Creating your own night routine


4 Comments

I’m probably more a night person than a morning one but my work has me up sometimes at 5am or getting home at midnight. So I can go to bed with a restful mind and then start the next day properly, I’ve created solid practices for both morning and night. In this post it’ll be the night routine. 7 habits to start your day you can find here.

  • Lay out my clothes – I’ll check the weather for the next day and my diary to see what clothes I might need then put the ensemble together, including any accessories.
  • Pack up my computer – I rarely use my computer until I get to work. If I need to check mail, I’ll do it on my iPhone. So I pack it up the night before including any cords and paperwork that I may need.
  • Notepad next to the bed with jotted down notes of things I have to do the following day. I have been known to wake up in a dozey state and scribble some unintelligible task n the notepad.
  • Brush and floss my teeth and at the moment, clean my Invisalign plates. Can’t go to bed without clean teeth.
  • Put on my Arbonne night gel. My skin dries out, particularly in winter so it needs rehydrating overnight. Click here to find the most amazing rep for Arbonne in Australia.
  • Drink a small glass of room temperature water. Too much and I’ll be trotting off to the toilet in the night which is a pain in the neck when camping.
  • Pyjamas – optional depending on temperature. Body making sure my body temperature is right ensures a good night of sleep
  • Go to bed listening to a meditation app. Simply Being is currently my favourite app and it’s free. Check it out here

My morning routine

We are all different and how we start our day is unique to everyone. I’m not really a morning person but I’ve never had trouble getting out of bed when I need to. So what’s your choice when that alarm goes off? Hit snooze and roll over or get up and start the day. Interestingly enough, I nearly always wake five minutes before my alarm goes off.

So here are some habits that I have that may help you start your day:Breakfast

Thoughts on living simply

Living simply isn’t about tossing all your worldly possessions and living out of your car. It’s about meaningful, deliberate action to minimise ‘the stuff’ that clutter our everyday life.

  • The excess
  • The gifts
  • The sentimental
  • The books
  • The clothes – OMG the clothes!
