It’s time to kiss the 10’s goodbye and ring in the start of a new decade! Maybe you think resolutions are a waste of time, but we never like to pass up a chance to evaluate ourselves and resolve to do better. So put the champagne on ice and pucker up those lips, because it is time to ring in the New Year and make a toast to a better you.
Here are our top five resolutions for 2020!
Stop Comparing Your Body to Other Bodies.
No matter what your body shape or size is, we all can get caught up in the desire to look better. This relentless quest, however, can leave even the most aesthetically inclined feeling inadequate and empty. And no matter how hard you try, there will always be someone prettier, fitter, and younger than you.
This year, teach yourself to love and embrace the way you look, no matter how you may look at that moment. Whether you think you need to gain 10 pounds or lose 50, develop the voice inside of you that tells you how wonderful you are. No matter how hard you try, you will never be your ideal image of beauty until you realize that there is, in fact, no ideal image of beauty. So look in the mirror, fall in love with your imperfections and move on to more important things.
Have Better Sex!
We know what you are thinking. Exactly how do you resolve to have better sex? Well, the answer is easy to us. Take the steps you need to feel confident in the bedroom and explore what feels good to you. No matter how you have sex, your sex is healthy and should be celebrated! So take your fiber, exfoliate that hole, and let loose! (Literally)
Sounds easy enough, right? But as your schedule starts to fill up and you get back into your normal routine, some of your friends’ and acquaintances’ important events can easily fall off of your priority list.
This year, whether you are too tired, too busy, or just not that into it, make an effort to show up. It means more than you think, and chances are you will probably have fun when you get there anyway.
Don’t just be nice. Show kindness.
Anyone can be nice without any substance or meaning behind it. Maybe they want a bigger tip, a promotion, an invite to your party, your business. Perhaps they just want to avoid any drama instead of saying how they really feel.
In 2020, move beyond the “nice” and try to show a little kindness everyday. Unlike being nice, being kind requires actual effort because it requires you to genuinely give a damn about the other person and his or her wellbeing. And often, extending kindness means doing something for others just because you can, without any expectation of reciprocation.
Don’t punish yourself more than once.
So you made some mistakes in the last decade. The good news is, so did everybody else! But did you know that humans are the only living creatures on the planet that continue to feel shame and guilt from a mistake long after they made it. When you make a mistake in 2020, and you will, take a moment to learn from it. Acknowledge what you did wrong, and then forgive yourself immediately. Carrying around the shame from all of your mishaps doesn’t help you at all. Shed your regrets and hold your chin up.
This past decade has been a great one, but we can’t wait to see what the 20’s have in store. From all of us at Pure for Men, we hope you have a happy, healthy, and most of all sexy New Year!
