WHY YOUR NIGHT ROUTINE IS JUST AS IMPORTANT
AS YOUR MORNING ROUTINE
If done right your night routine can be just as powerful as your morning routine.
This is the time where you can take the time to reflect upon how your day went and the perfect opportunity to prepare for the next day.
Having a night routine creates a space for you to relax after a long day. This will then allow you to have a better sleep at night. I’m not referring to falling asleep while watching a show, but actually having a ritual to decompress yourself for a good night’s sleep.
Resting, recuperating, and recharging is just as important as nourishing and moving your body. A good night’s sleep will make your mornings better because you will wake up more energized. When you feel energized, you will be more productive and focused at the work that you do. Aside from that, during sleep, your body is also working to repair muscle, organs, and cells. This is why it is important to create a solid night routine that will prepare you for sleep.
I am about to share 3 things you can start to create your own night routine and also I’ll like to mention a couple more things that will improve your quality of sleep:
Have your last meal at least 3 hours before bed
Limit caffeine intake at least 6 hours before bed
Limit blue-screen exposure from your devices 3o minutes before bed
HOW TO BUILD A SOLID NIGHT ROUTINE
PREPARE FOR THE NEXT DAY
The next day starts the night before. Prepare the things you would need such as
the clothes that you will wear or write down the things you need to do for the following day. Planning and preparing for the next day doesn’t take as much time as you think. What it does however is set you up for success.
Ending your day with a warm cup of tea allows your body to settle down. Your body did a lot for you that day, especially your digestive system. So having a cup of tea that supports healthy digestion is incredibly beneficial. I personally love the Detox or Sleep Tea from Sakara.

JOURNAL AND REFLECT
This is the most important part of all, I should say, because the only way for you to evaluate and measure how you did that day is to reflect on it. Take some quiet time to reflect on how you did that day and how you can be better the next day.
Grab your journal and answer these questions:
What did I learn today?
What have I accomplished today?
What do I feel grateful for today?
What can I do to be better tomorrow?
