Why Nightly Routines are MORE Important Than Morning Routines.

Struggling with insomnia during my college years led me to discover the importance of a well-crafted nighttime routine...

I learned that just as a morning routine can set the tone for a successful day, a nighttime routine is equally critical. It not only prepares your body and mind for restful sleep but also positions you for a productive morning.

The primary goal of a nighttime routine is to signal to your body and brain that it's time for bed, facilitating a smoother transition into sleep. For those who already enjoy activities like showering, reading, or meditating before bedtime, I'll show you how to combine them into a comprehensive nightly routine that primes you for sleep, AND success the next day.

Examples of activities to prime your body and mind for sleep:

  • Dimming the lights to signify 'bedtime' to your brain.
  • Engage in essential bedtime hygiene, including brushing your teeth and washing your face.
  • Enjoy a relaxing shower, helps to unwind and wash away the day's stress.
  • Prioritize your health by taking your nightly vitamins an supplements (NOT sleeping pills).
  • Wind down with caffeine-free tea to soothe your nerves.
  • Do a bedtime meditation to calm your thoughts.
  • Write down things you're grateful for.
  • Lay on an acupressure mat to relax.
  • Power up your essential oil diffuser with scents like lavender, chamomile, & thyme.

Examples of activities to prime yourself for the next day:

  • Set out your clothes for the next day.
  • Enhance productivity by jotting down three tasks for the next day.
  • Visualize your next day's plans as you drift off to sleep.

Now, it's your turn to create your own personalized nightly routine. Writing it down not only solidifies your commitment but also reinforces it in your mind. Here are some examples to inspire you:
