Self Care in the Night Time.

The things you do right before bed can have a big impact on your life.

It’s a great time to start a daily ritual, because the day is winding down and you’re not rushing around to get things done.

 

Read a self-improvement book:

Pick one of these life-changing self-improvement books as some night time reading before you doze off. If you pick something too exciting, such as a fantasy or mystery novel, you might not be able to put it down before bed.

 

Brush and floss:

Brushing and flossing your teeth has a huge impact on your health. Unhealthy gums can lead to serious conditions, such as heart and respiratory disease. Further, you’ll have a higher chance of losing your teeth as you age if you don’t start brushing and flossing. Here are other scary conditions you may suffer from if you don’t pick up better dental habits.

 

Get ready for the next day:

Prepare all your things the night before — your lunch and outfit — so you’re not scrambling around in the morning.

 

Stretch:

Stretching is a good habit to pick up. Not only is it better for your joints and flexibility, but it can also help with your sleep.

 

Go to bed 15 minutes early:

Try this simple trick — go to bed 15 minutes earlier than you plan to. People aren’t getting enough sleep, and sleep deprivation can have serious effects on your health and productivity. By going to bed earlier, you can change long-engrained habits and stop procrastinating going to sleep.

Remove your makeup:

You may be too tired to take off your makeup, but you need to start putting it into practice if you want healthy skin. Leaving makeup on overnight clogs your pores and prevents sebum, a natural serum your skin secretes to moisturise itself, from working properly. This can also lead to acne. If you don’t clean your face before you sleep, the free radicals from the environment that latch onto you during the day stay on your skin overnight, which can lead to a breakdown in collagen, thus resulting in fine lines.

 

Journal:

If you have anything that is clogging your mind or even making you a bit foggy – grab you journal, write it down. Writing things down gets them off your mind + you will feel better.

 

Write down what you’re grateful for:

Name one to three things you’re grateful for every night in a notebook, and it’ll help you think more positively. Gratitude is known to be a really powerful tool that can help you appreciate the things you take for granted. It’s so easy to focus on the negative in your day and forget or dismiss the positive. By calling attention to the good, you can change how your mind works.

 

Meditate:

Meditating is a great ritual to take up. It helps decreases stress levels and give you a peace of mind. It will help you with your impulses and reactions to stressful events. The benefits of meditating are endless and include better memory, more creativity, and less anxiety.

 

I hope the above helps 🙂

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤

  1. Thank you for sharing these tips. I’m often looking for ways to just get through the physical pain I have. Today is a yucky day (pain wise) but I’m trying to focus on other things. I’m acknowledging the pain but I’m finding ways to focus on other things. Your ideas are great reminders, constructive, and proactive. Thanks 🙂
    Blessings,
