10 Reasons Why Well-Groomed Men Are More Successful At Work

10 Reasons Why Well-Groomed Men Are More Successful At Work

Someone once said, “It’s what’s on the inside that counts,” and rightfully so. However, the old adage “You only get one chance to make a first impression” is also equally true.

So, how you appear to others is as important as how you really are. Appearance is the first opportunity for you to appeal to others and, in some cases, the only opportunity. Therefore, you should be thoughtful about presenting yourself.

Here are some reasons why well-dressed men are more likely to succeed at work.

1. They feel extra confident about themselves.

Well-groomed men feel extra confident about themselves and fully realize their potential and abilities. This is primarily because they know that they are looking their best in terms of their appearance.

Confidence is the key to success in all walks of life, and career is certainly part of that. Trusting yourself fully to get a job done means almost half of that job is already done. This applies to men at work equally.

Confident men have that sense of self-control and killer instinct that sets them apart from others, which helps them perform well in each and every aspect of their work.

2. They radiate a sense of self-esteem.

Knowing you can get things done and being in control isn’t enough in this judgmental world. You’re being judged at every step you take, whether you accept it or not.

You have to be able to reflect clearly that you completely believe in your abilities. And, well-groomed men just do that. They glow with a sense of self-esteem about themselves and that helps a lot in their careers.

No one likes to trust someone who has doubt in themself. As well-dressed men visibly present their self-assurance, they have a great advantage over those who don’t care about dressing themselves particularly well.

3. They can make lasting impressions quickly.

Careers are really unforgiving. There are so many occasions where you get only a single chance. And at times, those are half-chances only. You don’t get a second chance to make up in case you make mistakes.

Making impressions is very important in business. Appearance is regularly used as the first filter. This is even more the case when there’s no clear idea about an employee and his organization’s profile.

As well-dressed men are more confident and more likely to be held in high regards than those who aren’t very well-dressed, they can make lasting impressions very quickly. This puts such men in better positions to succeed at work.

4. They augment their physical attractiveness.

All of us are more interested in things that are attractive than those that are unattractive. This applies to human relationships as well. People like to be associated with better-looking men and women, and that’s a fact.

Having a proper dress sense helps a lot in being more attractive and appealing. A man looks much better when he’s properly dressed compared to when he isn’t dressed particularly well.

With their better physical appearance, well-groomed men are more likely to make better impressions and be held in high regards by others. This goes a long way in helping them have a rewarding career.

5. They are more likely to draw positive attention.

With their high level of confidence and self-esteem, as well as physical attractiveness, well-groomed men are much more likely to draw positive attention from others than those who aren’t well-groomed.

The ability to gather attention quickly from others is a highly important asset in professional sectors. This helps one start ahead of others and create valuable impacts in their vocation.

Well-groomed men are more likely to create lasting impressions and communicate their ideas better, by drawing and keeping positive attention from others. This puts them in a position of significant competitive advantage over others at work.

6. They are trusted to best represent themselves as well as the organization.

Success comes in all kinds of shapes and styles. There are certainly work cultures that don’t put too much emphasis on how you dress, and there are people who have succeeded without caring much about their attire.

However, many executives and organizations in the industry rate dress sense in high regard. Elegantly dressed men are more likely to be trusted to represent the organization in front of clients, associates, and competitors by seniors.

Because of the trust put upon them by seniors, well-dressed men have better opportunities to lead the organization and showcase their potentials, facilitating them to move up the organizational ladder more swiftly.

7. They exhibit better personal hygiene and care.

Grooming yourself well doesn’t just mean putting on the best-looking suit or the most expensive attire. It also means covering yourself in dress that is spotless and that makes you comfortable as well.

Men who dress well display a top level of personal hygiene. They demonstrate that they are able to take good care of themselves. This is a very important aspect in any work environment.

Colleagues and superiors probably won’t enjoy working with someone who is wearing dirty shoes and has bad body odor. So, well-groomed men are adored by co-workers and bosses alike—this is a valuable gain at work.

8. They look and appear more mature.

Mature-looking men are much more likely to succeed at work. This is because they have an aura of wisdom about them. They seem to have years of experience under their belts and are better trusted to work in responsible positions within the organization.

Well-presented men are at an advantage in this front as well. Dressing well and keeping yourself up to date with the latest trends is doubly advantageous—you don’t look either extremely young or extremely old, but have a healthy balance of maturity.

With this perfect look, that is the right mix of youthful vigor and seasoned wisdom, well-dressed men are valued highly in an association.

9. They fit better into the organization.

Most organizations put great emphasis on proper dress code and value well-groomed employees. With all your fellow workers dressed elegantly, it makes sense to put on the best outfit possible.

So appropriate dress sense is helpful for employees to fit in with their organization as well. You wouldn’t want to appear in the office in half-pants and sandals when everyone else is formally dressed.

Fitting right into an organization is very useful to success. Of course, dressing well isn’t enough and well-groomed men also have to blend with the culture, environment, and philosophy of the workspace, but learning to dress up for work helps their case a lot.

10. They stand out in the crowd.

By virtue of their self-confidence and ability to draw out positive attention from others, well-dressed men stand out in the crowd. This is correct for all occasions and holds true for the office space as well.

With fierce competition from all around, from both within the organization as well as outside, there are very few opportunities to make an impact. And, well-presented men make the best use of every opportunity they get.

Well-groomed men make a solid personal statement and announce themselves loudly at the podium. With their matured look and ability to make lasting impressions quickly, they stand an inch apart from others and are at a better position to succeed at work.

5 Fixes For Common Sleep Issues All Couples Deal With

5 Fixes For Common Sleep Issues All Couples Deal With

Sleeping next to your partner can be a satisfying experience and is typically seen as the mark of a stable, healthy home life. However, many more people struggle to share a bed with their partner than typically let on. Sleeping beside someone can decrease your sleep quality which negatively affects your life. Maybe you are light sleepers and you wake each other up throughout the night. Maybe one has a loud snoring habit that’s keeping the other awake. Maybe one is always crawling into bed in the early hours of the morning while the other likes to go to bed at 10 p.m.

You don’t have to feel ashamed of finding it difficult to sleep with your partner and you also don’t have to give up entirely on it. Common problems can be addressed with simple solutions such as an additional pillow. Here are five fixes for common sleep issues that couples deal with.

1. Use a bigger mattress to sleep through movement

It can be difficult to sleep through your partner’s tossing and turning all night, particularly if they have to get in and out of bed. Waking up multiple times in one night can leave you frustrated and exhausted. The solution may be a switch to a bigger mattress or a mattress that minimizes movement.

Look for a mattress that allows enough space so that your partner can move around without impacting you or consider a mattress made for two sleepers like the Sleep Number bed.[1] This bed allows each person to choose their own firmness level. It also minimizes any disturbances their partner might feel. A foam mattress like the kind featured in advertisements where someone jumps on a bed with an unspilled glass of wine will help minimize the impact of your partner’s movements.[2]

2. Communicate about scheduling conflicts

If one of you is a night owl and the other an early riser, bedtime can become a source of conflict. It’s hard for a light sleeper to be jostled by their partner coming to bed four hours after them. Talk to your partner about negotiating some compromises. If you’re finding it difficult to agree on a bedtime, negotiate with your partner. Don’t come to bed before or after a certain time, giving the early bird a chance to fully fall asleep before the other comes in. Consider giving the night owl an eye mask to allow them to stay in bed while their partner gets up to start the day.

3. Don’t bring your technology to bed

If one partner likes bringing devices to bed and the other partner doesn’t, there’s very little compromise to be found. Science is pretty unanimous on the fact that screens can cause harm to a healthy sleeper. Both partners should agree on a time to keep technology out of the bedroom or turn screens off. This will prevent both partners from having their sleep interrupted and can help you power down after a long day.

4. White noise and changing positions can silence snoring

A snoring partner can be one of the most difficult things to sleep through. Snoring tends to be position-specific so many doctors recommend switching positions to stop the snoring. Rather than sleeping on your back doctors recommend turning onto your side. Changing positions can cut down on noise and breathing difficulties for any snorer. Using a white noise fan, or sound machine can also help soften the impact of loud snoring and keep both partners undisturbed.

5. Use two blankets if one’s a blanket hog

If you’ve got a blanket hog in your bed don’t fight it, get another blanket. This solution fixes any issues between two partners and their comforter. There’s no rule that you have to sleep under the same blanket. Separate covers can also cut down on tossing and turning making it a multi-useful adaptation.

Rather than giving up entirely on sharing a bed with your partner, try one of these techniques to improve your sleeping habits. Sleeping in separate beds can be a normal part of a healthy home life, but compromise can go a long way toward creating harmony in a shared bed.
