Being a single woman comes with its own set of challenges. From managing finances to taking care of the home, there are a lot of responsibilities that one needs to juggle. But with the right tips and strategies, it is possible to thrive as a single woman and enjoy homemaking and time management. This article will discuss some useful tips on how to do just that. There’s been so many millennials who’ve returned to traditional values and returned to being stay-at-home moms. I’m not saying you should do so. I’m just saying that Homemaking is not a bad word and you don’t have to wait til you’re married to be someone who makes a home a welcoming atmosphere.
- One of the most important things to remember is that you are not alone. Living alone can bring additional stressors, especially if you suffer from chronic illness. Whether it be friends, family, or a support group, reaching out for extra help can make a big difference in your life. One of the most helpful things you can do is to take a mental health day. Just like everyone else, single women need time to decompress as well. Taking a break from your busy life will make you feel recharged and refreshed.
- Have a routine. Make small changes every day, until you get one. Don’t worry about the big picture if it doesn’t pan out right away. For example, let’s say that you are constantly late in the morning due to waking up way too early for work or worrying too much about what needs to be done later in the day; try setting an alarm on your phone so your wake up time will not fluctuate.
- Clean your house. You heard me. Making your bed, vacuuming your floors is not just for when you’re going to have other people over. A habit of cleaning is not only good for others, but may be very good for your health. Trust me, since I have asthma, a weekly routine of making dust go away is just good sense.
- Cook your food. It’s so easy to just delegate the responsibility to others like Panera Bread.. but if you make your own food, you invest in your health. This is 2023 and even making your own food does not save you from the toxins that were put in the food before they got to the grocery store. So just do your best. As you already know, I try to get the cooking out of the way on Sundays so I can have the rest of my week stress free.
- Take Care of Your Clothes. I have zero sewing skills so I’m not gonna tell you to pull out a Singer and make your own clothes. I also engage in fast fashion and buy alot of clothes. However, taking care of your clothes can make them last longer. Also, iron your clothes. You may think that your job is a casual atmosphere and it doesn’t matter that your shirt is wrinkled. Just trust me on this, it does. Put your best foot forward. You don’t just rep yourself, you rep Jesus.
- Lastly, the greatest skill you can acquire as a single woman is finances. Let’s discuss this more in another blog post.
