Last week I discussed having a morning routine to get your day off to a good start but it is also important to end it right as well. Today we will be going over night time routines.
Step 1- Choose a time. How much time do you want to spend unwinding at the end of the day? Mine is immediately after supper (usually around 6pm).
Step 2– What do you enjoy doing at home? Make sure you do at least 2 things for yourself during your evening routine (I catch up on at least 1 TV show & read a minimum of 5 chapters of whatever book I am reading)
Step 3– Make tidiness a priority. Set aside at least 10 minutes for a quick tidy. Load the dishwasher, put everything back in it’s place (remember: a place for everything and everything in it’s place), wipe down the counters/tables etc.
Step 4– What helps you relax? Coloring, breathing exercises, yoga, baths etc. What is your relaxation technique? For me it’s bubble baths
Step 5– Prepare for tomorrow.Do a brain dump, pack your bag, choose your outfit/makeup/accessories/shoes, set your alarm.
Step 6– Choose a bed time. Choose a time and stick to it as often as you can, every night if possible.
My evening routine:
1800- Tidy up after supper (fill & run dishwasher, wipe counter & tables, pick up anything laying around the house, change litter)
1815- Blog & Social Media
1915- Take bath & get in PJs
1945- Watch TV
2215- Next day prep
2330- Go to sleep
Do you have an evening routine? what is included in it?
