How To Build A Healthy Night-Time Routine

Who needs to work on their sleep hygiene?⁣ I underestimated the power of sleep for SO long and I had no interest in building a healthy night-time routine.

I was getting to bed at around 10-11pm and figured six hours of sleep each night was a solid effort….

Ohhh boy was I wrong. I needed at least 2 coffees to start my day and I was absolutely EXHAUSTED come 4pm.

Sleep is EVERYTHING.⁣

It’s like charging your battery each night. ⁣ If you don’t get enough quality sleep it’s like waking up at 75% battery each day. ⁣

This affects everything:

  • Sleep
  • Mood
  • Hormones (stress, hunger and reproductive)
  • Focus
  • Digestion⁣

(Just to name a few!)

As a fellow anxiety warrior, I know first hand how poor sleep shuts down the whole park. ⁣

So I decided it was about time I developed my own bedtime routine so I could finally get a good night’s sleep and wake up with boundless energy – no stimulants required!

It took a bit of experimenting, but I’m proud to say I’ve become a routine QUEEN lately!

Try this checklist consistently for 2 weeks and come back to let me know how it’s working. ⁣

My 6-step healthy night-time routine

  • Keep your room cool (around 65F/18C is recommended)
  • Cut screen time 30 mins before bed
  • Read 10-15 minutes before bed
  • Take a warm shower or bath
  • Apply essential oil like lavender or cedarwood, or use natural supplements like ashwagandha and lemon balm to help with insomnia.
  • Sleep with your phone in another room

 

Motivated Morning

 

The key to a healthy night-time routine is getting to bed early!

I don’t know about you, but I feel so much more productive when I get an early start.⁣

I want to share with you the same steps I recommend to my clients because it WORKS!⁣

I had one client tell me yesterday that she’s been waking up before her alarm for the last week!⁣

It’s SUPER important to keep this up on the weekends. When you stay out or wake up late two days in a row it makes waking up early Monday morning so much harder because it throws off your circadian rhythm. ⁣

Getting your sleep routine in check makes a world of difference to your clarity, energy, and productivity.

How to wake up earlier

  • Go to bed 30 minutes earlier tonight
  • Set your alarm 30 minutes earlier tomorrow morning
  • Maintain this for a week
  • Then increase to an hour earlier
  • Maintain or modify as needed
