In a world where gender stereotypes are, thankfully, becoming a thing of the past, the average male is finally free to unleash themselves on the world. Traditionally, men who put the extra care and attention into their physical appearance have either been seen as having done so in order to show off their rock-hard physiques for the ladies or as a bold expression of their femininity and sexuality.
Thankfully, this worldview has slipped away. Men are now just as able, and just as likely, to make beautification a part of their day-to-day ritual, for no reason other than a welcome boost in self-esteem. It doesn’t matter what kind of man you are, how you define yourself, or where on the wide spectrum of masculinity you find yourself, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be looking to feel your best wherever you go. However, it doesn’t matter just how much you would like to reinvent yourself, you still need to find a starting point from which to do so. The following health, fashion, and beauty tips are all things that any man can decide to do when they feel that that the time has come to make these changes.
Start a Workout Routine
This is what separates the men from the, well, slightly more muscular men. A workout routine should be at the heart of your efforts to improve your physique and your health. When many people picture a male workout routine, they are imagining a testosterone-fuelled room, filled with various equipment to punch, lift, and swing around the place. In reality, most workout routines are more basic than this. Certainly, if you are new to workouts then you are going to want to start with something a little bit easier. Your workout routine can, and should, develop as time goes by. Don’t try and dive straight into a series of exercises that are going to be too much for you. Have a look here for an example of a good routine for a beginner to get started with. This will introduce you to the world of physical exercise without going overboard.
Yeah, we get it, we really do! It doesn’t how many toxic fumes and cancer-causing death molecules you’re inhaling, smoking is cool. But while the sight of a cigarette dangling lazily from the corner of your lips, upturned in a knowing smile that says “yes, I smoke. And yes, it is damn cool” might look amazing in a black and white photograph, the modern woman tends to be much more discerning. The sad fact is that smoking just isn’t cool anymore. Asides from the fact that it will gradually eat away at your physical wellbeing, smoking can have a serious psychological impact on those who are trying to better themselves. Getting in shape is a tough challenge anyway; you don’t need to add the difficulties of breaking a habit like this on top. One thing that many smokers find to be tremendously helpful as they work to finally break the habit is to use an e-cigarette. E-cigs deliver users the hit of nicotine that their bodies physically crave but do so in the form of a harmless vapour. Grey Haze is one such company who, through their UK ecig store, sell the kits you need to get started with vaping, alongside a selection of flavours to load their devices with.
Start Eating Well
Eating well. It’s like brushing our teeth. On the one hand, we know that to not do so would be incredible and pointlessly foolish, but on the other hand, it’s a very small amount of time that we could otherwise have spent finding the perfect emoji for our latest off-the-cuff thought. Changing to a much better lifestyle and, therefore, getting your mind and body in the best state they can be, is all about making a lot of small changes over a prolonged period of time. Don’t try and immediately put yourself on a brutal diet or Olympiad workout regime. Instead, make small and gradual changes to these three key areas. This way, you will find that big change creeps up on you without you even realising it!
