Getting a good start in the morning has always been a struggle. Finally I realized that a good morning routine actually starts the night before. So I carefully crafted an intentional nighttime routine to create the best tomorrow I could.
The real key is to make your routine work for you. Personalize your schedule to fit your lifestyle, obligations, family, body clock, and preferences.
By sharing my own routine, I hope to inspire you and help you brainstorm the things that will work in your life.
My Nighttime Routine
- Process Getting Things Done inboxes
- Review calendar and task list for the next day
- Complete beauty regimen
- Take nightly vitamins
- Put out gym clothes and pack gym bag
- Meditation/prayer time
- Nightly journaling – better, amazing
- Drink cocoa
- Read or watch TV with my hubs
This process helps me wrap up my day and wind down for a good night's sleep!
Recently I've begun taking a set of nootropics (to enhance mental ability) and geroprotectors (to promote healthy life extension). These are scientifically formulated by a company called Thrivous. Taking these vitamins is part of both my morning and nighttime routines, and I add some at lunch time as well.
Although I can swallow pills just fine, I tend to get somewhat nauseous after taking them. I take these with water and then follow with either a meal or my famous cocoa. No problems at all with that method!
