Having a nighttime routine is just as important as having a morning routine. For on the go people like yourself, it is important to set time aside in the evening to decompress and get ready for the day ahead. Things get a little complicated when you have to get the rest of your family on board which is why Manzanilla Sophia is here to share some of our best night time routine advice!
Set a Bedtime
The first thing you need to do is set a bedtime. Make sure you consider how long it will take you to fall asleep. So, calculate when you’ll need to be in bed and when you’ll actually fall asleep to fit within that time frame. Then, plan the rest of your evening accordingly and get everybody on board.
Relax, Relax, Relax!
When we get home from work or running errands the first thing we all want to do is relax. Don’t fight it! Have some dinner, spend time with your loved ones, and then kick your feet back and relax. Read a book, if that’s not your thing, turn on the TV and watch your favorite show. We highly recommend just disconnecting. Leave your phone and don’t think about your work life outside of this moment.
Make a To-Do List and Prepare for Tomorrow
Once you’ve had a little ‘me time’ start planning out your schedule for the next day. To increase the following day’s productivity, make a list of tasks you need to complete and define what time blocks during the day you’ll do them in. Get everything you need ready for tomorrow. Finally, get the kids and the husbands ready for bed!
Self care is essential. It can promote better physical and mental well being. Treat yourself to a relaxing hot bath, put on your robe, and start your skin care. Draw out your routine and include your favorite lotions, masks, serums, and more. Not only is this relaxing, but it preps your skin for the next day especially for those of us who have to wear a full face throughout our work schedule. While taking care of your skin has many benefits, we forget how much our eyes go through too. Many of our jobs require technology and staring at a screen all day can tire out our eyes. Show your eyes some love and try refreshing eye drops. Our all natural chamomile infused drops can soothe and refresh your eyes for a better night’s sleep and a refreshing next morning.
It may not be the easiest thing to fall asleep once our bedtime comes. During the time we set to get in bed before actually falling asleep, try playing relaxing music or nature sounds which are free to find on many platforms. Relaxing scents whether it be lavender or a soothing mist can also help relax your body and mind. Meditation before bed can also help you sleep better and promote overall calmness. Have your alarm set and ready for the next day. A productive night time routine and sleep can lead to a proactive next day.
