If you’re struggling in your day-to-day life, it’s time to get REFRESHED.

If you find yourself feeling sluggish or stressed throughout the day, it may be time to take a look at your nighttime routines. You may find yourself scrambling around after work, doing your best to take care of chores or finish up last-minute errands; other times, you may just melt into the couch and watch TV for hours and hours. However, your night’s final activities can have a huge impact on your upcoming day’s mood and energy levels, as what you do before bedtime determines how well you sleep. To be your best each day, it’s important to create a structured, relaxing nighttime routine. 

Here are some things that people do each night to wind down and set themselves up for daily success:

1. Relax and unwind: This may involve yoga, stretching, or an evening stroll.

2. Eat dinner mindfully: Sit down and enjoy a healthy meal.

3. Family connections: Spend quality time with your loved ones.

4. Reflect: Reflect on the positive moments of your day.

“To be your best each day, it’s important to create a structured, relaxing nighttime routine.”

5. Envision tomorrow: Thinking about the following day can help you sleep with a clear mind.

6. Sleep: Falling asleep at the same time each night can help you be more focused.

7. Hygiene: Have a routine. This may involve showering, brushing your teeth, and combing your hair. This signals to your brain that you’re ready for bed.

8. Enjoy a good book: Spend about 30 minutes to an hour reading. It helps relax your mind and expand your imagination.

9. Disconnect: The blue light from electronics affects our brain’s levels of the sleep hormone melatonin, so put away phones and tablets an hour before bedtime.

You might have noticed that the first letters spell out an acronym: REFRESHED. So, when you find your days are starting to drag a bit, just remember to stay REFRESHED when you return home at night.
