The benefits of having a solid night-time and morning routine

Hello and welcome back to my tiny little space on the internet!

Routines, everyone is talking about them! This one claims to have the ultimate morning routine, another one says that you should get up at 5am and then there's me! Little ol' me, jumping on the routines bandwaggon but with the facts and important stuff!

Having a solid nighttime routine, in my opinion, is more important and beneficial than a morning routine.

So, what does a night-time routine actually achieve? 

  1. Let's your body and mind know that it is time to wind down and shut off which in turn helps you to gain more sleep and if not more a better quality sleep with a lot less tossing and turning. 
  2. You will often find that your mornings will run smooth, like crazy smooth!
  3. Your body clock with naturally fall into its own routine and soon waking up groggy to an alarm will be a thing of the past, your body clock will come at you in full force.
  4. You will easily fall asleep even when you are in a different environment if you follow your nighttime routine steps outside of your own home. 

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that a morning routine doesn't matter because they do! A hell of a lot! From personal experience, once a solid night-time routine is in place it is miles easier to follow a morning routine.

That's enough bigging up morning routines, but what do they actually do?

  1. Morning stress, running late and rushing out of the door will become a thing of the past! 
  2. You will actually have time to relax in the morning, reducing the stress throughout the rest of your day. 
  3. Mornings will no longer be something that you hate or dread. 
  4. You will become one of those morning people! 

Do you have a nighttime or morning routine that you stick to? If so, how do you feel like it helps you!?
