Today we take a look at a few things that every man can do to adjust with the season:

Preparing the beach body

If you wan’t to be gracing the shoreline with a trimmed and toned beach body this summer, than now is the time to be burning off that winter coat and getting the six pack primed. Good fitness doesn’t happen overnight, but with a healthy diet and regular exercise it doesn’t take too long. With the days getting longer you have more time to make any necessary changes. If you don’t already, consider joining a gym or going for a regular walk or run. At least 20 minutes exercise a few days a week is recommended and don’t underestimate the importance of a good stretch. Try hitting the sand for some vitimin-k intake and a slight tan to take the glow off.

Try a cold shower

Say what? Yes, a cold shower. It can be uncomfortable but also quite invigorating. The cold water shocks our body into warming itself which improves circulation and increases metabolism. This in turn helps your lymphatic system by aiding in the removal of waste from your cells which helps ward off infections. The cold water sends electrical impulses to your brain. This jolt to the system releases endorphins which leads to feelings of alertness, clarity and well-being, a great way to keep your head in a good place.

Get some new threads

There is something extremely satisfying about new clothes and or a fresh pair of kicks. With the new season threads hitting the shelves, now is a good time to get the jump on the new fashion (before there is nothing left in your size). Put your Covid-19 stimulus check to some personal use and get some fresh clobber for the wardrobe. Don’t forget to swing past the barbershop while your browsing around, no component of this list is more important than a fresh haircut.

Get a buzz cut

As the weather warms up, a little extra breeze on your head is the functional advantage that you will get if you go for this look. It is definitely not for everyone, but for those who are brave, the buzz cut provides a no-fuss, zero maintenance style that is perfect for the season.

Textured and tapered

If you're not yet ready for a full-on buzz cut, try letting your hair loose and embrace its natural textures. Stay neat and tight on your back and sides while embracing some length on top. If you have thinner hair, try some texturising powder to build-up the volume of your desired look. Finally, use a matte pomade or clay to fine-tune the small details of your new look.

Final thoughts

The best way to face the changing of the seasons is by giving yourself a new routine and a fresh new look. This can do wonders for your self-confidence and allow you to grow into a new chapter in your life while looking and feeling your best.
