Nude-Faced Women Are Definitely Amazing Lovers.

Nude-Faced Women Are Definitely Amazing Lovers.

It’s been a few months since former supermodel Tyra Banks posed for People Magazine “nude-faced.” She was praised for being brave enough to smile on the cover of a magazine without makeup on her face. She is very brave. This post is a tribute to her and to women like my wife who know how to light up a room with or without makeup. I respect these women because…

1. They’re confident.

Confidence is sexy, and it persuades people. Rock a day with no makeup like it’s the new thing, and don’t be surprised if others follow along.

2. They create more “wow” moments.

We all love a good transformation scene, when a lovable girl gets dressed up and captivates an entire room. We saw it in The Princess Diaries, A Walk to Remember, A Cinderella Story, and other classic movies. These breathtaking moments are made possible by girls who don’t go to the grocery store dressed like they’re going to prom.

3. They’re more kissable.

If you’re looking for five words to kill romance, try, “Don’t mess up my makeup.” On a similar note, my wife is a big fan of lipstick, which looks great on her but not so much on me. Sometimes, this spoils opportunities for a romantic kiss.

4. They’re not afraid to sweat.

I love it when girls join in a game of volleyball or soccer — the whole experience is way more fun. Similar to the kissing argument, it makes me sad to see a girl opt-out because she’s afraid to sweat off her makeup. Go for it!

5. They don’t monopolize the bathroom.

When we first got married, my wife and I lived in a tiny apartment with one, single-sink bathroom. Getting ready was a lot simpler on days when she didn’t wear makeup.

6. They put less pressure on my appearance.

Hey, don’t judge me! It’s nice to have a day when I can dress casually and relax without feeling like a total slob.

7. They’re not afraid to be authentic.

Attraction is certainly important in a relationship, and we all have occasions when we want to put our best foot forward. But equally crucial to a healthy relationship is intimacy, feeling like you truly know a person. I find it refreshing to share life with a woman who’s comfortable in her own skin.

8. They save money.

I didn’t put this one first because I didn’t want to sound naggy, but I’m perpetually shocked by how expensive makeup is. If you can make mascara last longer by giving it the day off now and then, you won’t hear me complaining.

9. They’re free to be more spontaneous.

When a fun opportunity presents itself like last-minute concert tickets, sometimes you have to hop in the car and go for it. Memories like these never happen if you refuse to leave the house without an hour to get ready.

10. They know the value of inner beauty.

Not all beauty is obvious. Many precious forms are hidden in qualities such as kindness, bravery, and perseverance. It’s hard not to be attracted to a girl who knows there’s more to beauty than a moment in a mirror.

11. They help others feel accepted.

Life can feel like one big competition as people constantly vie for power and popularity. It’s so relaxing and inspiring to be around someone who’s brave enough to drop the act and just be herself.

12. They have more inner peace.

Some people run themselves ragged trying to impress others through their appearance, and according to Australian Instagram star Essena O’Neil, it can be exhausting. “Without realizing, I’ve spent majority of my teenage life being addicted to social media, social approval, social status and my physical appearance…I was surrounded by all this wealth and all this fame and all this power and yet they were all miserable, and I had never been more miserable.” Props to the girls who reject the game and save some energy for more meaningful pursuits.

13. They demonstrate maturity.

Life’s not perfect. Some days you’ll feel like you’re on top of the world, and others you’ll just want to crawl back into bed. When life throws a curve ball, it’s the people with the right priorities who have the chance to shine. I deeply respect women who can conquer a day without makeup and who practice, as Michele Cushatt beautifully puts it, “making peace with an imperfect life.”

10 Reasons Why New Year’s Resolutions Fail

10 Reasons Why New Year’s Resolutions Fail

A new year beautifully symbolizes a new chapter opening in the book that is your life. But while so many people like you aspire to achieve ambitious goals, only 12% of you will ever experience the taste of victory. Sound bad? It is. 156 million people (that’s 156,000,000) will probably give up on their resolution before you can say “confetti.” Keep on reading to learn why New Year’s resolutions fail (and how to succeed).

Note: Since losing weight is the most common New Year’s resolution, I chose to focus on weight loss (but these principles can be applied to just about any goal you think of — make it work for you!).

1. You’re treating a marathon like a sprint.

Slow and steady habit change might not be sexy, but it’s a lot more effective than the “I want it ALL and I want it NOW!” mentality. Small changes stick better because they aren’t intimidating (if you do it right, you’ll barely even notice them!).

If you have a lot of bad habits today, the last thing you need to do is remodel your entire life overnight. Want to lose weight? Stop it with the crash diets and excessive exercise plans. Instead of following a super restrictive plan that bans anything fun, add one positive habit per week. For example, you could start with something easy like drinking more water during your first week. The following week, you could move on to eating 3 fruits and veggies every day. And the next week, you could aim to eat a fistful of protein at every meal.

2. You put the cart before the horse.

“Supplementing” a crappy diet is stupid, so don’t even think about it. Focus on the actions that produce the overwhelming amount of results. If it’s not important, don’t worry about it.

3. You don’t believe in yourself.

A failure to act can cripple you before you leave the starting line. If you’ve tried (and failed) to set a New Year’s resolution (or several) in the past, I know it might be hard to believe in yourself. Doubt is a nagging voice in your head that will resist personal growth with every ounce of its being. The only way to defeat doubt is to believe in yourself. Who cares if you’ve failed a time or two? This year, you can try again (but better this time).

4. Too much thinking, not enough doing.

The best self-help book in the world can’t save you if you fail to take action. Yes, seek inspiration and knowledge, but only as much as you can realistically apply to your life. If you can put just one thing you learn from every book or article you read into practice, you’ll be on the fast track to success.

5. You’re in too much of a hurry.

If it was quick-and-easy, everybody would do it, so it’s in your best interest to exercise your patience muscles.

6. You don’t enjoy the process.

Is it any wonder people struggle with their weight when they see eating as a chore and exercise as a dreadful bore? The best fitness plan is one that causes the least interruption to your daily life. The goal isn’t to add stress to your life, but rather to remove it.

The best of us couldn’t bring ourselves to do something we hate consistently, so make getting in shape fun, however you’ve gotta do it. That could be participating in a sport you love, exercising with a good friend or two, joining a group exercise class so you can meet new people, or giving yourself one “free day” per week where you forget about your training plan and exercise in any way you please.

7. You’re trying too hard.

Unless you want to experience some nasty cravings, don’t deprive your body of pleasure. The more you tell yourself you can’t have a food, the more you’re going to want it. As long as you’re making positive choices 80-90% of the time, don’t sweat the occasional indulgence.

8. You don’t track your progress.

Keeping a written record of your training progress will help you sustain an “I CAN do this” attitude. All you need is a notebook and a pen. For every workout, record what exercises you do, the number of repetitions performed, and how much weight you used if applicable. Your goal? Do better next time. Improving your best performance on a regular basis offers positive feedback that will encourage you to keep going.

9. You have no social support.

It can be hard to stay motivated when you feel alone. The good news? You’re not alone: far from it. Post a status on Facebook asking your friends if anybody would like to be your gym or accountability buddy. If you know a co-worker who shares your goal, try to coordinate your lunch time and go out together so you’ll be more likely to make positive decisions. Join a support group of like-minded folks on Facebook, LinkedIn, or elsewhere on the internet. Strength in numbers is powerful, so use it to your advantage.

10. You know your what but not your why.

The biggest reason why most New Year’s resolutions fail: you know what you want but you not why you want it.

Yes: you want to get fit, lose weight, or be healthy… but why is your goal important to you? For example:

Do you want to be fit so you can be a positive example that your children can admire and look up to?

Do you want to lose fat so you’ll feel more confident and sexy in your body than ever before?

Do you want to be healthy so you’ll have increased clarity, energy, and focus that would carry over into every single aspect of your life?

Whether you’re getting in shape because you want to live longer, be a good example, boost your energy, feel confident, have an excuse to buy hot new clothes, or increase your likelihood of getting laid (hey, I’m not here to judge) is up to you. Forget about any preconceived notions and be true to yourself.

  • The more specific you can make your goal,
  • The more vivid it will be in your imagination,
  • The more encouraged you’ll be,
  • The more likely it is you will succeed (because yes, you CAN do this!).

I hope this guide to why New Year’s resolutions fail helps you achieve your goals this year. If you found this helpful, please pass it along to some friends so they can be successful just like you. What do you hope to accomplish next year?
