Resolve to look sharper than ever before…
2017 has almost come to an end. This means it’s time to evaluate 2017’s resolutions – and, of course, make new ones for 2018.
– If you haven’t already made a list of resolutions for 2018, just keep on reading and get inspired by the 10 Best New Year’s Resolutions for 2018 that with guarantee will make you look and feel sharper than ever!
Care more for your face
The days when the unisex soap bar was all your face needed is long gone if this was ever really something your face needed in the first place. Most regular soap bars and shower gels stripe your skin of important oils and leave your face flaky, feeling like sandpaper – and that’s never a good look, bro!
Instead, throw the soap bar away and use a large pea-size amount of foaming face wash or mild cleansing gel to remove dirt from your face while still retaining moisture and do this twice a day – morning and evening – before finishing off with the right moisturizer.
And nope – moisturizing is not just for women. It’s crucial! Moisturizing your face is essential to keep it looking and feeling fresh and healthy – you’ll thank us a few years from now when you’re not looking like an old bag of potatoes.
Get a new hairstyle
A new year is perfect for trying out a new hairstyle! Maybe 2018 should be the year where you finally land that perfect haircut? Just follow these 4 steps and you’ll have the hottest hair in 2018:
1. Come prepared: Do your homework and look for hair inspiration online – check out celebrity runways, catwalks and guides about what’s hot and what’s not
2. Be aware of your current hairstyle – and type: Long, medium, short? Curly, straight or maybe something completely unruly?
3. Know your limitations: Don’t strive for high-maintenance and hours of styling if you don’t really have the time or energy to do this every morning…
4. Become best friends with your barber or hairdresser: Let them give their advice on what’s possible, what’s not and what suits you and your face shape
Become a man of quality – not quantity
This resolution should be quite a no-brainer: Before rushing out and investing in that latest tartan trend, consider whether or not you’ve actually covered the basics?
Instead of being a slave of the constantly changing fashion trends, buy those black chinos that go with everything or invest in one or more classic Ralph Lauren Oxford shirt that can be dressed up and down depending on the occasion.
It’s very simple: Splurge on quality basics and save on seasonal trends and tendencies.
Whether your shopping for pants, wrist watches or even sucks, be conscious that these come from companies and brands who focus on quality and manufacture their products to last.
Pull the plug for a while
Life is what’s happening when you’re busy scrolling through Facebook and Instagram…
Turn off your phone, unplug the Wifi and take the time to go for a walk, read a book or spend some completely undisturbed quality time with friends and family.
– Actually, it doesn’t really matter WHAT you do, as long as you take your face away from the screen for 15 minutes a day and just enjoy being offline.
Travel somewhere new…
Most men dream of going somewhere new and unknown. It’s an extremely easy resolution to make but it’s also one of the most difficult to keep as well.
Traveling is often an expensive affair and going somewhere completely unfamiliar can be a bit overwhelming – but it is totally worth it!
Aside from experiencing different cultures and seeing some of the world’s most beautiful scapes, you are also guaranteed to learn so much more about yourself than you could ever dream of when booking the trip from the comfort of your own home.
Save those money, boy!
It’s easy (and fun..) to use all your money on expensive clothing, delicious food and nights out with the boys.
However, this year we encourage you to be more mindful of your spending and consider investing more in your future.
Treat yourself better
We get it – you work hard and party even harder. But remember to take care of yourself – also on the inside!
Make it a resolution to treat yourself a bit better this year. This means steering away from unhealthy, greasy junk food when possible and making homemade food your go-too instead.
– We know that cooking real food takes time, effort and skill, but you’ll be a better, healthier man for doing it.
But the food area is probably not the only place that needs a resolution. Chances are, you’re not sleeping enough either. So make it a resolution to get your full 8 every night and when you think you’ve slept enough, take a nap!
Go get that workout
Following the string of thought presented in the above-mentioned resolution: GO GET that gym membership you’ve talked about all 2017!
Focus on being healthy and happy in the New Year, because you sure as h*.. didn’t do anything about it last year…. Did you? Make 2018 the year you’re saying goodbye to that dad bod for good!
Be on time
Your time is valuable. The same goes for other people’s. Make it your mission to be early rather than late – just by 5 minutes. We promise you, it’ll be much appreciated.
Step up your game
The final resolution is to step up your game in 2018! Starting out on New Year’s Eve with a small, but extremely stylish detail… The Bow Tie.
A bow tie is perfect for any man who likes to stand out among his peers at the biggest party of the year and if you don’t how to tie one, you need to learn ASAP:
Last but not least, remember that you don’t need a new year to make changes in your life. Strive to be a new and improved version of yourself every single day and focus on changing the parts of your life you’re not satisfied with!
