Last is one for men. Some time ago in my search for help with developing mature manliness I came across The Art of Manliness, a blog "dedicated to uncovering the lost art of being a man", by Brett and Kate McKay.
Taking this quote from the historian and sociologist Lewis Mumford, “Every generation revolts against its fathers and makes friends with its grandfathers”, Brett and Kay have created a blog which, in their words:
“is a blog about growing up well, aimed at men and their unique challenges and interests. We explore all things manly — from the serious and philosophical to the practical and fun. We seek to uncover how to live with grandpa’s swagger, virtue, and know-how in the present age by wedding the best of the past to the best of the present. The end goal is to create a synergy of tradition and modernity that offers men a way forward and signposts on how to live an excellent, flourishing life. Ultimately, the Art of Manliness aims to encourage our readers to be better husbands, fathers, brothers, citizens — a new generation of great men.”
I highly recommend this blog for all men who want to understand what it means to be truly manly and how to become truly manly.
These are just three blogs that can help interject a regular dose of healthy into your life in important areas that can be difficult to navigate unaided. I pray they will be as encouraging, helpful and challenging for you as they have been for me. Enjoy!
