6 Self-Care Tips for Men
There should be so much more to your self-care efforts than just showering, and shaving and trimming.
Remember that any steps you take now to look after yourself mean you’re taking care of future you, too.
1. Find a Healthy Work-Life Balance
It’s great if you’re passionate about your job, but you need to occasionally switch off. In today’s always-on world, it’s important to give yourself a break every now and again.
Commit to leaving the office on time and switching your work email notifications off for a few evenings each week. Focusing on something else instead, such as reading a book, unwinding with a movie or cooking a nutritious meal from scratch to help reset your mind ready for the next day, and you might even find that you sleep better.
2. Look Out for Signs of Stress and Burnout
Learn to recognise your stress triggers and signs of burnout, and take action when you notice them.
Signs could include tensing your shoulders, clenching your jaw, grinding your teeth in your sleep, or a sense of fatigue that you can’t shake off.
If you spot any of these, acknowledge that it’s time to take a step back; go to bed early, turn your phone off for the evening, go for a run, or just spend time with your loved ones.
Different types of self-care will help different types of people – take the time to discover what works for you.
3. Get Enough Sleep
Your body and mind can’t function properly on too little sleep. Let your brain recharge and refresh by making sleep a priority, especially when you’re feeling stressed or burnt out.
Get into a bedtime routine if you find it difficult to nod off. Set yourself a screen ban for at least half an hour before the time you’d like to go to sleep, have a warm milky drink or chamomile tea before bed, and consider trying a pillow spray featuring calming lavender.
4. Nourish Yourself from the Inside Out
Self-care needs to start from the inside out. Be mindful of what you’re eating and drinking, as this can have a huge impact on how much energy you have and how you feel about yourself.
Staying hydrated is especially important – it’s good for everything from your digestion to helping your razor glide across your skin more easily when you’re shaving, so aim for the recommended eight glasses a day.
5. Protect Yourself from the Sun
Sun damage can age your skin massively, so try to get into the habit of wearing sunscreen on your face every single day – even in the UK, and even in winter. This is also important for avoiding unfortunate tan lines in your beard area if you regularly change up your facial hair!
6. Make Time for Yourself, Every Day
Modern life is so busy that it can be easy to forget to make time for ourselves. Self-care can be as simple as making a little time for yourself every day.
This could be spending half an hour in the gym, listening to an uplifting podcast on your commute, or just spending five minutes with your own thoughts while you shave in the morning.
And if you want a real treat to start your day, use the Gillette Heated Razor to give yourself a proper pamper that will feel just like you’re getting a hot towel shave – you deserve it.
