Having an evening routine is very beneficial to help you sleep better, and sleep well. If you are feeling stressed, hungry and on screens until you go to sleep your body won’t have time to wind down properly.
Meditation is a great way to relax and unwind at the end of your day. It can help you sleep better, be more productive, and even be less stressed. Here are some tips for getting started with meditation:
- Start small—try five minutes when you wake up or right before bedtime. If that’s going well, add another five minutes in week two and so on until you reach 20 minutes per day, which is considered the minimum amount needed to see benefits.
- Get comfortable—meditating on a cushion may not be practical if you’re short on space or just not ready for it yet (believe me). But meditating while lying down has been shown to produce similar benefits as meditating sitting up straight, so don’t feel like you need special equipment or clothing to give it a try!
- Make it part of your routine—we must commit ourselves completely when trying something new; otherwise, we risk falling off track too easily when life gets busy again later down the line! Find what works best for your needs by experimenting with different times during each day until finding something sustainable
First and foremost, prayers are a time of reflection—whether you say them out loud or in your head, they’re a way to take time before sleep to acknowledge what you’ve learned that day and how you can apply those lessons tomorrow. A nighly prayer might be as simple as “thank you for the food I ate today,” or as long as a meditation on how we interact with our families. The important thing is that it’s something that would make your heart feel lighter at the end of the day. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know any prayers by heart; just close your eyes and think about what feels like the right thing for your spirit at that moment!
Coming off screens
It’s amazing how much time we spend in front of screens. Not just at work or school, but also home. We read on our phones and tablets, watch TV and movies, play video games, use our computers as alarm clocks and even keep them in the bedroom! To create a relaxing evening routine you will want to limit your screen time as much as possible.
Turn off your phone and computer during dinner (or even better: leave them behind). Don’t read on a tablet or phone before bed; instead, try an old-fashioned book (yes there is such a thing!).
Hopefully, this article has inspired you to make some simple changes in your evening routine. Experiment with what works for you, and don’t be afraid to try different things until you find something that helps you sleep better at night. It may take some time before these tips turn into habits, but it’s worth the effort because your body will thank you for making these small adjustments!
