Illustrator Perfectly Captures The Beauty Of Living Alone.

Back in the day, being a single woman living alone was considered extremely taboo. Women were expected to find a husband, settle down to their wifely duties, and begin to have children. Thankfully, times have changed. Women are now taking the world by force. They're waiting longer to get married, establishing a career, and living independently. Living alone can give you a sense of freedom that you can't necessarily achieve while living with a significant other.

Illustrator Yaoyao Ma Van As shows a beautiful perspective into the life of the single woman with these incredible paintings.

Everyone wakes up hungry in the middle of the night.

When you live alone, you can eat that huge piece of chocolate cake without the judgmental glares. No need to count those extra calories.

Meditation is a great way to relieve stress in your body and mind.

It allows you to take that quiet time to clear your mind after a hectic day at work. When you live alone, there's no need to worry about distractions, and it allows you to meditate in peace.

Everyone needs alone time.

Solitude gives your brain time to download and process everything that's happening in your life. When you live with a significant other, this vital time can be extremely difficult to get.

The little things in life are what bring us the most smiles.

Smiling helps produce the happy chemicals in your brain, called endorphins. So, take your fur babies to the park, or spend some quality time watching the sunset; it's good for you.

Spending time in nature is another great way to relieve stress.

It's valued time away from the pressures of daily life or social media. If you like photography, taking a nature walk is a great way to get in tune with your creative side.
