1. Be your own Santa
Not having to buy someone else a gift or two just means more presents for yourself. And since it’s Christmas, there’s no excuse to hold back, so go on that Sephora shopping spree. It’s the time to get real jolly.
2. Get out there
Don’t have a boyfriend and all your girlfriends are busy hanging with theirs? Don’t sweat it — check out the many festive markets and events happening across the island anyway. Besides, moving as a group always takes waaay longer, and now you can be own time own target.
3. Do something good
There are a lot of people who are in far worse positions. In fact, not having a partner is the last thing on their minds. So why not take this time to do some volunteer work? You’ll not only be spreading some love, but also chalking up karma points.
4. Hit the gym
This is the season where people are extra busy, so the gym will be emptier than usual (always an incentive). Plus, just think about how toned your body will look when the New Year comes around — everyone will be applauding your discipline.
5. Spend time with family
This one’s a given, but do you really do it enough? As it is, you’ve got several commitments on a regular basis (work, gym, hanging with friends and meeting guys off dating apps make up a packed schedule), so why not take this opportunity to just be present around the people who love you the most?
