Getting your resolution right will not only encourage (oh God, No!) healthy habits in life but when achieved they can also instil a large amount of pride. A certain amount of pride can do wonders for a man’s mental health. So cliché or not, keep your resolutions alive with these tips.


You know what this resolution has in common with your mother-in-law?

Everything – because she made the same one… for the past 5 years.

How does knowing that make you feel? No need to answer, that’s a rhetorical question because no man wants to be compared to their mother-in-law.

Start with small goals like trading favours for home-cooked meals three nights a week. Or if you’re working the man-chef angle, check out our recipe section for tongue tingling bites like the 3-Step Taco Salad Toss or the Healthy Nachos. Even those who are prone to toaster fires can make these simple recipes.
