How to Create a Mindful Evening Routine
This checklist outlines 10 steps to create a mindful evening routine that promotes relaxation and better sleep. It starts with setting a specific time to start winding down and turning off electronic devices at least 30 minutes before bedtime. Taking a warm bath or shower, practicing deep breathing or meditation, and writing down any thoughts or worries in a journal can help clear your mind. Reading a book or listening to calming music can help you fall asleep, while setting your alarm and dimming the lights in your bedroom can create a peaceful atmosphere. Reflecting on three things you're thankful for from the day and focusing on your breath can help you drift off to sleep. By using CheckYourList, you can easily create and track this checklist each night to establish a consistent and mindful evening routine.
