Taking (self)care of you
Many men, and their significant others, believe that they could dedicate a little more time to their self-care and grooming routines. Sometimes getting out of bed, splashing your face with water, and putting a hat on can do the trick; however, most would agree that some of us could be putting a little more work into our physical and mental health through self-care. Small efforts like moisturising, shaving and styling your hair can go a long way in improving your day-to-day well-being and raising your confidence.
There are ample ways to improve your self-care and grooming routines through attainable, affordable products that only take seconds to minutes to implement. Read about the benefits of some of these products and, if you haven’t already, get yourself to the store and start revamping your morning routine!
Maybe you’ve already been taking advantage of some of these products. Maybe you’ve never even heard of them, or maybe you’ve been hearing about them and have wanted to try them for some time now. There is no need to wait any longer!
It’s time for all men to prioritise their own physical and mental health through acts of self-care. Remember to always put yourself first with a few minutes each day, and you’ll begin to see your style improve and a spark in your spirit. Whether you’re going to work, going to the gym, or nowhere at all, it’s important that you feel good about yourself and the way that you look.
Now, here are a few of our most valued tips to take care of YOU and your well-being:
Positive Self-Talk: Work at counteracting the negative critic in your head with positive language. You’re the sh*t, remember that.
Set Goals: Nothing anchors you more than planning goals that mean something to you personally, and nothing feels better than achieving them. Plus, remember you totally get to reward yourself when you do.
Groom like a pro: For our bearded brothers, we recommend keeping it neat with a Beard Tamer. If you shave, try taking up the traditional method with a puck, bowl and brush. For everyone above and in between, stay clean and fresh with Valor organic soap and our non-toxic, natural Pit Stop deodorant. You’ll feel the difference a little grooming can do.
Spend your time with like-minded people: We’re not suggesting you drop your best mate, but sometimes we do grow apart from our original crew and it’s important to find people you connect with. The best way to find people with similar interests is no doubt by taking up a hobby and getting amongst it by joining a local group.
Ask for help when you need it: Don’t feel like you have to take the whole weight of the world on your shoulders. There are awesome resources available to everyone for a reason – because most of us will need them at some point in our lives. Sourcing help is how we move forward and improve ourselves.
Remember though, Rome wasn’t built in a day, so just be mindful of being as consistent as possible.
