The next day starts the night before.
I recently shared my morning routine with you. You can read it here. Now, I’m going to share my evening routine with you.
Stretch & Foam Roll
When I’m ready to wind down for the night. I start my evening routine by stretching and or foam rolling. I will hold poses anywhere from 30 seconds up to a minute. This is a great way to check in with your body to see how you feel. I’ll notice if I feel anxious, have sore muscles, or any problem areas. That I may need to tend to or be aware of, for when I train the following day. Overall, it makes me feel good, centered, and grounded when I stretch before bed. Sometimes I’ll even do a short yoga sequence instead. It depends on how I feel.
This is a MUST for when I go to bed. When I stretch and foam roll, I’m usually rolling around on the floor. So when I’m done I like to take a shower. When I get out of the shower. I like to change into a nightgown. I like the way a nightgown feels against my skin. It feels soft and silky. Most if not all of my night gowns are from Victoria’s Secret.
I’m all about that NERD LIFE. During the day I like to wear my contacts. However, at night I like to change into my glasses. This gives my eyes an opportunity to rest from wearing my contacts all day.
After I’ve taken a shower and am ready for bed. I like to lower the screen brightness on all of my electronic devices. Mainly my iPhone my MacBook. My phone automatically lowers the brightness in the evening hours. But sometimes I’ll lower it all the way down.
Last but not least, I like to plan out the following day in my planner. I currently use the Happy Planner. Inside my Happy Planner I have time block sheets that I use to plan out my days. I’ll make a to do list of everything that I want to do for the following day. Then I use a pencil and roughly plan my day by time blocking everything that I wrote out on my to do list.
This concludes my evening routine. I filmed my evening routine on my YouTube channel to compliment this blog post. Click the link below to watch.
