"Bedtime Routine for a More Mindful Life"


Creating a bedtime routine can help you wind down and prepare for a more mindful life. Start by turning off all electronic devices at least 30 minutes before bedtime to reduce stimulation. Take a warm bath or shower to relax your body and mind, and put on comfortable sleepwear. Dim the lights in your bedroom to create a calming atmosphere, and practice deep breathing or meditation for a few minutes to clear your mind. Writing down any thoughts or worries in a journal can help release them from your mind. Read a book or listen to calming music to help you unwind. Set your alarm for the next day to avoid worrying about oversleeping. Turn off all lights and make sure your bedroom is quiet and cool. Finally, close your eyes and focus on your breathing to help you fall asleep.
