Not trying to brag, but there are quite a few benefits of being childfree. For the sake of time and sparing those with short attention spans, we'll discuss just a few.
Before we get started, here's a short disclaimer: BY NO MEANS does this blog attempt to persuade readers into pursing a childfree lifestyle. The aim is to AFFIRM and reassure those who have already made a choice to become (and remain) childfree.
Ok, let's get started, shall we? There are many benefits to being childfree which include:
More Time and Freedom
This is pretty obvious, of course. However, with the extra time we're afforded, childfree people have the opportunity to sleep in more, devote more time to exercise, and journal - which all contribute to a healthier mindset and overall well-being. Having more time also allows us to spend it wisely, which brings us to the next point...
The Ability To Give Back More
Yes, we probably have the financial means give back and contribute to worthy causes in that aspect. However, having extra time also affords childfree people the opportunity to volunteer at local hospitals, schools, or community events. These are all very fulfilling activities, and you should find something that works for you and your schedule.
I'm sure you've taken time to come to the conclusion that you don't want children. As mentioned in a previous blog, this isn't something that we just "stumble upon." A huge benefit of being childfree - aside from the superficial things - is knowing that we confidently chose to deviate against societal "norms" and make a decision that works for us! Don't you agree?
All in all, there are SO many benefits to being childfree. If you'd like to share anything else, please do so in the comments!
