How to Create the Perfect Night-Time Routine

20.10.20

We often talk about morning routines and how important they are to make sure you have a good start for your day. Most of us find that if the morning goes well - we get up when our alarm goes off, enjoy a healthy breakfast and manage to get out of the house early enough to avoid traffic - the rest of our day follows suit. But it might surprise you to hear that one of the best ways to perfect your morning routine, is to create a more productive night-time routine.

What you do before bed, how well you sleep, and simply just how you feel when you close your eyes for the night, has a big effect on how you feel the next day. So in this post I'm going to share the best ways to create the perfect nightly routine.


Plan for the Day Ahead

Planning for the next day before you go to bed, means that you save time in the morning by just being able to jump straight in. Spend a little time before switching off writing a to-do list and thinking about what needs to be done first. I have always found that packing lunches and preparing outfits the night before really helps for a smooth morning too. 

Switch Off from Technology

Turning off your phone and other devices for an hour before you get into bed can make it easier to fall asleep. It’s also thought that leaving your phone switched off, or in another room overnight can be effective too - if you rely on it for an alarm, maybe just switch it to aeroplane mode instead to stop all notifications. Instead, relax with a book before bed or listen to a podcast to unwind.

Take Care of your Teeth

Cleaning your teeth should be an important part of both morning and night-time routines, but if you have misaligned teeth, it can make certain parts of your mouth difficult to reach. If this is your case, you may want to look into clear aligners from a company like Alignerco. These invisible braces can be worn only at night-time and can help to correct overbites, underbites, overcrowding, and other dental issues, all while you sleep. Take a look at alignerco.com to find the perfect clear braces for you.

Get the Right Amount of Sleep

If you want to work well the next day, you need to get a good night’s sleep. But while we talk about 8 hours a lot, this actually isn’t the correct amount of sleep for all of us. For most it’s between 7-9, but some of us may need more, and some of us can get by on less. But monitoring how you feel and how hard it is to get up in the morning can help you work out what you need. Once you do know, make sure you aim to get this right amount every single night.
