5 Healthy Habits that Will Help Boost Your Masculine Energy

162

Let's cut to the chase: the world is changing so fast that we can barely keep up with the pace. As we get older, the testosterone levels begin to fall and it becomes even harder to perform at our best. Does this sound familiar? Well, there are some habits you can do to keep yourself grounded with masculine energy. It begins with discovering yourself and taking control of your life.

Read on and learn more.

Do martial arts


For most of us in the Western world, we have lost our ability to respond to fight and flight responses. Thankfully, martial art is a wonderful vehicle for masculinity. If you missed out on tumble play when growing up, it's the perfect way of capturing that essential time of male growth. While learning a number of techniques may feel unnatural at first, it pays huge dividends. As you perform at a higher level, you'll learn how to embrace the wave of anger.

Practice deadlifts, bench press, and squats

If you want to build a strong core, you should incorporate deadlift, squats, and bench exercises in your daily regime. Here, a fixed-rep pattern is used. For beginners, you should start with lightweight and then work your way up. It's worth mentioning that you should do them in proper form to avoid injuries. With time, your body will build a sense of mastery. But because weights don't fight back, you should also do some strength training exercises.

Some of the benefits of exercising include:

  • Connects you to the warrior within
  • Helps you set strong boundaries
  • Boosts your self-confidence
  • Improves critical thinking and analytical skills
  • Mental clarity
  • Eat the right food

    Red meat has a positive effect on your masculine energy. It's enriched with nutrients that increase testosterone levels. Compared to other foods, red meat will give you an edge after a workout. But, did you know you can't rely on food alone to boost your testosterone level? This is where Testogen comes in. It contains natural ingredients that work in harmony to boost your testosterone levels. Unlike other supplements out there, this product is scientifically proven to be safe and effective. It works best for bodybuilders, athletes, and older men who want to boost their testosterone levels.

    Mountain and rock climbing


    Nature offers you a chance to find out what you're really made of. We're not meant to live in cages or tied to our computer the whole day. It's all about reconnecting with the planet we live in. To boost your masculine energy, you should learn how to explore the forest and mountains. Reconnecting with nature will help you find out what you're really capable of. Take this as a challenge.

    Lifting your body weight up a cliff is a sure-fire way of developing strength. Although you're often harnessed to safety, there's an undeniable rush that you want to push your way higher and higher. Of course, it takes courage to succeed a higher notch.

    Competing with other men

    In its physical form, masculine energy requires that you stay around men. When we spend time with our buddies, we can eliminate female-related dependencies and build a meaningful relationship. Ideally, you should participate in masculine activities like exploring a new city or even participating in a basketball game.

    Conclusion

    There are many things you can do to bring back your masculine power. The secret is to continue challenging yourself in new ways and then work toward living a meaningful life. When you incorporate the above habits into your life, you'll feel more masculine each passing day.

    In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

    But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

    Scrolling through Twitter this week had me rolling on the floor laughing as I read some of the hilarious tweets from ladies who, whether in a relationship or not, shared reactions to the news that PlayStation 5 is on its way

    As this "buy your boyfriend a PS5" joke takes off across the internet, let's just say, there are a few things your BF should be doing before dropping $499 on the new gaming system — or, if the tweets are real for some, before you buy it for him as a gift.

    Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

    The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.

    35664

    When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

    However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

    Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

    For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

    20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

    Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.

    I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

    What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

    I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

    It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.

    5871

    We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

    For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

    Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.
