Welcome back to my blog! We are 21 days into Blogtober and only 5 days away from New York! Because I am so busy I thought it would be a good idea to share with you guys my productive night routine!
I shared my morning routine a little while back and even though it has changed a little I still can’t get everything done! So I have come up with a quick routine to clean up my house, get my work done, prepare for the morning and makes me feel sooo much better!
So keep reading to learn how you too can make the most of your evenings!
My Night Routine
The end of the day for me doesn’t come until about 11pm and my routine takes about half an hour to complete and if I am feeling lazy I will cut a few things out so I can just get to bed!
I start by picking up Bo’s toys, he loves to pull them all out, and if I have been using a blanket I like to fold it up and put it away and basically pick up the living room so it looks nice in the morning.
I then do the same to the kitchen. If I haven’t already started the dishwasher I will load it and start it. Afterwards I will wipe down all the counters and get my coffee ready. I do this so all I have to do is push a button. Breakfast is sometimes a struggle for Duncan and I so I like to make sure everything good and ready to go before I climb into bed.
Once I feel as if the house looks and feels clean I will let Bo out to go potty one more time and lock the door before I start my night time skin routine. If I want to wash my hair the next day I will rub coconut oil throughout my hair to soak over night.
How to Create Your own Night Routine
Determine what time you want to get in bed, I try to be in bed anywhere between midnight and one am so I know that I need to start my routine with in a half hour of so of when I want to be in bed.
Ask yourself what you want your routine to be like, do you want it relaxed or productive, maybe you want it to include your dinner and spending time with family. Figure out what you want to do every night that will help you in the morning.
Lay out your plan, what do you want to do first and what do you want to do last? Sit down and write down everything you want to do that night before bed.
Start doing it! Start early and as you get the hang of it you will be able to determine when you need to start your routine.
They say it takes 21 days to form a habit; that’s just 3 weeks! So take your time and figure out what works best for you and your family before you commit to a routine. Once you find the right routine for you practice it until it is second nature! A good routine will help keep you relaxed, keep your house clean, and will clear your mind before bed.
