“Don’t base your decisions on the advice of those who don’t have to deal with the results.”

~Anonymous

 

As much you try to apply the numerous logic that others and life throw at you when you are feeling low, nothing seems to work out. All the affirmations and the strategies aimed at bringing up oneself and motivating to feel better – they all fail. It is not always women who feel low, men too have both ups and down in life that takes them on a roller coaster ride of being low and excited in the various situations. In fact, women are the ones who know how to express their feelings but the dudes find it quite difficult holding on too strong which results in feeling low.

Talking about advice, which definitely keeps coming in from all the ends but all aren’t as useful as they should be. It is being peaceful within that can help someone come back to the surface with a bang.

“Be positive” is the new way to tell someone that everything will be okay and also to motivate them and cheer them up. The truth is – it doesn’t work! It never did and it will never help anyone who is already preoccupied with other things and thoughts. It is more or less telling someone that you should feel better now because I have motivated you quite a lot. And it’s downright annoying and useless to be told it again.

Now the question is – if being positive isn’t the right advice when someone is feeling low, what should be done?

Don’t talk about it a lot

It is like reliving the stressful moment again and again when you talk about it to not one or two but a number of people. Talk about it to those who can actually provide a solution to the problem rather than listening, giving not-so-useful advice and spreading the word like wildfire among others. So, it is better to keep it to limited people who matter.

 

Choose between fight or fly

When you/someone is in a bad mood and feeling really low, there are a thousand things constantly going in your head. From how to feel energetic to should I stay the same with the same mood, everything keeps on hitting your head making you more confused. Now you have to segregate the thoughts crawling in your head into – whether you want to fight or flight from the problem. The flight mode works just like your smartphone does. It blocks all the access to calls, messages, and ways for others to reach to you. It is a temporary method to run from the problems. Hence, fighting and overcoming is what you must look out for.

 

Accepting what comes to you – but letting go

When you are in the flight mode, you know  that someday or the other you have to come to the society and family set up. It would be useless to stay aloof from others. You must let anything that comes to you come, but make sure you let go of the things that bring sadness in your life. In fact, you cannot stop the negativity to flow in but you always have the option to let go of things. Do that!!

 

Dress well to keep yourself content

When you shop, things around you get brighter! You must have heard this before because this is absolutely true. When you pay attention to yourself, pamper yourself with handsome outfits, pleasing men’s underwear, complementing accessories, you feel good from within. You should indulge in this when skies turn gray for you.

 

Meditation helps you focus on life

It was just yesterday that I bought myself a pair of denim jeans and after a few washes it started to wear off and finally within a month, it came down to pieces. You might say that it was the fabric that was of bad quality but I wouldn’t put the entire blame on the fabric. It was my fault too because I couldn’t take care of it and it didn’t last long.

 

Likewise, most of us face day to day problems with our fashionable outfits and undergarments and find it extremely difficult to keep them longer with us. This article puts forward some time-saving, hassle-free and quick tips that can make men’s clothing look younger and durable.

 

 1.Abstain from a lot of washing:

Image Source:www.bespokemen.net

Like seriously? Not washing would keep my clothes stay longer? This can’t be true! If you’d take a closer look, you’d find that the number of times you wash the clothes, that number of times you put them with the harsh detergents. Detergents are made with harsh chemicals that directly affect the threads of the fabric and loosen them, which results in wear and tear. Whether it is your street fashion or your Gucci shirts or Gucci jacket, all the items will result in the same. So avoid washing them too often.

 

 2.Check pockets before washing:

My mother always had this issue with us that we never checked out jeans pockets before putting the jeans in the washing machine. As a result, the mechanic was called to get it out and we got a scolding. Once, I forgot my set of Gucci watches in the pocket (it was brand new) and got it spoiled. In addition, these coins or anything that is left behind in the pockets causes constant rubbing against the fabric and tears the fabric faster. So, you must be careful before putting your clothes in for cleaning.

 

3.Get rid of the bobbles:

Bobbles look very ugly on the clothes. They can make your not so old sweaters or jackets look really old which you obviously don’t want. The saddest part is that once done, they keep coming back and more in number. Hence, you must buy a bobble remover comb for that smooth finish on all your winter wear outfits. Bobble removing combs can also be carried in your Gucci bags or briefcases when you go for a longer duration.

 

4.Fold and Hang theory:

Image Source:www.pulse.ng

You must have heard about the Big Bang Theory but have you heard about the Fold and Hang theory? You must have an idea of which clothes are supposed to be hanged while which are to be folded. Clothes with sharp edges like shirts, pants, shorts or t-shirts and even under clothing pieces are supposed to be folded whereas; articles like suits and any kind of winter wear are required to be hanged because the folded marks need to be prevented from the same.

 

5.Sunlight is important for some:

Image Source:www.respecterre.com

You might show all your clothes sunlight after washing them. Have you ever seen some colors fading? Well, it can either be because of the detergent or because of the sun rays. The darker clothes lose their color because of the sunlight and that’s why it would be a wiser decision to lay them flat in the shade to prevent fading.

 

With these tips, you can keep your favorite outfits longer with you without being rough or faded. You can now be careful while taking care of the outfits in order to keep them looking as good as new for a longer duration.

As life changing as it might be to travel alone, it is important that you remain cognizant of the fact that there is no one around to watch your back. For this reason, you need to pay more attention to everything around you. Many of the travel tips that I came across before I took my own journey around the world were geared towards families, women, and children. There is nothing wrong with this, in fact, I applaud it, but I also wanted to make sure that men have a handy little traveling list that they could refer to in order to keep safe when they travel alone. There are lists for things that every man needs in their lives, but there aren’t many travel tips made for men. So without further ado, here are 10 safety tips geared towards men who travel alone.

Image Source:www.solotravelerworld.com

 1.Purchase Travel Insurance

 

Travel Insurance is beneficial to you if your connecting flight is canceled, or if you lose your valuables at the airport during your flight. It will also come in handy if you happen to injure yourself during your trip, as it will help mitigate the cost of healthcare in a foreign country. No matter the type of unlikely circumstance that life throws your way while you are on a solo trip, having travel insurance in your corner will make it much more bearable.

 

It is very easy for most men to brush things off as unnecessary, but trust me when I say that not getting travel insurance really sucks if it turns out that you need it. Purchasing travel insurance also gives you a chance to learn about any restrictions that you might have while flying. It may also inform you of some of the health and safety risks that the area you are visiting has.

 2.Let People Know Where You Are

It might not sound fun to always keep someone updated on your location, trust me I know. It is very exciting to get lost in another country and go completely off the map, but it isn’t always a safe option. The simple act of letting people know where you are allows you to develop a pattern, and thus your friends and family will already be on alert for your safety if you do not check in with them.

Also, it makes it easier for authorities to track your movements and find you in the event that you go missing (worst case scenario). Needless to say, it is important that when you travel alone, you do not just vanish off the face of the earth (unless that is your intention). Leave some breadcrumbs in your wake so that people can find you if need be, but like I said if you’re traveling to hide then ignore this section.

 3.Don’t Advertise That You’re Traveling Alone

Some men have the natural compulsion to brag, and this compulsion intensifies while they travel. However, it is important that you do not get sucked into the false sense of camaraderie that foreign soil can breed. This is not to say that every beautiful person you meet while you are traveling is your enemy, but it is simply a call for you to be cautious about whom you hang around and what you say to them. Regardless of how you feel about the people that you meet on your journey, do not divulge that you are traveling alone (no matter how beautiful or gorgeous they may be).

Advertising that you are traveling alone puts you at risk and makes you a prime target for criminals and burglars who are looking for easy marks. Have you seen the movie Taken (the original)? If you haven’t, I suggest that you take the time to watch it before you travel. It might sound paranoid, but it will no doubt keep you safer and out of harm’s way.

 4.Know How To Contact The Authorities

I am sure many of you reading this are probably thinking, how is this a manly thing to do? The Alpha Male that lies dormant in most males (in some it’s always on the loose) will be tempted to come out and keep you company when you are traveling alone. It is important to realize that your personal safety is at a much higher risk when you are traveling alone. As such, learning how to properly contact the authorities whenever you are in a different country is an absolute must.

There are those who think they might not need to contact the police or call an ambulance for any reason, and this is probably your Alpha Male talking over you. Requiring assistance when you are in a foreign country is not something that should even remotely bother you. In fact, it is something that you should want to do because it could very well be the determining factor between having a good trip and having a horrible one.

 5.The Fewer The Gadgets, The Better

When you are traveling alone, it is advised that you keep the use of your gadgets to a minimum because it takes away from your situational awareness while simultaneously garnering unwanted attention. Any of these things would be a cause for concern on their own, but together they are truly frightening.

In addition to the points listed above, keeping your gadgets to a minimum allows you to keep better track of them while you are on the go, which reduces the chance of you misplacing something important and expensive. If you want status symbols like watches, make sure that you choose one of the more affordable watches. Same goes for any other product. The cheaper it is the less likely it is to be stolen, and the less you are going to worry about it.

 6.Hide Your Valuables

For some men, it is in our very nature to flaunt whatever we have, but when you are in unfamiliar territory, it is best to keep that to yourself. This is important in everyday life but even more so when you are traveling abroad and you are on foreign soil. As welcoming and hospitable as some countries may be, it is important to always be aware of the fact that you are at a unique disadvantage.

Even before you touch down, you should take the proper steps to secure your bags. Everything from your flight to your stay has the potential to put your valuables at risk. If you are not a local, there will be many things that you are not accustomed to, and this places you in a precarious spot. This is why you should leave the flaunting until you are back on home turf, that way you don’t incentivize anyone to take advantage of you.

 7.Make Use Of A Pocket Dictionary

Traveling is about immersing yourself in a different culture and engaging with the people around you, but sometimes this is hard to do with a language gap. A good way to get around this is to make use of a pocket dictionary (or an app with the same function). This will produce more fruitful social interaction. It will also make the locals more accessible. Trust me, you will not be meeting anyone interesting at a bar or club if you stand around sputtering and being misunderstood all the time.

 8.Don’t Binge Drink

This is the perfect time to bring up this handy safety tip since I just addressed being at a bar or a club. Now, a lot of men enjoy drinking while they are traveling, and I have nothing at all against this. However, it is important that you do not drink to the point where you are clearly drunk because that can be a problem.

Alcohol laws vary from country to country, and in some places, it is a crime to be intoxicated in public. However, this is a minor concern because being put in a cell to sober up is one of the best-case scenarios. The consumption of alcohol (in large enough quantities) leads to impaired mental faculties and impaired motor skills. This limits your response time and makes you prime for victimization.

Being drunk also makes it harder for you to keep your guard up if the need arises. In effect, this makes you a much easier target for thieves and criminals, and many of them will not hesitate to take advantage of you in your inebriated state. It is imperative that you have your wits about you when you are traveling in another country and this is hard to do when you are visibly impaired.

 9.Try To Be Open

There are some men that are naturally aggressive and dominant, and this is a trait that should take a backseat when you are abroad. The last thing you want to do is make people dislike you when you are far from your support network, and the fastest way to make people dislike you is to be abrasive and rude. It is key to your safety that you remain open to new ways of doing things and try to keep a positive outlook at all times.

This allows you to form bonds with the people that you meet, and it will make you much less of a target for burglars and criminals. Blend with the culture of the area, and try not to offend those around you through your ignorance of local customs. Be sure that you are not a pushover, either. Stand your ground, but do so politely.

 10.Know Your Limits

None of the points that have been made above will keep you safe while traveling unless you are mindful of your own limits as an individual. At this point, it is common knowledge that travel of any sort can be fun if you let it be. But you have to be mindful of your surroundings, and make sure that you do not get carried away and blame it on the heat of the moment.

If you have never jumped off a cliff while you are at home, surrounded by people you know, it is not advisable to try and do it when you are off in another country. Try new things when you can, but be sure that there is someone around who may be able to assist you in the event that the worst-case scenario occurs.

Conclusion

Travelling can be fun, and it allows you discover a good deal about new places while simultaneously learning so much about yourself. The benefits of traveling often are at times mitigated by the dangers people face when they travel. Hopefully, this list of tips will help you make the most out of your next trip while simultaneously keeping you safe while exploring.

Go on a vacation

It is not uncommon for men to propose to their girlfriends while on vacation. If you’re considering proposing during a trip, we recommend that you do a bit of research before you leave.

If your partner is close to her family, odds are she wants to share this moment with them. Enlist the help of her family and try to get them involved in the proposal.

Tell her that one of her family members is throwing a party, so you’ll be going together. Since her family is on your side, it will be easier to make her believe that nothing is out of the ordinary. You can ask them to arrive at the venue earlier and hold a sign that says “will you marry me?” This will be the first thing she sees once you reach the venue.

You can also do the proposal in private, so she gets to enjoy the moment. Ask everyone to hide until the proposal is done. Once she says yes, you can give them the go signal to come out to surprise her and then you can all celebrate together.

Ask her favorite author to help with the proposal

If your girlfriend is a book lover, nothing will make her happier than receiving a book as a gift. Buy her a book from one of her favorite authors. To make the proposal extra special, have it signed by the author and ask him/her to write “Will you marry (your name)?”

Take her out on a date and tell her you have a surprise for her. Once you’re seated, give her the book. Let her read the message to help build up all the emotions. Make sure that you’re down on one knee and holding the ring when she peaks up from the book. Any proposal that involves books and their favorite author is every book lover’s dream. Plus, they’ll have a keepsake to hold on to for the rest of their lives.

Propose on the beach

There is something romantic and magical about a beach proposal. The waves give a serene sound. The views are amazing. The pristine stretch of soft white sand provides an excellent backdrop for giving her your heartfelt proposal.

After a leisurely meal, take your sweetheart for a stroll in the beach. As you walk hand-in-hand, take her to a spot, where you have written the message a few hours ago.  As you walk along, ask her to read what is written on the sand. Pretend you’ve never seen it before. Pull the ring box out of your pocket as she reads it so you have it ready for her when she turns around.

Scavenger hunt

Scavenger hunts are fun and exciting. It provides an excellent marriage proposal idea for ladies who like an adventure.

To start with, think of 3 to 4 places that are meaningful to your relationship. These are the places where the clues will be. For this to work, you may seek help from her family and her friends. You can ask 2 of her friends to help her during the game; while other family members and friends will be waiting for her on the next stations and hand her the clues. You should keep yourself out of the hunt to ensure that you can flawlessly execute your plan.

As she reaches the final location, you’ll be there waiting for her. Now, it’s your turn to hand her the final clue. While she’s reading it, you pull the ring out of your pocket and ask her to spend the rest of her life with you.

Leaky roofs are among the common reasons why homeowners call contractors. Property owners usually do not have the knowledge or expertise to look for the problems that affect their roofs. While professionals have experience dealing with various roof issues, the sources of leaks are not always easy to spot.

The areas where the water gets into the building are not necessarily linked directly to the source of the problem. This is why contractors need to investigate in order for them to be able to identify the leak’s source correctly and the path along which the water travels. Maintenance programs can help to minimize the occurrence of leaks.

Roofing- Preventing Leaks

Roofing contractors recommend that the roofing system is inspected regularly and maintained by professionals to prevent future problems. Similar to how a car will not run efficient if you never change the oil, you cannot install your roof and forget about it.

 

Roof Inspections

Before inspections are performed, contractors usually observe while on the ground and find out whether there have been extreme weather conditions recently, presence of animals, falling debris, accidents or cable work that may have damaged the roof.

Once you have access to the roof, there are simple and effective ways to locate leaks that can occur in the future. Maintenance can help you notice potential issues that can cause roof damage. Penetrations are one of the main sources of leaks and stop water from flossing naturally off a roof.

Different Sources of Leaks 

  • Chimneys are top leak sources that may have crickets, are improperly counter flashed or require sealing.
  • Water may be trapped behind skylights; flashing may require repair and the skylight may leak.
  • Plumbing vents that have cracked rubber over time, need to be painted or sealed and have damaged pipes are other key sources of leaks.
  • Contractors inform their customers about preventative maintenance and the type of repairs that can help prevent costly issues in the future.

 Choosing Home Decor for your Lifestyle

Decorating a home is all about creating a space the suits your personality and lifestyle. Along with making sure that the appearance of your home fulfills your needs, you also need to consider how the different rooms of your home function according to your lifestyle and what you want to accomplish.

An outgoing personality is usually reflected by vibrant colors while someone who is introverted is likely to prefer a sheltered space with subtle hues. There are no fixed rules pertaining to decor as people are at liberty to experiment with various themes and concepts.

Significance of Colors

Rooms such as children’s bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen rooms are generally brighter in color. Establishing a formal tone in rooms such as the dining room, living room and home office tends to involve using subdued colors with minimal patterns to achieve tranquility.

 

Inspiration

If you are looking for a unique way to showcase your personality or specific colors to enhance the mood of the room, look through publications that give insight into various aspects of home decor. Websites, decorating magazines, fabric brochures and books are worthwhile resources for inspiring your next project.

As a guy, you’re wired for greatness! You’re gifted to scale the heights of achievement. How you define and train yourself determines whether you’ll be successful.Many men have a vague sense of who they are. You may be surprised to realize what you actually think of yourself. What’s more, your self-definition may not be accurate. Poor self-worth prevents you from expressing your highest potential. It also sidelines the discipline required.3811ed75b743c8ebcc7c49d1d4813bf5

This blog will help to clarify your self-image. You’ll also see how self-esteem equips you to fulfill ambitions.

Self Respect Definition

First, let’s clearly define self respect. What are the indicators of this attribute?

  • You appreciate your personality.
  • You’re at peace with its character flaws.
  • You trust your judgment.
  • You know you’re worthy of being treated well.
  • You don’t compromise your values and principles.
  • You consider yourself capable of handling challenges.

Do you lack self-worth?

Now let’s examine the other end of the spectrum. When you’re short in self-assurance, here are the signs:

  • You habitually criticize yourself.
  • You may be driven by perfectionism.
  • Chronic indecision is a constant companion since you fear making mistakes.
  • You often feel guilty for your behavior.
  • You’re hyper-sensitive to what people think of you.
  • Your overall view of life is pessimistic.

How do you regard yourself?

One way to discern your self-image is observing your inner dialogue. If you have self-respect, your mental conversation contains affirmations:

“I’m skilled at handling problems.”
“I’m responsive to the needs of others.”
“I have sound judgment.”
“I’m fun to be around.”

Low self-esteem sounds like this:

“I make lousy decisions.”
“I’m always missing opportunities.”
“My life is a mess.”
“I’m doomed.”

What are the root causes of self-sabotage?

Before tracing the source of a poor self-image, let’s discuss why it’s important to do this. If you don’t know why a harmful record keeps playing in your head, you won’t be able to stop it. Your negative self-conceptions will magnetically attract unpleasant conditions. Renowned life coach John Kreiter suggests this exercise to determine why you may not like yourself:

1. Schedule a 15-minute block of quiet time. Close your eyes and think of an aspect of your life that’s causing unhappiness. Perhaps it’s a job situation or relationship.

2. Watch the thoughts that float across your mental screen.

3. Ask yourself why you think this way.

4. Determine whether your thought is true or a misconception.

5. If the belief is true, think about what you can do to change it. If it’s false, replace the myth with a constructive thought.

6. By substituting positive self-dialogue, your mind will open to new possibilities. Then you’ll be psyched to modify behavior.

7. When the lie resurfaces, swap it for your upbeat thought.

8. When you see good results from adopting new mental habits, it creates a positive feedback loop. Now you’ll be inspired to repeat those actions. In effect, you’re sowing the seeds of discipline.

How do you cultivate self-worth?

First, post this quote in a place where you’ll see it often:

Respect yourself enough to walk away from what’s unhealthy for you.

Then, follow the suggestions of Dani DiPirro, creator of PositivelyPresent.com.

1. Don’t compromise your aspirations.

Another way of saying this is, “Don’t settle for less than your best effort.”

2. Overlook your bloopers.

Remember, all men make mistakes. Try to view them as learning experiences rather than cause for regret. Self-reproach wastes the energy you need to move forward.

3. Forgive those who’ve hurt you.

Granted, it isn’t easy to release the pain of injustice. Remembering the benefits of amnesty helps:

  • You hone the ability to manage unpleasant emotions.
  • Troubled relationships become agreeable.
  • Others’ actions are easier to understand.
  • You forge tolerance.
  • Shedding the weight of negativity is uplifting.

4. Keep the company of supportive people.

Spending time with those who value you reinforces a positive self-image. It underscores the fact that you’re worth knowing. When people compliment you, savor their praise. When you’re commended for doing something well, soak up the verbal sunshine. Periodically, take stock of your abilities. Confidence increases self-esteem.

5. Be kind to your body.

Let’s face it, guys. We tend to be either excessive or negligent when it comes to self-care. Try to aim for moderation with food, exercise, work, and recreation. Find healthy ways to release tension.

6. Don’t compare yourself to other men.

When you measure your lifestyle against that of other guys, you lose sight of what makes you great. Live by your own values. Then, celebrate your personal accomplishments!

How do you acquire discipline?

5-steps-to-developing-a-new-discipline-for-your-success

Image Source:www.nicholasferguson.org

Now that we’ve defined self-respect, how does it relate to achieving goals? Self-worth fosters the self-control required for discipline. We can express this concept as an equation:

Self Respect Definition x Self Control = Discipline

Here’s a light bulb moment! By trading encouraging dialogue for self-degradation, you’re developing self-control. Do you see the link?

If the idea of discipline elicits dread, think of it this way instead. Combating resistance is in your best interest. Think of the prize at the end of your climb! When tempted to succumb to weakness, visualize the reward. You have the inborn willpower to overthrow all obstacles.

You’re Worthy

By now, you have a precise definition of self respect. Aware of your special abilities, you’ll naturally want to preserve them. Discipline is taking the steps that ensure success. Think well of yourself to realize your dreams!
