Things To Do Nightly Before Bed
They say that how you wind down at the end of the day is just as important as how you start your day…
According to Running Magazine, a bedtime routine is important even for grown folks because it increases sleep duration as well as sleep quality.
THINGS TO DO NIGHTLY BEFORE BED
These are a few things that I would suggest you add to your nighttime routine:
Wash your face & brush your teeth
Practicing good hygiene is what will keep you looking good and improve your overall health.
We eat throughout the day and sometimes food gets stuck between your teeth which will cause bad breath and may lead to infections.
Before going to bed each night you should brush your teeth for 2 minutes and floss to get rid of all the gunk between your teeth that your toothbrush can’t reach.
If you smell the gunk that gets left on the floss you’ll be so disgusted you won’t forget to floss ever again!
Change your panty liner
If you wear a panty liner during the day then you should change it before bed. Do not sleep with the same panty liner that you wore the whole day.
Wearing a panty liner for too long may put you at risk of yeast infection and nobody wants that!
Reading is a great way to relax and unwind and what better time to do this than before you hit the sack?
Many people are busy throughout the day so right before bed is a great time to get in some light reading.
Journal — Reflect on the day
Do you journal? If not then I suggest you start.
I like to gratitude journal and reflect on my day right before I go bed.
Tea can be great to soothe and relax you before bed but just be sure that you choose the right tea and the right tea would be chamomile…
Whether you’re religious or more spiritual I think that it’s important to connect with the inner you before you go to bed as this also helps you to wind down at the end of a long day.
It is said that meditation aids in getting better sleep as it helps one to relax and quiet the mind. Meditation helps one achieve overall calmness which makes it easier to fall asleep.
These are just a few things you could add to your evening routine to help you get better sleep.
Getting good quality sleep is vital to living a happy and healthy life.
Again I ask, what does your bedtime routine look like? Perhaps it’s time to revamp it…
