Which Beard Style Is Right for You?

Which Beard Style Is Right for You?

If you could grow a beard, which kind would you want to have?

A lot of decisions are to be made when deciding on the right facial hair style. Having a beard is a big commitment. There are some reasons you should have one and some why you should not. The beard is symbolically associated with masculinity, but the fact remains that images like the ones on the Sistine chapel tell a very different story. In those images, God is the one with the beard, not man. With a beard, you can wield a power so awesome that Zeus himself foretold of its power.

This man is at competition for beards, it’s a guys competition but women are welcome to watch, and do. A bearded man can make a women weak in the knees, and the kids will never shy away from a Santa with a majestic beard like this one.

    Pros: Women love them, men love them, why don’t you have one?

    The benefits of having a beard would compile into a very large list. You can look fatherly for your children and manly for your woman. If you can’t grow a full beard there’s nothing to fear, you can always get products to make your facial hair grow better. Can’t see it? Dye it. Your facial hair is perfect, even if you are a woman.

      Cons: None

      Okay, sometimes food gets caught in it, but that isn’t that bad is it? It’s just another thing to wash later and there are shampoos and oils just for beard hygiene. The fact is that there is no reason that you shouldn’t grow a beard if you can. This is not just a trend, beards are here to stay. Unless men somehow become some sort of hairless freaks, beards will be popular. If a beard looks good on you than you have to grow one, at least once.

        This is literally me with a beard.  

        So which kind do you want?

        There are many types of beards. You can let the mustache grow or trim it like I did. Put wax in you mustache and curl it up, get creative with it and shape your beard into something wonderful. Do you want a small one? Trim it then. You can shave a goatee, or even a strip on the jawline. There are more than enough ways to shape it up. There are world beard championships and they have 17 different categories for beards and mustaches that they judge.

          The Garibaldi is a rounded beard thats wide on the sides and is medium in length. the mustache is not very long but if you don’t like to trim the sides this is the beard for you. Many people don’t like to comb their beard and all you would have to do to look like this would be to not do that. At all.

            This one is The Kaiser and is basically a twisted mustache. If you don’t like your mustache to be in the way this one is right for you. It’s classical and classy with a hint of eccentricity. This is a winner from the World Beard Championships, but this might look better on you. A long mustache can be cool aesthetic especially if combined it with the beard.

              This Freestyle beard is not a category to be taken lightly. A lot of work was put into the making of this beard. You have to shape and shape, and use lots of hair product. But if you’re diligent enough you can have a beard as crazy as this one!

                And then we have the traditional beard. These beards have one thing in common. The men that grow them don’t shave, at all, for a very long time. This is will power at its finest. Just don’t shave for about 20 years and you’ll have this result. I don’t think this man has ever bought a razor in his life, or used one.

                12 Practical Tips To Stay Fit For Christmas

                12 Practical Tips To Stay Fit For Christmas

                Christmas is approaching fast, and lots of people not only tend to ruin their usual diets, but they also gain a few extra pounds. Based on studies, the majority of people tend to gain additional weight during the holiday season that starts at the Thanksgiving Day and ends with the New Year celebrations. Excessive eating is claimed to be the main cause for the additional weight gain, but it is also due to lack of physical activity and exercise.

                A lot of individuals out there tend to set aside their fitness routines during the holidays since they believe that they do not have enough time to perform their workouts. And because they feel guilty after the holiday season, most of the gyms and fitness centers are packed with fresh members. Always bear in mind that you can still enjoy the holidays and stay fit at the same time. If you want to stay fit during the holiday season, especially during Christmas and the New Year’s Eve, here are some useful tips that might help you:

                1. Eat Before Heading Out

                First, it is best that you eat something before heading out to visits, trips or family dinners. By doing so, you will no longer be tempted to eat a lot or overindulge yourself since you have already eaten. Skipping on meals is not a good idea either, because you will only be forced to eat more later.

                2. Select The Treats

                Make sure to select the treats that you eat in a wise manner. You should choose something that you can only enjoy during the holiday season and not something that is readily available all the time.

                3. Avoid Skipping Meals

                Don’t skip meals, especially breakfast! Even though it can be tempting to skip on certain meals, believing that it will make up for the treats you consumed in the previous day, don’t do it because it will only lead to counterproductive results.

                4. Drink With Moderation

                It is best to regulate your drinking since alcohol, coke or other juices will only add more calories to the ones you already eaten!

                5. Be Active

                You should still perform your fitness routine whenever possible and if you can’t do that, simply walk more, park your car some distance away from the store or just use the stairs!

                6. Get Out Of The House

                Make the holidays a family affair and plan outdoor activities where everyone is involved. Even a snowball fight in the backyard will burn a lot of calories and will keep the children entertained.

                7. Don’t Skip Your Strength Workouts

                Always remember to perform your strength training in order to maintain that muscle mass you worked hard to get. You might be tempted to use lightweights and just do some cardio, but you can burn just as many calories by lifting weights. And with all of those extra stakes you had on the holiday meals, you might even gain some extra muscle. And this is much better than gaining some extra fat.

                8. Set Realistic Goals

                You should set realistic exercise objectives. Aim for at least half an hour per day and you will be very happy when you will achieve that. If you plan one hour or more and not achieve it, you will only end up disappointed.

                9. Enjoy Yourself

                Also make sure to set realistic diet plans! Trying to restrain yourself totally from some foods will only make you eat more. Feel free to enjoy the treats that you really love, but in small portions.

                10. Drink A Lot Of Water

                This can satiate your appetite as well as keep you hydrated at all times. And it will also prevent a possible hangover if you overdo it with alcohol.

                11. Eat Less And More Often

                Distribute your meals evenly throughout the day, and do not eat everything at once.  Instead of having 2 enormous meals, have 5 small ones.  Eat your dinner earlier and have a nice walk before going to bed.

                12. Prioritize Your Workouts

                Try to do them early in the morning while everyone else is still sleeping. This way you will also avoid remarks like “Oh, come on! It’s Christmas…”

                So there you go! Twelve simple tips that will help you avoid gaining weight during the winter holidays, but will also allow you to enjoy yourself and have a great time with your loved ones.

                Happy Holidays everyone!
