Regardless of your status in life, there are certain habits you can have that portray a lifestyle of luxury without pretending to be someone you’re not. It’s simply appreciating the finer things in life and tweaking your habits to give yourself that luxurious experience.
Not everyone is going to make millions of dollars or travel to exotic destinations or own a yacht and a private jet. But that shouldn’t stop you from having luxurious habits that suit you and that are within your reach.
It gets to a certain point in your life when relaxation isn't how you’d have done it in college or high school going out and partying or clubbing and dancing. A luxurious habit for relaxation is much more gentlemanly and dignified and involves a serene environment, a quality relaxing drink like whisky with a tint of coffee, and perhaps calm music with cigars.
In this type of environment, you can enjoy deep conversations, think about a lot of things, catch up on some texts from friends and family, and also read a few pages of a book. Evenings are always the best for this type of setting and it is also nice to be properly dressed in a slightly unbuttoned shirt, pant trousers, stylishly folded sleeves, and loafers for comfort.
You can get yourself a small table and a comfortable seat by the fire on cold evenings and warmer nights, staying by the pool would be great or if you have access to any body of water for that cool breeze and the view, it would be much more ideal for your relaxing evening.
The idea of whiskey with coffee and cigar is based on the successful elite country club men whose image you can see once you picture those three things together in combination and they are in fact, perfect complements of one another.
Because the idea is to relax, the coffee is there to give that rejuvenating feeling after you must have had a long day. The whiskey sets the mood with that taste of bliss and it’s a drink that gets you to slow down if it’s to be enjoyed properly which is why a luxurious gentleman’s evening usually includes a glass of this classy drink.
A luxurious man isn’t trying to always be in the company of another because he is fine being by himself with his thoughts when it’s time to relax. Whiskey is a drink for that alone time unless you’re with a very close friend then it can work in that setting too, and the older the whiskey, the richer it is.
Cigars are a lot more flashy components of the luxurious lifestyle and although it’s not everyone who is a fan of smoking cigars, there’s no doubt that this image depicts a successful and capable man. But whatever your preferences are, it’s not just about the specifics of having a cigar in hand.
It’s bringing all these attributes of a perfect gentleman together and incorporating them into your lifestyle. Of course, having habits like this would be a bit expensive to maintain but it’s not a reason to deny yourself the lifestyle once in a while even if it’s just for relaxation at first.
