The Ultimate Gentleman Cheat Sheet Every Man Needs

The Ultimate Gentleman Cheat Sheet Every Man Needs

Have you ever been out for the evening and witnessed a classy-looking man who was well put together and knew all the right things to say and do? Almost like he knew what to do or was prepared in every way for anything coming his way? Well, let me be the one to tell you, you were witness to the rare and illusive gentleman. Some women think seeing a true gentleman is like seeing a unicorn or having a leprechaun hand you a map to his pot of gold.

Having the male gene does not mean you are a gentleman. In fact, not every guy has it in him to be a gentleman. Part of being a gentleman can be taught while other parts seem like they are ingrained into the man. The list of infographics below is a gentleman cheat sheet. A gentleman is not always the good guy. A gentleman is usually the best suited up, smoothest talking, single malt whiskey drinker in the building.

Take a look at the information in them. I have no doubt may know some of the information. Here is a good reason you might consider learning to be a gentleman: A woman sees a man in a perfectly tailored suit in much the same way as a man looks at a women in lingerie. There is a reason Frank Sinatra and the fictional Don Draper had ladies swooning when they entered a room… they were gentlemen.

Some people say the clothes make the man. An air of sophistication, the allure of manners and possibly a better life are all part of the mystique. Being a true gent is truly a combination of many things and that’s what this ultimate gentleman cheat sheet is all about.

                                                    How to Keep Yourself Awake at Work Without Caffeine

                                                    Keeping yourself awake at work can be a real challenge when you’re bored, exhausted or sleep-deprived.

                                                    But before you reach for that can of Red Bull, bottle of Mountain Dew, or pot of coffee, try these healthy remedies to stimulate your 5 different senses and help you stay awake at work:

                                                    Sight – Visual Stimulation

                                                    The first thing you do when you wake up is opening your eyes, so your visual stimulation is very important to keeping your energy level high.

                                                    1. Maximize your exposure to light.

                                                    Your body’s internal rhythm is regulated by the amount of light you receive. The greater your exposure, the more alert you will feel.

                                                    Open the shades and let in the sunlight. Step outside or look out the window. Turn on all the artificial lights in your office or around your work space.

                                                    2. Exercise your eyes (or give them a break).

                                                    Roll your eyes up and down, side to side and diagonally. Rotate them clockwise and then counterclockwise. Squeeze them shut and then open them wide. Do this several times.

                                                    Reading and sitting in front of a computer screen for long periods can lead to eye fatigue.

                                                    Take regular breaks with deliberate blinking and looking out into the distance.

                                                    3. Take note of your environment.

                                                    Learn to enjoy people-watching. Observe their activities, speech, body language and interactions with others. Notice the details of building, trees and other objects around you, including their color, shape and size.

                                                    By doing this, you’re not only relaxing your eye muscles but also calming your mind.

                                                    Hearing – Auditory Stimulation

                                                    What you hear or listen to have direct effect on your brain. This is why we feel so annoyed and sometimes angry when we hear construction noise when we’re working.

                                                    4. Engage in conversation.

                                                    Talk to a friend or colleague. Trade funny stories. Discuss your business venture, a creative idea, the latest political scandal, or any other topic that interests you.

                                                    Practice mindful listening to what you and the other person are saying. Tune into the tone, volume and content of the conversation.

                                                    Learn how to practice better listening from this guide:

                                                    Why Listen to Reply Instead of Understand Is the Key to Failure

                                                    5. Listen to upbeat music.

                                                    Try hip hop, rock or jazz to keep you alert. Instrumental, non-distracting music works best.

                                                    Sing, whistle, and hum along if you can. Plug in the earphones if you must.

                                                    Smell – Olfactory Stimulation

                                                    If you’re feeling sleepy and suddenly smell the coffee, you’ll probably feel more energetic. This is why smell is an influential stimulation.

                                                    6. Work your nose.

                                                    Aroma therapists recommend essential oils of peppermint (to boost energy), rosemary (to build awareness), eucalyptus (to increase oxygen), cedarwood  (to activate your mind), and cinnamon (to improve your reaction time).

                                                    If you don’t have essential oils on hand, you can use lotions or burning candles that provide the same scents.

                                                    Advertising

                                                    Citrus like lemons, limes, grapefruits and oranges are also natural olfactory stimulants. Get a whiff of these citrus scents to stay awake.

                                                    Taste – Gustatory Stimulation

                                                    If you want an energetic day at work, you can’t let your tongue feeling plain and flavorless.

                                                    7. Have a good breakfast.

                                                    Start off with the most important meal of the day.

                                                    Think fresh, light and healthy: bran cereals, wholegrain breads, fruits, and yogurt.

                                                    Nix the heavy stuff like sausages, greasy eggs or pancakes.

                                                    8. Drink lots of water.

                                                    Keep a glass or bottle of H2O near you and sip from it throughout the day. Dehydration can leave you feeling tired, sluggish and sleepy.

                                                    So make sure you drink enough water throughout the day. Not sure how much to drink? This can help you:

                                                    9. Eat energy-boosting snacks.

                                                    Nuts and fruits (like bananas, apples and strawberries) are sure bets. Pairings with staying power include baby carrots with a low-fat cream cheese dip; celery sticks with peanut butter; red peppers with hummus; and plain yogurt with granola.

                                                    Avoid carb-filled, sugary snacks that make you crash and leave you feeling tired.

                                                    Touch – Tactile Stimulation

                                                    Last but not least, your sense of touch will make you physically feel more energetic and less stressful.

                                                    10. Splash cold water on your face.

                                                    Do this in the morning, during bathroom breaks and in the afternoon. Being exposed to cold water pushes your body to adjust and regulate its internal temperature, which in turn keeps you alert.

                                                    This works the same as you take a cold shower to increase mood and alertness. Take a look at this article to learn more about it:

                                                    11. Use acupressure.

                                                    Apply pressure to, massage, or tap on the stimulation points of your body. These include the top of your head, the back of your neck, the back of your hand (between the thumb and index finger), just below the knee and your earlobes.
