I have shared multiple posts about my morning routine or starting the day off purposeful. You can check those out here: Morning Routine 2022, 5 Morning Habits Before Mom Mode, 5 Ways To Become A Morning Person, and Waking Up The Day.
One of my goals this year was to get more of an evening routine in place and be more mindful about how I chose to spend that time ending the day. Creating an evening routine has definitely been more challenging, however I feel like I am finally establishing some good habits and becoming consistent in those.
One of the biggest things that has helped me was to create a bedtime for myself and follow through. We put both of our boys down at 7pm and have our lights out at 10pm during the week. Setting a time limit allowed me to create habits within that 3 hour block.
Currently my evening routine looks like this…
6:00pm-Clean Up Rooms + Living Room
7:00pm-8:00pm: Workout or Outside Walk
8:00pm-9:00pm: Show + Time With Hubby
9:00pm: Shower+ Skin Care
10:00pm: Lights Out
I personally wanted my last hour before bed to be screen free, which has made a huge difference in the quality of my sleep! I also wanted to read more so having a designated time has helped me stay motivated and consistent. I am also really enjoying my walks now that it is lighter longer because I typically spend that time in prayer since it is a time where I am distraction free.
Not every night is perfect, but I really am making an effort to stay consistent when I am able to! I would love to know if you have an evening routine, and if so what it looks like!
As always, sending light and love.
