10 Things Every Woman Should Do Before Bedtime

Creating a bedtime routine for adults is one of the smartest things that you can do for yourself. After running around in mental overdrive, you can slow down and focus on what matters the most. 
The major benefit of having a bedtime routine is that it is catered for you 
By the time you are finished, your body should feel relaxed and ready for lights out. 
We could not be happier to help you achieve one of the best gifts we can give to ourselves so here are 10 things every woman should do before bedtime

Eating late meals and drinking alcohol before bed can create unhealthy sleep habits and encourage weight gain 
Try limiting you're eating window to at least an hour and a half before bedtime to improve your metabolism and sleep quality & In case you get the late-night munchies try healthier food options like oatmeal, yogurt, or nuts to boost those melatonin levels before bedtime. 
 

3. Create a Pre-Bedtime Playlist

Making a bedtime playlist can help you start letting go of mental attachments the frequencies help slow thoughts, relax muscles and dissolve anxiety. 
Listening to music, particularly classical on ourVintage Bluetooth Suitcase Record Player wouldhelp with sleep, but do not feel obligated to listen to a specific genre. Try some R&B, bossa nova or jazz. If it helps your sleep routine, it should help you sleep more soundly! 
 

4. Lower the Lights and Turn off Electronic Devices Before Bed

Screens from TVs, smartphones and laptops emit blue light that stimulates the body’s internal clock (circadian rhythm), keeping you buzzing long after and since the circadian rhythm regulates the body’s temperature, the body will adapt to the lower room temperature and dim light, and you will begin to hibernate 
Great tip! Wearing a  Meditation in Progress Eye Mask  helps to bed helps retain high melatonin levels through the night 
 

5. Wash off Stress in the shower or Bath

Taking a shower or bath one or two hours before bed lowers the body’s temperature and encourages healthy sleep Even if you’re a morning bather, it feels good to wash off the day & what is better than finally taking off that makeup & doing that relaxing skincare routine with organic and sustainable products like thecinnabar green collection 
 

6. Reduce Anxiety with a To-Do list

Creating a to-do list prevents the mind from worrying about tomorrow’s tasks. Bedtime writing is a mental dump of information that organizes future responsibilities and allows you to release anxiety. When you wake up in the morning, you will have a plan ready to start the day. 
 

7. Jot down your thoughts in a Journal

You do not need to author a novel in a night, but you can address the thoughts and emotions that you have been putting on hold all day. Put some chamomile tea in your favorite mug Focus on the Good Smiley Face Funky Mug, put theDiamond Girl Metal Ballpoint Pento paper and let it flow. By taking 10 to 15 minutes, you may be surprised at how many lines get filled. 

If you’re up for more mental cleaning at bedtime, then a longer writing session may be in order.
