Waiting for Love? Here’s How to Take Care of Yourself in the Meantime
For single, Christian women the journey of finding the right partner is long and arduous. Christian online forums and advice columns all send the same message: Stay patient – it’s better to remain single than to settle for someone with whom you don’t really have any chemistry. As a lady in waiting, it’s easy to lose focus of what is important while you search for your dream man.
If you’ve been searching for your very own fairy-tale romance, you will understand just how exhausting the process for a single Christian woman is. There are, however, a few steps you can take towards personal growth and happiness while on the lookout for love. Just because you are searching for your ideal partner does not mean that you need to place the rest of your life on hold. If you find that you’ve been neglecting yourself lately, here are some ideas on how to take care of yourself while in the dating game.
Enjoy Some Personal Time
Between busy jobs, family, friends, church, and dating, it may prove difficult as a single, Christian lady to spare some time for yourself. Personal time can be any relaxed activity in which you feel comfortable enough to unwind – this can mean watching your favourite movie, reading a book or doing some gardening. This time can be goal-driven, which means that you deliberately use a slot of your day to introspect and take stock of what is happening in your life. Some women find that writing in a diary or expressing their feelings through a creative project helps them refocus their goals and aspirations in life.
Pamper Your Mind, Body and Soul
Long bubble baths with a glass of wine aren’t the only way to pamper yourself – doing anything that revitalises the senses and releases endorphins is an excellent way to de-stress. Taking up a new form of exercise, going on a girls’ night out, or simply getting a new haircut are small changes that make a big difference.
Travel to Your Heart’s Content
If the wanderlust bug hasn’t bit you yet, then you haven’t explored enough beautiful places that speak to your soul. Travelling is a wonderful way to stay present in the moment, rediscover your passions in life, and gain a bucketload of life experience in a designated amount of time.
Do Something You’ve Never Tried before.
Life moves forward, not backwards – so you might as well make use of that momentum to do something worthwhile. People who stagnate ultimately diminish their self-growth and lose confidence little by little. Expanding your comfort zone might be a bit frightening at first, but in the end, you’ll be glad you did it. Trying something new doesn’t need to be drastic, either. It can be as easy as volunteering at an animal shelter or attending a cooking class.
For Christian women, being single shouldn’t be seen as something terrible – it is the opportune time to reinvent yourself. If you are still looking for Mr Right, Perfect Strangers may be the dating service to help you, for more information, register with us online today.
