One thing on my list for this new and shiny year is to go to bed at a decent hour. It has every so slightly become a serious problem [see, I’ve talked about being tired before]. I know sleep is kind of important, especially when you are looking after 4 little la la’s, so I’ve decided I better get with it.
I think one of the best ways to actually follow through on this is to have a little ritual. Mine is going to look something like this [yes, I did say “going to” because, well, I’m working on it].
- 1st things first – Wash my face and slather myself in luxurious lotions + potions.
- make sure my bedroom is clean and uncluttered so that rest is easily inviting
- relax and do as I please, which likely means strolling around the inter webs, while partaking in a nice cup of tea
- Power down by 11pm [11:30 max] and from that point on reading or watching tv all for entertainments sake
and a rule I’m going to try to abide by is not taking my phone to bed. Its a big cheat on actually going to to sleep.
So tell me, do you have any bedtime routines or rituals that you follow?
Oh and if you need a good book to read before bed – these are still on my list!
