You know when you are the only person on the planet who is not a single parent?
You think about that a lot.
So you probably don’t think about it too much, huh?
Well, you’re right.
It might be hard to get out of the mindset of being single and being single in this day and age.
You might not be thinking about it at all.
In fact, you probably think about this more often than you think about things like health care or how much money you have.
And, according to a new survey, you might not even realize it.
Researchers at the University of British Columbia conducted a survey of 6,000 people who were between the ages of 18 and 34.
Of the respondents, a whopping 91% were single parents, and they had been married or in a relationship for at least three years.
They were also generally in good health.
But there were a few notable differences between the two groups.
The first was that, for example, more than three-quarters of the respondents had not been married at the time of the survey.
“In the context of single adults, we expected that we would find higher levels of marital dissatisfaction, but this is not the case,” study author Jessica M. Stacey told Mashable.
“Instead, we found that married single adults who were younger than 30 had lower levels of perceived marital quality and higher levels the perceived level of marital instability,” she added.
Stacey also noted that single people who have experienced the pressures of being married often tend to perceive their marriage as having been better than the one they were married to.
But there’s another factor that researchers are looking at.
It’s a question of how the participants perceived their relationship status and how that status affected how they viewed their health.
A more common reason for a higher level of perceived health concerns was having a young child, according the study.
“We find that children who live with their biological parents have a greater risk of being at increased risk of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease,” Stacey said.
When it comes to perceived health, young children are more likely to be viewed negatively than older children, according Stacey.
And even when they were asked if they were satisfied with their health status, they were more likely than adults to say they were dissatisfied.
These results aren’t the first study to look at this topic.
In 2016, researchers from the University at Buffalo looked at how single parents perceived their health and perceived health in the context “of the stress of parenting,” which can include high levels of conflict.
The researchers found that those who felt that they were not getting adequate health care were less likely to see themselves as happy with their own health.
“We are seeing the impact of stress in a very real way for young adults,” said study co-author and professor of psychology Rebecca Burchill.
“Young adults are experiencing their own personal health challenges, and this is one way they are struggling to find their footing.”
This is one of many issues that researchers want to tackle when it comes the health of adults in our modern society.
So how does it all tie together?
Stacey says that the results may be a bit confusing, but they are actually a lot more simple than you might think.
“It’s very important to recognize that being single is not as bad as you think it is, and it’s not a sign of weakness,” she said.
“If you’re single, you are healthy.
Being single means that you are in a position to have more choices in your life than you would have otherwise.
You are in control of your health.
You have choices about what you can afford to buy.
You can choose to stay home with a sick child.
You could choose to be more active, but those choices can have consequences for your health.”
You may not think about all of these things when you think of your own health, but you should.
And it may not even be that difficult to change your perception of your overall health, according M.J. Deen, M.D. “Being single is an important and powerful message for the public,” she told Mashables.
There are a lot of options in life. “
There is no single life.
There are a lot of options in life.
But the only single life that matters is the one you have chosen.”
