I know I’m not the only one who scrolls through countless TikToks of perfect morning and night routines – these people seem to be doing a million things before sunrise or have never accidentally turned on Netflix until when they are past their bedtime. The content of morning and night cravings can be overwhelming, and I find myself wondering if I should be doing it. everything taking care of myself at the beginning or end of my day. The simple answer is no. A morning and night routine should support what makes you happy and ready to start or end your day. Finding a method that works for you is all about experimenting – that’s what’s great about it to you process; it is yours. If you’re not sure how morning or night shifts work for you, don’t worry. We have some ideas to get you started.
A must have for your morning routine:
Your morning routine should be all about starting fresh. We all know it’s important to start your day off on a positive note, but how exactly do you do that? Below are six basic ideas, but the important part is to customize them to whatever you like.
Prepare your skin for the day
As simple as it is, splashing water on your face really helps to wake you up and improve your mood. If you have more time to go through a long skincare routine in the morning, it’s a great way to follow up on your daily routine. And whether you’ve just showered or you’ve got a 10-step routine, don’t forget to top it all off with SPF before you head out the door.
Drink water in the morning (and hydrate)
Coffee, tea, water, kombucha-oh my! The options are endless, and whether or not you’re the type of person who relies on caffeine on the go, find a healthy drink that you really love and focus on finishing that cup. enough. Regardless of your drink of choice, don’t forget to drink water!
Give yourself some safety time
Take extra time in the morning to really wake up. Whether you have an extra 60 seconds or 30 minutes, give yourself time to not rush to work. Write down your activities for the day, read a couple of pages in a book, unload the dishwasher, or take a few breaths to calm yourself down.
Prepare a hearty breakfast
We know it’s hard to make time for breakfast, but skipping meals in the AM can lead to it low energy levels later in the day. Try to plan and prepping your breakfast the night before if you have a difficult morning (overnight oats?) or schedule time in your morning to make yourself some avocados toast or a breakfast sandwich you can go if you want.
Exercising helps you wake up refreshed and energized for your day. If you can’t fit in enough exercise, a 10-minute walk or a few yoga poses will guarantee a good start to your day. Even stretching for 30 seconds can help the body wake up and feel refreshed.
Select morning confirmation
Often overlooked, this may be the easiest to apply. When you’re brushing your teeth or putting on your makeup, don’t forget to support positive energy throughout your day. Choose one goal for the day or think about how you feel, and remind yourself of that goal throughout the day.
Must haves for your night out:
It’s no surprise that your night routine should be the opposite of your morning routine. The goal here is to get down, but know exactly what you want to get out of it. PS: Spend more time in the evening or feel tired? Try to do one suggestion every night rather than one day.
Prepare your skin for the night
Your nighttime skincare routine should be slightly different from your morning routine. Ditch the daytime gels for a thick cream or nighttime serum and focus on the areas you need more attention to. If you have dry skin, choose a moisturizer, or use an exfoliant like retinol if your goal is anti-aging or brightening.
Prepare for tomorrow morning
Organize your clothes for the upcoming date the night before, wash your favorite mug, or organize your work space. Also, try to do a simple task the next day: wash the pot you put in the sink to “sink” or create an email message you want to send to someone. It allows you to cross off items on your to-do list that you may have been avoiding. Trust us, your future self will thank you.
Have an air system that helps you sleep
Whatever helps you relax, unwind, and fall asleep, find something that keeps you going and stick with it. For me, nothing screams “it’s time to relax” more than diffusing an oil or turning on a humidifier – something about the hum of the soft eucalyptus – or the fragrant steam that creates a relaxing atmosphere to experience good night’s sleep. You can also try reading, meditating, or taking a bath—anything that helps you sleep.
Remove the screen
PSA: Blue light from glasses can be disturbing your sleep (not to mention the anxiety you feel before you go to bed if you finish work or the FOMO you feel if you scroll through Instagram). Try reading before bed instead of using your glasses until your eyes start to droop.
Actions to add to each action plan:
There must be a balance between your night time schedule and your morning schedule. Play around a bit with your schedule and find what works for you: Does this activity work best for the beginning of your day, the end of your day, or maybe both?
Take a bath
I know what you might be thinking: WYeah, duh, I’m going to shower! And when you take a bath, you will have no other task except to take a bath in a normal way – not only to clean your body; it can also help clear your mind. Whether you are a morning or night showerer, keep that thought in mind as you focus on everything else but yourself.
Finally, one of the best ways to get a journal is to be able to look back at different places in your life and see what opportunities you were in. Journaling is a great practice to incorporate into your daily routine and work at any time of the day.
Change your mind
Need to wind down for a restful night’s sleep or get motivated for a busy day? Try to think quickly. As a newspaper, it works at any time of the day. If you have more time, try a long meditation session before bed or early in the morning to get you in the right frame of mind.
Stretching both in the morning and at night is my favorite part of my day. It allows me to spend time with not only my body but also my mind. In the morning, stretching is good for waking up the body, but in the evening, stretching can help the body release tension from the day. Try it every time to find out what works best for you.
