Men’s Lifestyle Trends for 2022

Few things are more important for males than their homes, bodies, and cars. If they are satisfied with where they live, what they look like, and the machine they drive, they will all likely be happy with their lives.

With that said, let us take a closer look at the most important trends in these three areas.

Home Improvement: Outdoor Relaxation

The vast majority of guys in this world enjoy being outdoors. Among other reasons, they cherish the freedom that comes with being outside a house or office building and love taking part in nature-based sports like hiking, mountain biking, trekking, or rafting. But most importantly, they want to breathe a bit of fresh air and relax.

Sadly, for many of us, this is no longer possible. We live in a time when the covid-19 global pandemic has forced many people to stay home for extended periods. And even if countries are beginning to reopen, there is still a long way to go before everything returns to what it used to be. Still, if you cannot go outside the confines of your property, why not bring the outdoors to you?

If you want to create an exterior space to relax, reenergize, or spend time with friends, a great option would be to look into a backyard pergola or gazebo. All you would need is a quality set of corrugated roofing sheets, a nice table, a few chairs, or a couch, and you’re good to go. Others ideas include a small shed, a personal workshop, or a garden fire pit.

Fitness: Functional, Masculine, and Sexy

For one reason or another, most women are attracted to athletes. Perhaps it is because of their chiseled bodies and physical strength. Or it could be due to their discipline, self-care, and goal-oriented mindset. Whatever the case might be, if you want to begin 2022 on the right foot, not only for the eyes of others but also for yourself, one of the best things you can do is start a new sport or engage in some kind of physical activity.

But which one should you choose? Which one will bring the results you want while at the same time providing you with a confidence boost? Answers to these and other questions might vary based on whom you ask. Nevertheless, few things are a better combination of functionality and strength than mixed martial arts or calisthenics.

Chances are most guys won’t be involved in a streetfight in their lives or join the Ultimate Fighting Championships. Still, that is not the sole purpose of MMA. It’s about learning how to protect yourself in case of an emergency, gaining some conviction, and looking great.

As for calisthenics, there aren’t many better ways to build real strength stemming from your core instead of just increasing the size of your muscles.

Cars: the Best of Both Worlds

When it comes to cars, there are usually two types of men. On the one hand, some love American muscle. If you are not familiar with the term, these are US-made vehicles from Ford, Chevrolet, and Buick. In addition, if you look under the hood, you will find giant, gas-guzzling engines with incredible amounts of horsepower.

On the other side of the spectrum are the guys who prefer something less imposing and loud, which will get them from point A to point B with as little damage to the environment as possible. For them, the roar of the machine they drive is not important. They also don’t wish to look like Vin Diesel’s The Fast and the Furious character Dominic Toretto.

Fortunately, we currently live in a world where both things are possible. Today, many vehicle companies are offering men of all ages the opportunity to feel strong and masculine with the cars they drive but without the carbon footprint that comes along with it. If you don’t believe it, all you need to do is look at the wide variety of eco-friendly sports cars at your local showroom.

We have taken a look at three key trends for guys in three different areas. The first is exterior home improvement ideas for relaxation and a touch of nature. The second is exploring full-body, functional workout options like mixed martial arts and calisthenics. Finally, it’s about finding the perfect combination between a powerful, sexy vehicle and one that helps protect the earth.

Guys will always be guys and behave accordingly. As such, these trends will continue to influence men’s decisions about the things that are important to them for the time to come.
