Everyone should have a man cave. Doesn't matter if you're a man, a woman, and child, or a hedgehog. And hedgehogs know what I'm saying.
What is a man cave? It's your freaking fortress of solitude! It's your den, your happy place. I always say that everyone needs a place to zen out and sink back into some cushions. Here are a few ideas for creating your perfect man cave:
Amber, red, UV, &/or blacklights: set the mood. The man cave is the place to be near the end of the day, not the beginning. It's evolutionary that we should have lower lighting, and lower-spectrum lighting to get us in the parasympathetic state - rest and digest. Blue light, from bright lights, LED, cars, screens, phones, etc stimulate us because of the high frequencies, breaking us out of that relaxed vibe. Keep them the hell out of my man cave! No screens, either, to make that clear.
Vinyl or other high quality sound systems: Never settle for any lower quality systems. If you don't know this, YOU HAVE to hear the difference between higher and lower quality systems. Blows my mind every time. I tell you, I say, I tell you!
- Posters of people or movies or bands you admire and love.
Enough said. It doesn't have to be total luxury, at worst find a spot in a cemetery or in the woods, some place calm to go to and shut up. You'll never know the peace that comes from solitude.
Make a man cave. HUSTLE and MERRY XMAS :)
