Work Life Balance – What Works For You?

I get the irony… Here I am sitting in a plush hotel in the Highlands of Scotland, supping a cold fresh pint of locally brewed beer, writing this post. Technically this should count as work.

If I was sitting in a crowded office this would have been a stressful experience – and I would have most definitely defined it as ‘work’. I had always envied those people who seemed to be able to strike a work/life balance. The one that allows Read More...

The Importance of Foot Care – Looking After Your Feet

As a man you probably spend a lot of time looking after your teeth, hair and abs. But when was the last time you gave you feet some attention? Foot care is just as important.

At the end of the day we unwrap them, only to cover them up again in bed with a roasting hot duvet. Poor shoe choices can lead to sweaty feet and fungal Read More...

Winter is Coming. Beat The Winter Blues

The blistering heat of summer 2018 seems a distant memory now as we storm through September towards the inevitable damp and cold of the coming winter months. It’s time to dig out the thick socks, wooly gloves and zip-tight waterproof jackets… but it’s also our favourite time of the year (who doesn’t love long nights in front of a log fire?) Winter weather seems to attract a ‘grayer’ wardrobe. Like a reflection of the dark skies above, we put on heavy dark clothes – the world seems to feel a bit heavier too – but it doesn’t have to be Read More...

Skincare For Men | Next Generation Thinking

Let’s face it guys – we might be thicker skinned than the girls, but we also like looking good. I had never really thought too hard about looking after my skin. I suppose I was like most guys of my generation…. the 80’s… the era of the single earring, stone washed jeans, and big hair. Going out meant rocking a casual tee-shirt under a designer jacket with the sleeves pushed back… loved that cool yet casual look. Miss it… kinda… Anyway the most thought I gave to grooming was making sure my hair was clean and I had a good Read More...

Wet Shave or Electric Razor? The Shaving Dilemma

I can still remember my first shave. What a mess I made of my face… The look on my Dad’s face when I came downstairs to show him my shaving attempt was a mixture of confusion and amusement. Then he then burst out laughing. ‘Why didn’t you ask me to show you?’ he asked. To be honest, I probably should have, but that first shave is a very personal moment for a boy. It’s the time when you announce to the world that you are on your way to becoming a man… and fully able to grow a beard or Read More...
