6 ways for men to practise self-care

What comes to mind when you think of self-care? It might be face masks, day spas, or snacking on blocks of chocolate whilst watching a comfort movie —right? Well, we’re here to tell you that self-care is a lot more than just beauty rituals and rom coms (unless that sounds like the perfect day for you then by all means, go for it!). Men can, and should, practise self-care regularly to maintain their mental and emotional health, and make sure their mind is just as fit as their muscles are. So, if you’re wanting to explore the world of self-care and make it a regular healthy habit but have no idea where to start, then you’ve come to the right place! We’ve gathered some tips on how men can start practising self-care, so you can feel your best all day, every day.

Experiment with exercise

We all know that moving your body is one of the best ways to improve your physical health, but what you may not know is that exercise will also significantly improve your mental health. Whether you prefer to walk, run, swim, climb or surf, engaging in some physical activity will help release a special hormone in your body called endorphins, that help to relieve pain, reduce stress, and improve your mood. We recommend trying a new form of physical activity if you already have a go-to exercise, just to keep things fresh and to create a new healthy habit. If you love a morning walk, why not take that walk out into nature and try hiking? Manning Shoes have hiking boots that offer comfort, protection and traction, so why not grab a pair and take your regular daily walks to the next level?


Try a new hobby

Another way to add some self-care into your everyday routine is by giving a new hobby a go. Research shows that people with hobbies are less likely to suffer from stress and low mood, as they help you focus your mind on a new activity. So, why not try out a few new hobbies and see what sticks? If you’ve always wanted to try golf, Sanity stocks electric golf buggies to carry your heavy clubs, so you don’t have to lug them up and down all 18 holes. You can play on your own or in a group, so why not grab a buggy and see how close you can get to the elusive hole-in-one?


Relax at home

If you have quite a busy lifestyle full of meetings, events, social gatherings and travel, then one of the best ways you can practise self-care, is by simply getting in to the habit of carving out time in your schedule to get cosy and stay at home. Having a quiet day in your own space is key for a healthy mind, as it not only allows you to have a long sleep in (who wouldn’t love that?), but it also allows you to rest and recharge, so you have enough energy to get back out there and be your full self. If spending a day at home and having some much needed me-time sounds like bliss to you, we recommend getting your hands on a great new book to read while you drink your mid-morning coffee. Sanity has a great selection of fiction, non-fiction, and interactive journal books, so why not create a new healthy habit for yourself by taking some time out for yourself and snuggling up with a good book more often?


Switch up your style

Sometimes, all you need to improve your mood and practise self-care is a wardrobe update. You don’t need to go on a full shopping spree to try a new style, simply wearing a watch is a great way to elevate your daily look without going through too much effort. Not only will it add an air of sophistication to your ensemble, but it’ll also help you reduce your phone screentime. How you may ask? Well, instead of checking your phone when you need to know the time, only to then accidentally find yourself scrolling for hours, you’ll be able to simply check your watch and get on with your day. Creating a new healthy habit, whilst also amping up your style - how good is that? Regency Jewellers have a massive selection of watches in varying styles, so whether you prefer a minimalist watch with a leather strap, or a sporty style that’s extremely durable, you’ll be able to find a watch that works for you.


Enhance your haircare

Another great way to start trying self-care is to make a ritual out of your haircare routine. It may sound silly, but taming your mane can not just improve your overall mood, but it can also boost your confidence and self-esteem. Whether you have long luscious locks, or a shorter style, regularly nourishing your strands can not only make you feel more put together and ready to take on the day, but it can also become a special moment of me-time that you can dedicate to yourself every single morning. Kingsmen Hair have so many different haircare products for you to choose from, including some spectacular beard oils. So, take a look at their collection to see what products will make you feel like a million bucks every day of the week.


Spend time with family

Finally, if you’re looking for a way to practise self-care that involves the people you love, then why not prioritise some family time? With so much going on in our lives, carving out time to spend with the kids can be tough. So, to really put a smile on not just your face, but your kids’ faces as well, why not plan a family game night so everyone’s mood is boosted? Sanity has a great range of family-friendly entertainment, to make sure everyone is having the best time. We recommend playing a fun board game with the kids, like Jumanji or Monopoly, to get a cheeky family competition going.




There you have it! Practising a bit of self-care doesn’t have to be difficult. All you really need to do to take better care of your mental and emotional wellbeing, is find something that allows you to spend time on something that makes you happy and helps you to create a new healthy habit. It doesn’t matter if it involves reading a good book in a quiet house, getting into nature, playing a game with the kids, or developing a new haircare routine, as long as it puts a smile on your face and boosts your mood, then that’s all that matters.
