Yesterday, I talked about the Morning Routine. All of your routines are important, but the Before Bed Routine is the most important. It sets the tone for how your morning starts. You want to keep your bedtime routine simple, so you can do it on a consistent basis.
The Before Bed Routine gets pushed off into late into the evening, and then you are too tired to even do one thing.
You can start your Before Bed Routine right after dinner, and it will help you start relaxing into the evening.
There are 6 simple steps:
- Check your calendar for tomorrow.
- Shine your sink.
- Pick out your clothes for tomorrow.
- Set items out at your Launch Pad
- Wash your face and brush your teeth.
- Go to bed at a decent hour.
Can you see where these set your morning up for success?
When is the last time you fell into bed in exhaustion and did not wash your face?
If you need to put a reminder on your phone to buzz you when it is time to start your routine, set it for 6:00 or 7:00 pm. Set it to go off close to the end of your dinner time. As you do your Before Bed Routine, you can remind your children to start their Routine, too.
You are thinking that it is crazy to lay your clothes out for the next day when you will just be at home. By laying your clothes you, you are taking off one more decision you have to make early in the morning. You are helping yourself to feel more productive once you get dressed each morning down to your lace-up shoes. Please try it, if you have not tried it before.
You can be successful with your daily routines. Remember to just keep it simple and consistent!
