer to make someone else’s new year better. If you think that being alone on one day of the year is miserable go out and help  and spend time with those who never have anyone to spend their time with. Offer your help to an old aged home, or an orphanage. Spend some time with these people you never know what you might get in return as a blessing. Make a difference.

  1. Count your blessings

By the end of the night count your blessings. You are blessed and though you may be alone this one holiday remind yourself that you have people around you who love you and constantly wish the best for you. End your night by thanking the almighty for everything you have. Don’t be bitter, be forgiving because it is the best quality a person can have.


Treat the holiday just like any other day, it isn’t a big deal if you are alone on the so called “most important” holiday of the year. You spent the most important day with the most important person that is YOURSELF. Being alone doesn’t mean you have to be miserable, enjoy all the quality time you can spend with yourself, because loving yourself is very important.
