They were crazy times, your years spent as a youth were. Even though you’re now a fully-fledged adult, with the bills and kids to prove it, it doesn’t mean you can’t relive the good old days once in a while. And even though you’ve been there, done that and got the t-shirt (which is now a bit tight on you), it doesn’t mean you can’t go there again and do it again (and maybe even get a new t-shirt). Here are two things you can do to reclaim your youth and give yourself the attention that you’ve, of late, only being giving to your significant other half and the kids.

Give yourself a manly-makeover

You remember the times when your finger was placed firmly on the pulse of the latest fashions, don’t you? Well why can’t your finger be there again? Now, this isn’t to say go and dig out all the old clothes you used to wear back then because in truth they’ll probably just look outdated. What this means is to go out and buy the latest trends. If you don’t even know where to start with that, well, it’s amazing what you can find out on the internet, these days. As well as your wardrobe, you can give yourself a make-over over too. Maybe it’s time to ditch the manual razor and go electric: the Braun Series 5 5090cc, first seen at Manly Matters, offers the very best an electric razor can offer, for example. In this day and age a whole host of styles of hair, beard and moustaches are widely accepted, so you can have the pick of the bunch.

Do anything that used to excite you in the past

Whether that was following your football team up and down the country on away days; going to your favourite music artists’ concerts whenever they were in town; camping out at festivals or even just camping out in general; or even going on track days or road trips in your favourite vehicles: do it. Granted, that may be a bit difficult if your favourite artists is sadly no longer with us, but any of the other options, or anything else that you may have loved doing that wasn’t mentioned, are there to be done by not only the youth of today but you! A word of warning, though: just make sure to receive confirmation from your wife that you can actually go out and do any of the things in your list prior to you actually doing them!

Track day

Reliving your past can be both an exciting, and dangerous thing to do, however. To put it bluntly but frankly: you’re not the same person you were all those years ago. You may go back and experience things that you used to enjoy, only to find that you really don’t enjoy them at all anymore — possibly tarnishing the memory of ever doing it, forever. So be cautious when setting out to reclaim your past, but most of all, try to enjoy every second of doing so, because who knows when you’ll next get to do them, if ever.
