A Healthy Bedtime Routine Everyone Should Follow ASAP

You might be tempted to wind down after a hectic day by lazing around or watching Netflix for hours on the stretch after all we earned it, right? And the next morning, feeling tired and quilty are the gifts of such a me-time. As it happens, good nighttime habits ensure a sound mind and body and make you relaxed and happy in life.

So the question here is, what is an ideal bedtime routine? So a simple response is that it should be a reflection of your morning goals. Ideally, it is unique for every individual; you are not bound to follow a hard and fast routine that doesn’t suit your temperament. But it would be best if you had a foundation to build your routine on, which is affected by factors like your screen time, amount of caffeine you are intaking and your exercise patterns.

Below are some ideas which you can personalize to make a unique bedtime for yourself.

Get prepared for the next day

That can incorporate things like setting out tomorrow’s outfit, stacking up your coffee machine so just with a press of the Start button, its good to go or jotting down the to-do list for the next day. Making these strides implies you’re less likely to screw your day by overlooking something important, and you will forestall choice weariness from setting in early tomorrow.

Manage some chores

It’s best not to let tasks pile up and steal your peace of mind. Better yet, inculcate a daily cleaning habit to keep your stress level down.

Talk to your loved ones

When you are depressed or feel lonely, you typically watch movies, sing songs, or go on long drives to reduce your anxiety. Ironically, this trick does the work indeed. But you will be amazed by the feeling of contentment you get after connecting with a friend or a partner even with just a text or a call.

Read a book

If you habitually read, then you do not need to know why it is so satisfying. A better option of getting your screen time is to read a book on it. Six minutes of reading can remove stress in the human body.

Essentially, the purpose of a nighttime routine is to loosen up and let your reality to diminish until it’s just you, a different world in your hand, and a decent night’s rest ahead.

Reading is a popular bedtime habit.

Make a gratitude Journal

Gratitude makes you mentally strong and you live a peaceful life because you acknowledge your blessings and you every day you see more things that make you grateful. It brings a feeling of contentment that you don’t have to work at it.


Mediation or yoga at nighttime boosts your parasympathetic system that relaxes your body and soul, helps you to truly let go of the depressing thoughts that take hold of you during the day.

Treat yourself with a decaf tea or warm cup of milk

Choose a decaf non-alcoholic drink that suits your taste buds, brew it fresh and bask in its warmth to get a peaceful rejuvenating sleep.
