Bachelor Rituals

Rituals are important to the bachelor.  Perhaps you have a certain morning ritual. You have your coffee, your bagel (or more healthy equivalent), you read your paper, etc. Then off to work, or whatever you do to pay the bills.

It is a tradition, it is the formal start of your day. Rituals are a good idea, they give you structure, they can also springboard you into better habits.

What kind of new rituals can you incorporate in your day to make you a better bachelor?

If exercise is something you want to add to your lifestyle, (and you should), perhaps you might want to add that to your morning ritual. Get it out of the way before you come up with a thousand and one excuses why you can’t exercise.

It is a great way to jump start your day, as long as you don’t overdo it.

Perhaps you want to add a “Happy Hour” ritual to your day.  When work is done, and it’s time for fun, why not have a signature cocktail at 5:00 PM or whatever is your equivalent of Happy Hour.  It gives you something to look forward to, and it separates your work day from your personal time.

There may be a whole bunch of new habits that would improve your bachelor lifestyle.  If you make them part of a ritual, the chances are greater that you will keep to those habits, and make yourself a better man.

Let’s say, for example, you want to be a better dressed bachelor. Useful for both professional and personal advancement.

You might want to have a ritual, the evening before your dress up day, where you carefully select your wardrobe for the coming morning, and you place it on a valet (preferably) or a hanger.

You do this to the accompaniment of some of your favorite music.  Here is an example of what I am talking about

So think about what rituals might benefit you, and what new habits you want to incorporate in them.
