Why Routines are Important

Routines in general, are important to implement, as they help you to live more intentionally. They help you to put certain things in life on auto-pilot and create habits to accomplish tasks without thinking.

Specifically, evening routines are important. In all honesty, the success of your morning is probably only 20% dependant on your morning routine. Where the real results come from is setting yourself up for success the night before. Mornings tend to be chaotic and unpredictable. If you can set out to implement certain tasks every night, you are eliminating or at least minimizing the morning madness. That way, when life hands you a curveball in the morning, you have the time and mental readiness to handle it.

Implementing an evening routine also helps you to create that space where you are winding down, quieting your mind, and preparing for a restorative night’s sleep.

While this is important for everyone, it is vital for anyone with a chronic illness, fatigue or pain, when you only have so much energy on any given day. These types of routines will help you to maximize your time and minimize your energy. If you don’t have the energy to do everything right before bed, then shift some of the tasks to the afternoon.

3 Evening Routines for More Productive Mornings

In no particular order, here are 3 great routines to implement the night before to help you set up the next day for success. Some of these you can even delegate to your spouse or kids!

 

1. Tidy Up

Either hand-wash your dinner dishes or place them in the dishwasher. Wash and clear the kitchen table.

Take 5 minutes and run through the main areas of the house and take care of the clutter.

Ensure keys, wallet, ID cards, handbag, etc are all in their proper place.

 

2. Prepare for the Next Day

Write down your priorities for the next day in your Daily Priority Tracker.

Fill your Essential Oil diffusers with water and your favorite Essential Oils.

Power up your earbuds (if you use them for work or exercise).

Check the weather forecast and lay out clothes for the next day. This can be yours, your spouse’s and/or your kids.

Prep lunches and lunchboxes as much as possible. Sometimes, you need to make something fresh in the morning, but you can layout as much as you can and ensure there is a spot in the fridge for tomorrow’s lunch items.

Prep coffee and/or ensure your tea kettle is full of water. Bonus points if you put out your favorite mug.

If you have children, review tomorrow’s schedule with them and ensure that everything is ready to go – homework, paperwork, sports gear, etc.

Make sure your meds for tomorrow are ready to go.

 

3. Take Time to Reflect

It goes without saying, but brush your teeth, put on your PJs, and wash and lotion up your face with all-natural skincare products.

Spray your sheets with lavender and turn on the diffuser in your bedroom with lavender or chamomile Essential Oils.

Speaking of chamomile, drink a cup of sleepy time tea.

Take a bath or shower. Drop Lavender Essential Oil on the shower floor or in your tub. Lather up with your favorite soap or bath salts.

Read a book.

Journal and practice your gratitudes.

Pray and/or meditate.

 

 

 

Practice Good Sleep Hygiene

In addition to your evening routines, it’s also good to practice good sleep hygiene.

Implement a “no screens” policy for 30-60 minutes before bedtime.

Wear your Blue Light Blockers to keep melatonin and your circadian rhythm in check.

Go to bed at a proper time and resist the temptation to binge-watch your favorite TV shows.
