Can't Stick To a Resolution? Blame it on Your Gender

Lose a few pounds. Find a new job. Get promoted. Travel. Save more money. No matter what age you are, chances are that at some point you've made a New Year's resolution. Whether you kept it or not is a different story entirely. But new information from a study by psychologists at the University of Hertfordshire reveal that whether you actually stick to them may come down to your gender.

According to a story on Fox21 News about the study, men were more likely to keep resolutions if they were broken down into more manageable goals. For example, instead of "I want to win the Boston Marathon", men need more "I want to run for half an hour three times a week", at least at the start. With more realistic goals in place, the study admits, men are much more likely to meet their resolutions. And what about women? Apparently the way to a successful resolution is with a strong social support system.

So while men might still be taking the strong, silent approach to resolutions, they should probably conquer the Bunny Hill before the Black Diamond.

Baby steps, anyone?

Air Travel Tips for Men on the Go

The start of the holiday season is just around the corner, and with it comes the onslaught of holiday travel. While it seems to be an unavoidable evil of the season, there are some things men can do to make it through in one piece. has a great set of tips for surviving the worst that's thrown at you at the airport: lost luggage, overbooked flights and even delays. Here's more tips we've come up with so you look (and feel) your best while you travel:

1. Take along your own water bottle and drink frequently during the flight to keep your body (and skin) hydrated.

2. Avoid alcoholic and caffeinated beverages, as they can deplete moisture supplies and leave you feeling wired, tired or worse yet, hung over.

3. Head to the restroom every hour or so to splash some lukewarm water on your face: it wakes skin up and gets blood flowing in your legs and feet.

4. Pack a travel-size moisturizer in your carry-on and use whenever your skin feels dry.

5. Nasal passageways are easily dried out by airplane air, so take along an over-the-counter nose spray to diminish congestion.

6. Reduce tightness around your eyes by rubbing in a hydrating, nutrient-rich cream like eye cream and using eye drops to diminish their bloodshot appearance.

7. Try to get as much sleep as you can on the plane.

8. After you arrive at your destination, take a warm shower or bath as soon as possible.
