You have probably read a lot of creating morning routines to set your day up for success. We even have an article on our site all about adding the Miracle Morning to your life her at Fave Lifestyles. A morning routine is awesome and totally necessary, but what about an evening self-care routine that ends your day on a good note? We think that is necessary as well. Here are the things we think you should think of including in your bedtime routine.
Get Away from the Screens
First, and most important, get away from screens 60 minutes before you are going to sleep. The light off of screens delays sleep. So, if you are looking at your phone while you are lying in bed, it will take a while to fall asleep.
Reflect on the Day
We all have good days and not so good days. Often, when we craw into bed our minds are still going a mile a minute and it is really hard to unwind. Journaling is a great way to unpack the day, do some reflection and attempt to let it all go. After you have gotten your thoughts out of your head and onto paper it is easier to relax and go to sleep.
Bed Time Beauty Routine
An evening beauty routine is just as important as your morning routine. It is necessary to take your make-up off and brush your teeth but you can also add something else in that you enjoy like a bath, a face mask or simply putting lotion on that you love. Choose something that is a little treat and you will want to do every night.
Create A Calming Sleep Space
Spend some time and money creating a lovely and calm sleep space. We spend a large portion of our lives in bed, so make sure you have a good matters, pillows and great linens. You can also find lovely linen sprays that have calming scents like lavender that relax the body.
Wind Down Activity
Choose an activity that helps you wind down before sleep. Reading is a great activity to calm down the brain and relax. You can also listen to soft music or a sleep story, something that really helps your brain slow down and prepare for sleep.
By creating a bedtime self-care routine, you reward yourself for another great day and set yourself up for a great night sleep!
