Fashion Out of the man cave & into the countryside Gents, it's time we have a chat! Leave that man cave behind and start making some changes. Keep your mind and body healthy by getting out there and trying some new activities By RURAL’s fashion correspondent, Kasia Guzik from THE MANIA


It’s a man thing. Every woman has been on the receiving end of it. It’s difficult for women to understand men and for men to understand women. We are completely different physically, mentally and emotionally. Men have created their own space to have some ‘me time’ and there’s nothing wrong with it, but going from one extreme to another isn’t healthy either. All that working from home and self-isolation hasn’t made the situation any better. It’s never too late to turn things around and make some changes. You can still have some quality time alone and try a regular physical activity which is important for staying healthy. Compared to just sitting in your man cave for most of the time, moderateintensity physical activity will give you a better immune function and help your mental health as well. Regular physical activity can help you to reduce your stress and anxiety levels.

The countryside is a fantastic asset and we often forget to make the most of what’s right on our doorstep. Make a change and get back to outdoor activities such as cycling, golfing, fishing, running, surfing, horse riding and more. Some of them can be incredibly simple, whilst others require an element of dedication, skill or bravery. Motivate yourself and get inspired! The countryside is there to be enjoyed, and you and your family can fall in love with nature all over again despite all that Covid madness. Get your finest male country clothing out of the cupboard and head to the countryside to begin ticking activities off your list today. There're so many places waiting to be discovered and it's right on your doorstep. So are you ready to take on your next challenge? What are you waiting for? Every minute counts!
