SANTA OR NO SANTA?
Thanksgiving through the New Year offer some of the most exciting holidays of the year. These are times when families are typically brought together, snow is piling outside, candles are lit and there is no end to the tasty treats on the table. This is also the time of the year when Santa Claus is virtually everywhere around us including in stores, on billboards, in social media ads, in films and all kinds of TV commercials. It reminds us that the holidays are here and we are supposed to feel happy, peaceful and fulfilled.
However, this time of the year can also be quite emotional and stressful, especially for men.
Year-end closing reports at work, the pressure from the hectic search for gifts, excessive spending and even New Year’s resolutions all can contribute to a good amount of pressure and a few more greys in your hair. To top it all off, there are so many social events, that we need to look on top of our game.
Ironically, being middle aged men with lots of grey hair and a mostly grey beard does not necessarily provide any relief from looking like Santa. Christmas and New Year’s celebrations are when more men are conscious about their looks than any other time of the year. If you are one of those who chooses not to look or feel like Santa during the Christmas holidays the following can help you get through it with less stress, with more style and more energy:
- DON’T WAIT TILL THE LAST MINUTE, BUT DO WAIT FOR THE DEALS
Shopping the last minute is a bad decision. It’s not only extremely stressful but you will also get pounded with the worst deals. The best time for Christmas shopping is Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This is when the best deals of the year come up. Plan ahead.
- AVOID MADNESS AT ALL MEANS
There is nothing worse than crowded stores and packed parking lots during the Christmas shopping spree. Avoid the crowded and frantic stores. Save your time and sanity by shopping online or go to the mall at off times.
- DON’T LET PEOPLE CALL YOU SANTA
Get a haircut, groom that beard and throw in some color such as Volt Instant Beard Color. Take care of yourself. You will not only look better but you will also feel better around your friends and family. Find your beard color shade here
- GET SOME EXERCISE
Christmas generally means an increase in food consumption and less time in the gym. Make sure you find a break for yourself and hit that exercise even if it is for a short time. It will help to keep the weight down and feel more energy.
Don’t let the Holiday consume you, enjoy it. We at Volt Lifeproof Grooming Team wish you a happy Holiday.
