Singleness is not as bad as we have been led to believe; in fact, not having a partner by our side is good for physical, mental and emotional health, as shown by several studies.
In 2009, researchers at the University of Utah discovered that women in unhappy marriages are at increased risk of heart attacks and diabetes, derived from the stress and depression that unhappy relationships cause.
In another investigation by the University of Queensland it was demonstrated that those who maintain a stable relationship tend to gain weight because the happiness of the company increases the levels of appetite; In addition, most romantic dates are usually accompanied by a snack or food.
Another point in favor of singleness is that you do not have to deal with a partner who snores. The Better Sleep Council found that 26 percent of the people surveyed had more restful dreams when they slept alone than when they were accompanied.
But if the benefits of singleness do not quite convince you, a study conducted by researchers at the University of Arizona states that, unlike married people, singles have better health conditions.
During three years the life and habits of 79 thousand women were monitored. Those who got married gained weight; those who divorced regained their eating habits and increased their physical activity, while unmarried women remained in their eating habits, did not gain weight and even had a better state of mind.
